Watch Code Orange Destroy an Arena Crowd at NXT Takeover Brooklyn
It’s a damn good time to be Code Orange. The hardcore heavyweights opened WWE’s NXT Takeover Brooklyn show with a performance of “Bleeding in the Blur” before playing superstar Aleister Black’s entrance music with Incendiary vocalist Brendan Garrone.
2017 has been a breakout year for Code Orange, thanks to the band’s third full-length album, Forever. WWE’s NXT brand has been picking out great rock and metal for their Takeover themes for a few years, but Code Orange made history by being the first band to perform live at an NXT event. Code Orange kicked off the show with “Bleeding in the Blur,” which hasn’t been added to WWE’s YouTube channel, but the jam was captured by fans at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
After the energetic performance, Code Orange returned to the ramp a few matches into the show, playing Aleister Black to the ring. Code Orange welcomed Brendan Garrone into the group to play Black’s “Evil Terminators” theme, which Garrone sang on in collaboration with entrance music masters CFO$.
Code Orange and Garrone nearly blew Black off the stage with energy, almost neutralizing the wrestler’s stoic persona and Nosferatu-inspired entrance. The musicians were interviewed after playing live, hopefully introducing a new audience of fans to the music.
