There is nothing fluffy to be said about the sixth and upcoming new studio album from American metalcore veterans Norma Jean – it’s simply straight-up, almost radio-friendly metalcore that will not be remembered by posterity. “If You Got It At Five, You Got It At Fifty”, the second track off the new record and the first to be released in its entirety on YouTube, is an accurate representation of the record in general: it’s fast, it’s kinda noise-rocky, it has breakdowns, and there are only hoarse screams for vocals. Nothing surprising or aurally breath-taking here.
But with that said, keep your ears out for the vocally hooky “Sword In Mouth, Fire Eyes” for your dose of teenage angst, and the strangely psychedelic, doom-metallish eleventh and final track, “Sun Dies, Blood Moon”.
Run Time: 2:23
Release Date: August 06, 2013
