If you dig relentless break downs and screaming, then *thumbs up*. If not, then don't bother. But the breakdowns are very technical on guitar. And they make an almost 16 minute track seem not long or boring.

One of the best Metalcore albums I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. If you are thinking of getting it - BUY IT. If you hate the band - BUY IT.

Amazing Band

Amazing CD

Not that this album hasn't been reviewed enough before, but it really is very very good. It's long, but doesn't really seem that way because the album flows so well. I recently learned how to play some of the songs on guitar and I was kind of dissapointed how simple they were though. Kinda took some of the magic out of it. Still, it's better than most hardcore albums and no matter how many times I listen to it, the end of Memphis always brings chills down my spine.

Norma Jean is a kick ass band...this band sorta reminds me of Dillinger Escape Plan. Def an off the wall all over the place band. there is absolutely no consistency or beats in this's like a giant mathematical equation. anyone who is into extreme hardcore should get this i promise you won't be dissapointed.

The good songs aren't good, they're mindblowing. Aka -> Tracks 3, 4, 6, 8, and 11. The ok songs are only ok, as in 5 and 7 (most notably). If you like killer breakdowns pick this up. It sounds kind of like a less complex Botch with more breakdowns, and more variety in the vocals. In the end, this has to metalcore - but these guys stack up way better than the rest. Plus they have a new album coming out!!! Oh, and Memphis Shall Be Laid To Waste has the greatest 2 minute moshfest in history ... ohhhhh my.

So violent. I have never heard an hardcore album more agressive than this one. More you listen to, much better it is. Songs 2-3-4 are fabulous! The only one I have a problem with is number 5 (more than 15 minutes long), it is a little repetitive.

Great hardcore, good music, good screams (no singing), good cd.

Give it a try
