    Highly anticipating the new record due out in November. Probably my most anticipated for the rest of the year (that has been officially announced).

    Wish they would add Wrongdoers to Apple Music.

    My favorite Norma Jean album is either Meridional or The Anti-Mother.

    My favorites are Wrongdoers and Meridional.

    I love this band.

    Wait unless I'm going crazy and they changed it, isn't the new album coming in September?

    Yep you're right. September 9th. Nice

    EDIT: the lead singer is in a side project with members from Every Time I Die and Dead & Divine. Their first single, Fracture, was just released today.

    My favorite band to see live. Caught them on the O'God The Aftermath tour and the most recent one and they killed it both times.

    That sounds like a lot of fun. I've never seen them either.

    Hopefully they play some new material.

    They did one new song on their last tour with He Is Legend. Don't remember the name of it (Andromeda something something) but it sounded pretty good. I love that they've been doing a lot of small bar venues.

    Haven't liked anything they've done after Josh left.

    I hate O'God, but enjoy everything else. Wrongdoers is probably my least favorite.

    I do not exist.

    I really like O'God. Only album I've not got into was The Anti-Mother.

    Anti-Mother may be my favorite.

    It took me forever to get into The Anti-Mother. Still my least favorite but I enjoy most of it now. I was kind of late on getting into them in general so my favorite is either Meridional or Wrongdoers.

    Saw them last night and what a show that was. Played a lot more older material than I thought they would which was awesome. They also played a new song which sounded good too. I'm aching so much at work today though.

    New song sounds awesome. Sounds like a natural progression from Wrongdoers with a lot of noise and different sounds going on.

    Norma Jean is probably my favorite band. I have all of their CDs in my car right now. I think their whole discography has something to it.

    BTM - the original, raw, 2000's metal core sound. Fan favorite
    O'God - technical Botch rip off that's too good for itself
    Redeemer - more refined and streamlined sound with some of my favorites (Small Spark, Songs)
    Anti-Mother - A solid release with some cool stuff (easily their weakest, IMO)
    Meridional - Big sound, pretty much a more refined Anti-Mother (my least favorite though)
    Wrongdoers - I see this as a "revitalized" aggressive heavy Norma Jean

    Polar Similar will probably be a lot of dissonant, atmospheric, noisy, Deftones-like sound. Overall super stoked.

    What do you think of Luti-Kriss "Throwing Myself"?

    Just preordered the record. Stoked for it.

    It's alright. I think it was a good segway into BTM. Has some minor nu-metal influences here and there that used to throw me off. I don't listen to it much because I don't find it to be that great or memorable. It's a great example of a young band that you knew had bigger things coming (like ETID's Last Night in Town.)

    The first time I saw them play was shortly after "Throwing Myself" came out, so I've always identified with the Scogin era of Norma Jean, so those two are my favorites.

    I've always liked Scogin more than Cory but I've come to respect him and like the sound he brought to later releases.

    This video from 2002 is incredible.

    Those were some of my first shows ever. Man, so incredible! Glad I got some stuff signed at that point.
