Code Orange - I Am King Cover

Our Reviews Editor Andy Biddulph might just have found his new favourite band. Take it away, Andy...

Same, stale or even logical aren’t words that Code Orange (neé Code Orange Kids) seem familiar with. Always keen to shake things up a little, the band have changed their sound along with their name, and it’s paid off on their second full-length. With its heady mix of head-caving drone, battering hardcore and classic rock riffery, ‘I Am King’ is a record unlike any other. The almost unbearably intense ‘Slowburn’ and ambient ‘My World’ are just two cuts of an album littered with highlights, meaning by the end of this 33-minute pummeling, you’ll only need one word: breathtaking.
