Norma Jean is a metalcore/ mathcore band from Douglasville, Georgia, USA- a suburb of Atlanta. They were originally known as Luti-Kriss. They released two albums: an EP (titled 5ep) in 2000, and a full-length release, Throwing Myself on March 13, 2001. After the release of Throwing Myself, the band changed their name to Norma Jean to avoid confusion with rapper Ludacris.

Their original vocalist, Josh Scogin, left the band right after the release of Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child and went on to start The Chariot. He was temporarily replaced by Brad Norris, who was then replaced by Cory Brandan, formerly of Eso-Charis, Living Sacrifice, Uses Fire, and The Handshake Murders.

On August 13, 2002, the band released Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child on Solid State Records which inculded released single ‘Face:Face’ with the video directed by Darren Doane. They released their second album in March of 2005, titled O God, the Aftermath. almost exactly a year later, they re-released O’God as a Deluxe edition CD\DVD combo with a few hours of recording and tour footage as well as three music videos for Bayonetwork, Liarsenic, and Absentimental.

Norma Jean’s third studio album, Redeemer, was released on September 12, 2006, under Solid State records. This was the third studio album since changing their name. shortly after, they released a music video for the song “Blueprints for Future Homes” which was directed by the same Swedish twins that directed “Liarsenic”
