Videos of the Week: Code Orange and Tomahawk


Well, I’m a bit late with this post, but better late than never 🙂

First up check out the new video from Code Orange (previously known as Code Orange Kids).  What really gets me about this video is besides the unsettling themes and even more disquieting grungy doom metal accompanying is the choice to use a washed out, Super 8 VHS aesthetic.  It really blends well with the music and makes the video much more freaky.  Going by the released singles and this video, Code Orange’s upcoming record, I am King (out Sept. 2nd, 2014 via Deathwish Records), is sounding to be a smashing and very unique record.  We’ll have more on that for you in the near future 🙂

 

And to counterbalance that bit of disturbing art, here’s Mike Patton as a Crank Yankers puppet.  Need I say more why this is awesome?  South Paw comes off Tomahawk’s 2013 record Oddfellows.  Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!

Video Of The Week: Code Orange – I Am King


Short, but oh, so fucking sweet!

This is title track taken from their upcoming album “I Am King” out Sept 2nd, hopefully it will include even more of this brutally tasty and chaotic style. I’m writing it down on my list of anticipated releases immediately.
