The sound is suggestive of buildings crumbling, fault lines opening and emergency relief crews rushing to the aid of your flat-lining stereo.
Coed Pittsburgh hardcore upstarts Code Orange Kids now simply go by the name Code Orange, but advancing age (i.e., their 20s) hasn’t mellowed them any.
Their new record, “I Am King,” released Tuesday, is heavier, moodier and more metallic than the band’s 2012 debut “Love is Love/Return to Dust.”
There’s plenty of raw-throated, short-and-not-so-sweet blasts of serrated punk and lumbering sludge dirges, but there’s also the haunting, brooding “Dreams in Inertia,” which brings to the mind the dark melodies of bands like Jucifer and Alice in Chains.
These Kids have grown up, in more ways than one.
