Editorial Reviews

Produced by Ross Robinson (At The Drive-in, From First To Last, Sepultura), "Redeemer" is at once the heaviest and most personal album in this bands arsenal and thats saying something: With their 2002 Solid State Records debut, "Bless The Martyr And Kiss The Child," Norma Jean established themselves as one of the noisiest and most adventurous young bands in metal today. With the 2005 follow-up, "O God, The Aftermath," drummer Daniel Davison, bassist Jake Schultz, and guitarists Chris Day and Scottie Henry welcomed new vocalist and Arkansas native Cory Brandan to their lineup and took their artful, technical noise to the proverbial next level, earning critical acclaim and a 2006 Grammy nomination (for Asterik Studios awe-inspiring artwork) in the process, and embarking on a grueling tour schedule that most recently found them on Ozzfest 2006s second stage. And now, "Redeemer," Norm Jeans most unhinged, soul-baring playing to date. No matter how you interpret it, one things for sure: Slide it into your player, and you will feel Redeemer more than any other Norma Jean album. Emotional, spiritual, visceral, physical this isnt just the third album Norma Jean wanted to make; its the career-defining statement they had to.

Disturbing cover art? Yep. Song titles that have little or nothing to do with the songs themselves? You got it. Manically driven, chaotic music? Of course. All signs point to a new offering from southern starlets Norma Jean. After 2005's "O God The Aftermath" it seems the band wasted little time in writing and recording their explosive follow up. Enlisting the help of heralded producer Ross Robinson (At The Drive In, Glassjaw, Blood Brothers) to turn the knobs in the studio, "Redeemer" was promised to be one of 2006's most anticipated and interesting listens. And the question that it comes down to is, is it worth the hype? Well to that, I would have to answer most definitely. Following their typical musical direction, Norma Jean have crafted a record which sounds nothing like their previous efforts. That's what is most gratifying about the release. Those looking for a "Bless The Martyr..." pt 2 or a continuation of anything the band had previously been doing need not apply. "Redeemer" is a beast all its own.

While the musical style on "Redeemer" might lean a little more towards "O God, The Aftermath" than "Bless The Martyr...", it really is vastly different from either of the two releases. Where as OGTA sought to take monstrous sound of BTMKTC a bit further, "Redeemer" does a nice job of molding the chaos and competency. Most songs incorporate vast ranges of sonic dissonance, and yet small does of legibility which make a lot of the tracks sound more complete than OGTA. Take "A Grand Scene For A Color Film", the explosive album opener, for example. It starts off in typical tumultuous fashion, but throughout seems to slip into slight bits of coherence. This is the pattern with many song found on the album. But don't worry, most tracks are still overly crushing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reedemer is Reedemed September 14, 2006
By Sylo
Format:Audio CD
I have to be honest while I really enjoy this genre of music I find that too many of its bands get stuck sounding the same on every record and every song ends up being the same heavy guitar riff coupled with the inaudible screaming. So when Norma Jean surprised me with another record only one year after thier awesome sophomore record, O God The Aftermath, I was very skeptical and yet I wanted them to prove me wrong.

I really have to say they did prove me wrong. The screaming is varied. The song structures are alot more creative this time around and they do a good job of really making each song stand out on its own. While many of the riffs may sound a little familiar by the end of the song you will see how they managed to break the mold and truly give their fans a record worth owning.

The vocals are actually understandable at times which was something I really missed from the "Bless the Martyr" days. Usually I am wary of a band that releases another record so soon after the last but it doesn't sound rushed at all. The art work is cool but alot more subtle then on the last record. This record is a beast and should be in any fans CD collection.

Props to these southern maniacs for once again proving that all of the hype for this band is justified.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes folks, the south is on fire September 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Call it a new-found sense of direction, call it "selling out", call it another step towards world domination, call it the end of hardcore/metalcore, call it what you will, but in the end, Norma Jean's latest record (their 3rd, and 2nd in just over a year) still kicks, but, with a melodic twist. Some of you who liked "O God the Aftermath" will like this record, but for those who swear by "Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child", it may be a little tougher to swallow, because there are good portions of melody within the chaotic confines of Redeemer that may not appeal to the diehards. Some of those diehards have already heard the album and cried "sellout!". Believe me, I was one of them.

The first song I heard from the album was "Blueprints for Future Homes" off of Norma Jean's Myspace page. Yes I listened to it when it was streamed after midnight sometime in late July. I heard it, listened to it, again and again...and it wasn't a slam dunk to me. I knew it was a change, but...I was worried that the guys were gonna go soft, and I was especially worried that the fellows from the Jean, for some of the punishing songs that they've done before, would commit a whole album to this kind of melody. However, when "The End of All Things Will Be Televised" was released later on via Myspace, I was quickly vindicated. Yes, a heavy song, tempo changes, and somehow they made melody work within this song...yes! I then heard "A Small Spark vs. a Great Forest"...another winner, a bit more melodic than "The End..." but it showed me that these guys somehow pulled melody and menace together quite wonderfully.

Then I went and bought the album at Best Buy for just over 8 bucks two days after it came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Norma Jean's Comeback December 31, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
First off I'm actually 17 but it's more conveinent to be a kid for the purposes of this review. The first Norma Jean album, as most of us know, is a legendary piece of art containing manic drums and deep heavy guitar with some of the fiercest vocals ever heard. Doesn't quite crack my top 10 (Orchid, Converge, Botch and Forsetlla Ford have that list secured) but easily my top 25 favorites. Now the second Norma Jean album just sounded like a horrible attempt to rip off Botch. Some parts were good, but overall it just didn't do it for me. I'd give it maybe a 3 and that would be generous. This cd however amazed me. It reminds me of botch with a bit more melody. The vocals range from very deep and brutal to melodic, the lyrics are preety good (not the best but not bad by any means) and there are some very impressive songs on there (my favorites are amnesty please and songs sound much sadder). So in short: Hail the queen, Norma Jean.
