Biography

There are several artists named Norma Jean, the by far most popular being a metalcore/mathcore band from Douglasville, Georgia, U.S.A. (1). Norma Jean is also a country singer from Wellston, Oklahoma (2).

(1)
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”

    Эти ребятки могетут. Вот я не особо жалую такую музыку, но Норма одна из тех редких исключений. По мне так их лучший альбом это O God, The Aftermath, потом уже исходник Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child и на третье поставлю последний на данный момент их альбом Wrongdoers, так же отличным получился Redeemer, а вот на Meridional мне не нравится запись, хотя сам альбом отличный, жира совсем нет и как то тихо записан, а вот Anti Mother я так до сих пор и не понял.

    O God, the Aftermath is so heavily underrated, it's outrageous.

    ll of the songs off of Meridional are great, that whole album lacked cohesiveness and just felt like a giant mess to listen to from start to end, a total lack of flow between the tracks and just complete misdirection, im not saying it was an awful album, but it could of been improved with more direction within the album. The Anti-Mother though is definitely the weakest out of all Norma Jean records, it focuses much more on more mainstream qualities and i just d - иди нахуй идиотка

    The Anti-Mother and Meridional? really? like i mean Wrongdoers i could definitely get behind being one of their best records, but The Anti-Mother and Meridional are far from being the best Norma Jean albums, while i agree that all of the songs off of Meridional are great, that whole album lacked cohesiveness and just felt like a giant mess to listen to from start to end, a total lack of flow between the tracks and just complete misdirection, im not saying it was an awful album, but it could of been improved with more direction within the album. The Anti-Mother though is definitely the weakest out of all Norma Jean records, it focuses much more on more mainstream qualities and i just dont feel that that sort of sound works as well with Norma Jean, i still do enjoy it like any other sound that Norma Jean has done but its definitely not a sound id like to hear Norma Jean play around with some more.

    Meridional, The Anti Mother and Wrongdoers are the best for me. These albums got a lot of cacthy songs. Bur Bless the Martyr and kiss the child is also great work. The song Face: Face brought me into Norma Jean.

    bless the martyr kiss the child is still their best album. it has the most character. o god the aftermath is damn good in its own right, but it's more technically impressive than it is sentimentally awesome. if that makes any sense. in other words, you flip shit to the songs on bless the martyr. you groove and admire the complexity of the songs on o god. both are great for two different reasons, but bless the martyr is more special.
