Norma Jean

Not to be confused with the late-'70s disco diva (who sang with Chic in 1977 before going solo and scoring a hit with 1978's "Saturday") or the country singer (who enjoyed a successful run in the '60s), this Norma Jean is a Christian alternative metal/metalcore band previously known as Luti-Kriss. Norma Jean adopted a rap-metal approach during their early years; in reviews, the former Luti-Kriss was often described as the Christian equivalent of Limp Bizkit, Korn, (hed) p.e., Methods of Mayhem, or Rage Against the Machine. As the bandmates' tastes evolved, however, they turned away from rap-metal in favor of a heavier sound. The Southern band has enjoyed a small but enthusiastic cult following in the alt-metal underground, where they appeal to both Christian and non-Christian headbangers.

Norma Jean was formed in Douglasville, Georgia (a suburb of Atlanta), in 1997. In the early 2000s, the band recorded two CDs as Luti-Kriss. Their first release was the 5 EP, followed in 2001 by the full-length Throwing Myself on Seattle's Solid State label, a subsidiary of Tooth and Nail Records. Often mistaken for the controversial rapper Ludacris -- who, coincidentally, is also from the Atlanta area -- the members of Luti-Kriss opted to adopt the Norma Jean name. Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child introduced this new moniker in 2002; it was also the band's heaviest, most brutal effort to date. While Norma Jean's first recordings inspired comparisons to Limp Bizkit and Korn, Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child was often compared to Hatebreed. Isis and Mastodon producer Matt Bayles lent his help to 2005's O God, the Aftermath, while Korn and Limp Bizkit producer Ross Robinson helmed the epic Redeemer in 2006. Chris Raines, the drummer for Spitfire, joined the band in early 2008, and the new lineup released Antimother that summer. In 2010, they released Meridional. While the album felt like a creative high point for the band, their return to the studio would be a rough one, with bassist Jake Schultz, guitarist Scottie Hickey, and drummer Chris Raines all parting ways during the two-year recording process. The remaining members pressed on, though, recruiting guitarist Jeff Hickey, drummer Clayton Holyoak, and bass player John Finnegan to join their ranks. The result of their hard work, the surprisingly vital and cohesive Wrongdoers, arrived in 2013. The band re-signed with Solid State Records for their next outing, releasing the singles "1,000,000 Watts" and "Synthetic Sun" in June 2016. The resulting Polar Similar, their seventh studio long-player, arrived later that August. ~ Alex Henderson

What christian bands hate on sinners ? Calling a person a sinner is not a putt down we all r sinners we all come short we all need the same thing love and grace and Jesus sorry if u feel that way I don't think that there trying to portray that

Yup they're christian. Don't like it? Don't listen to it. I don't approve of Behemoth or Deicide being actual satanists, but I don't go on and whine about it, I just avoid the songs that promote satanism. They don't even do a lot of preaching in their music anyway. Yeah, they're Christian, but they're tolerant and not the kind where they call everyone sinners and hate on people. If you still don't like their music, then just move on and quit your complaining.

I know it sounds like that but a lot of kids can't listen to it unless it has that labile because usually that means it doesn't need parental supervision on it and it is a lot more up beet and clean and is a teaching platform to what there baleafs are that's all but I see your point and some bands r proud to be called a christian band
Report as inappropriate
It just pisses me off when a band touts itself as a Christian band. What does that even mean? Would a Christian band of all white members call itself a White band, too? They would not, unless they were separatists of some kind --- so don't give me the apologetics and claim, It doesn't matter, because it does - unless a Christian band is a separatist band of some sort. There's a ton of Christians out there that associate metal as devilish, of course a Xtian metal band is a means to an end.

I've been to 6 Norma jean concerts and they've said maybe 1 thing about their religion and it was before they started to play they asked the audience to please join in silence as they pray and they did it only once out of the 6 shows I've been to. plus lets be honest some of the most talented musicians are from Christian based bands such as August burns red Texas in July and in the midst of lions.

they don't claim their music style to be Christian they claim them selves as Christians not afrai

Report as inappropriate
@Ai the Tagger. I have been to like 5-7 Norma Jean shows and have never heard them preach. Ever. So, yeah. Quit lying to make your point. Also, some of the best bands in this genre are Christian. Don't Christians have their own styles of music anyway--that is utterly ridiculous. Such an absurd statement that I don't even know how to respond adequately.

Lol really? who cares if there a christian band or not, they f**kin know how to jam. Thats all that matters. there is no heaven or hell, were all just here for the ride, so enjoy the music and everything else that comes in life.
Report as inappropriate
Why do people get so worked up about a band's religious beliefs when the music itself is not down-your-th r o a t preachy? And why do we have to reserve certain genres for certain people? Music is a tool for expression and can be used for good and bad, much like a knife can be used for surgery or for murder. Part of the beauty of music is the ability to express yourself in non-conventi o n a l ways. Let go of your labels, enjoy the music for what it is and interpret it for yourself.
Report as inappropriate
I think it's kinda hypocritical for a Christian band to adopt musical styles that served as the primary resistance to said religion. Also, don't Christians have their own styles of music anyway? Also I saw Norma Jean live once. It was good, till they started in with the whole accept Jesus into your life stuff. No offense to the Christians, but I am perfectly happy with my personal philosophy, and I don't mind if it's wrong and I'll be damned to hell for not abandoning my beliefs.

There's no religion in pure Christianity anyway. We ARE the church. We just have to follow Christ. I love Jesus and like Norma Jean.
