Review: Norma Jean – Wrongdoers

Rated:

3.5/5

Norma Jean proved they had a sense of humor when they released the lyric video for six-second joke song “Ahh! Shark Bite! Ahh!” in the lead-up to this album. But when it comes to the substance of its sixth full-length, the band isn’t goofing around. Wrongdoers may not be groundbreaking, but it’s certainly up to snuff with Norma Jean’s past output of breakdown-heavy and somewhat-chaotic metalcore. Vocalist Cory Brandan Putman said Wrongdoers would have an “old-school classic Norma Jean nastiness” to it, and impressively, the record is exactly as advertised, despite three new members entering the lineup. Wrong has rarely sounded so right. SAMMI CHICHESTER
