About:

Norma Jean is a Christian metalcore band from Douglasville, Georgia, USA, a suburb of Atlanta. Evolving from Luti-Kriss, the original Norma Jean line-up featured everyone from Luti-Kriss, except a different bass player.

In 2002 the band released Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child on Solid State Records and in March of 2005 they released their second album, titled O God, the Aftermath.

Their original vocalist Josh Scogin left the band shortly after the release of Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child, stating that "it was just something that I felt led to do." Original bassist Joshua Doolittle also left the band around the same time as Scogin. Doolittle was replaced by Jake Schultz in 2003.

Scogin left the band and later went on to start The Chariot; he was replaced by Brad Norris for about a year and a half. He was later replaced by Cory Brandan, formerly of the bands Eso-Charis (Disbanded), Living Sacrifice (Disbanded but recently re-formed in the spring of 2008), and Uses Fire (Disbanded), who can be heard on Norma Jean's second album O God the Aftermath and their latest album Redeemer. The new album was recorded with producer Ross Robinson.

The artwork for the band's second album, O God the Aftermath was nominated for Best Recording Package at the Grammy Awards of 2006.
