    Song rips. Cory's vocals sound great.

    Song has me excited, album art is sweet, vinyl variants look terrific. Still so far away though.

    Love how the song ends. With 13 tracks I wonder if they'll have any interludes

    These guys have been on fire these last two records. I'm willing to bet the streak continues here.

    Honestly haven't listened or followed much of this genre since high school, but that was rad.

    I don't listen to this genre much anymore but NJ is just so consistent and solid. I can't deny myself these brutal jams :-)

    Always been in the minority on Wrongdoers, did not really care for that one much. This song is cool though, always willing to give some new NJ a shot.

    Really dig the new song. They, along with ETID, always surprise me with how they can continue to write heavy, riff-driven tunes that still sound fresh.

    Wrongdoers has become one of my favorite albums. I have listened to it a ton. I can't wait for this.

    I'm interested, but uninteresting. Prestigious

    This is very good.

    I keep expecting them to not be so fucking good and I'm always wrong. This is toughhhhhhhh. I need to go back to Wrongdoers.

    Will I even have the strength to do anything?

    1,000,000 Watts is absolutely fantastic

    NJ is like the only hardcore band I can still listen to. Like this new tune.
  22. mattylikesfilms


    You should! That record is pretty damn good. I would say Meridonal is slightly better as a fully realized record but songs like "Funeral Singer", "Triffids", and "Hive Minds" are just so damn good that it's a close call for me.

    D'oh! Prestigious

    Totally not let down by that single, it sounds heavy and great, I guess I'll need to get more excited for the album in the end.

    This is a war, sober up

    Single sounds good, I'm so hyped for this album! I don't know if they can top Wrongdoers, but I'll sure as hell be listening regardless.

    Norma Jean has surprisingly been the band in heavy music I've never really checked despite loving bands like ETID and The Chariot. This song rips. I'll be checking out the rest of the discography ASAP.
