"f you had ever written the band off or traded them in for a younger model, this is the record that will force you to reconsider and repent..."
Norma Jean broke the doors down a decade ago with ‘Bless The Martyr And Kiss The Child’, a record that changed lives, genres and entire musical ecosystems. Many years and many members later, ‘Wrongdoers’ proves that the band can still get abrasive with the best of them. Album six does not recapture the denigrated filth of Norma Jean’s most celebrated works, but it still fits and shakes with terrifying force. If you had ever written the band off or traded them in for a younger model, this is the record that will force you to reconsider and repent. If anything age has revitalised Norma Jean, and on ‘Wrongdoers’ it shows.
