    Norma Jean (Rock): Chris, Daniel, Jake, Scottie, Cory.
    Three years and one lead-singer change after its debut album, Christian metal band Norma Jean returned with O GOD, THE AFTERMATH, a pile-driving slice of boundary-pushing heaviness that finds the Atlanta, Georgia combo's talents undiminished. Replacement throat-shredder Cory Brandon's guttural growls are deeper and even more intense than those of his predecessor, Joshua Scogin. In addition, the new guy adds a welcome bit of melodic singing to the mix. The time between records also seems to have been spent expanding the group's instrumental palette, as many songs feature a more experimental edge. While BLESS THE MARTYR AND KISS THE CHILD's Metallica/Pantera-style speed riffs are maintained (particularly on "Absentimental"), the band finds an increased taste for dissonance and complicated polyrhythms, as evidenced by the jagged start/stops on "Dilemmachine" and the strident lead guitar tritones of "Pretendeavor." A gut-wrenching album by any measure, O GOD, THE AFTERMATH shows that faith can be expressed in a myriad of challenging ways.
