Norma Jean - O God, The Aftermath

Just when I thought this band couldn't possibly write more derived, nonsensical music and lyrics, they proved me wrong. Botch should be pissed by how much these idiots have ruined their sound.

I would rather chop my fingers off one by one than by forced to listen to this again. There aren't enough synonyms for "suck" to even cover this release.

* This is a special note to all the people bashing my opinion on this release for whatever reason: so I don't like this stupid band! is the world going to end? No. I'm sure I like plenty of bands you don't like. People have different opinions, deal with it.

this is so relevant to this thread now, that i have to bring up my roommate's interest in this band.

he bought fucking "Bless the Martyr" after hearing that they have a lot of fans "so they must be pretty good."

he asked me what i thought of the cd after a few weeks of him playing around the apartment, i said, "honestly, i think it sucks, i think its a bunch of douches that heard an odd time signiature in a stupid new school metalcore or hardcore breakdown with some screechy dischords and tried to make a whole fucking album out of it. i think its pretty annoying." he then said, "yeah, i don't really like it either... i mean, i'm kinda glad i bought the cd... i don't know..."

a couple weeks later, he took a plain grey zip-up hoodie and some black iron-on letters and ironed "NORMA JEAN" onto the front of the hoodie and he continues to play the cd only when i'm not around. he also digs the Chariot. the Cha-Cha-Cha-Riot. whatever.

we share the apartment, and it is his cd player that we use, so he can listen to what he wants, i would rather someone be honest with me about what they like, even if i hate it.

i expect such a thread for a band like Atreyu but the incredible hatred toward Norma Jean is a bit confusing to me. based on pics they dont seem that incredibly fashioncore to me. there is no gay emo singing. i just dont see what all the hatred is about. i like the first record even if this opinion does get me crucied. the new songs i've heard (this will get me lynched for sure) sound like the last Coalesce album to me.

i think they're bland and repetitive, but i dont understand the overwhelming hatred they recieve either. there are worse bands out there that people on this site don't react as strongly toward. oh well, i stand by my previous norma jean statment...

the material just reminds me of the chaotic groove stuff coalesce did on :12 revolution in unlistening. especially because of the new vocalist.

Bunch of fucking homophobes on this fucking board. Metal til I'm 60 looks like he'll die by the time he's 40, the fat fuck. Step away from the computer and go exercise before you go into cardiac arrest.
