Bless the Martyr is overrated. Something more like O' God would please me. I think the band's only real problem is the repetitiveness. Makes albums hard to listen to.

I used to be a pretty big Norma Jean fan. :D Wow good times.

I actually thought Redeemer was pretty good.

Kinda stoked for this. Band's earlier stuff pretty good. People just write them off as another Botch copy (which is true to an extent on O'God, nothing else they made couldn't be related as much to Botch), doesn't really mean it sucks. Botch=awesome, Botch copy=pretty good.

Norma Jean is pretty fucking awful actually. Let's make a bunch of songs that sound the same and feature at least 4 breakdowns per song, shall we?

In reference to the breakdowns, they have 'em sure. But they're so smooth you really don't notice the change in momentum.

Just another ignorant person making ignorant judgements about a band.

Norma Jean don't play that many breakdowns.. and when they do, they don't CHUGGA CHUGGA like other bands. They're a really good band that simply could do better if they didn't repeat themselves so much (such as those one-line repeats over and over).

More like Norma Jun. Band went from generic metalcore to botch clone to underoath jr. Will probably stay on the same path.

Please let this be better than Anti-Mother. I'd like something more akin to Redeemer.

i believe underoath went Norma @the palaceofwisdom but I could be wrong. Redeemer came before define the great line which was underoath's turn-around album and every one of their cds before that was almost what the Chariot is now, just better put together in some areas. I don't like these bands at all really and am neutral, but I do have to say they started the whole "mainstream grind flannel touting scene kid" thing that pushed me away so much.
They were the stylists of a new generation and just started to get washed up while at the same time experimenting with their new found popularity.
I am interested, though, to see what happens next.

ANYWAYS, Anti-Mother didn't do it for me. Really like Redeemer and O God and love Bless the Martyr. Here's to hoping!

O'God The Aftermath was sooo fucking good, Bless The Martyr was decent, Redeemer was pree fun and Anti Mother was hella lame.

Hoping to hear another Disconnecktie.

Well, here's a song from the upcoming album. The song is called "Kill More Presidents" (lawl at attempt to sound hardcore). I guess this is as good an indication as any of what the record will be like.

I'd be ridiculously happy with O' God or Bless The Martyr Part 2. Sadly, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be similar to the Anti-Mother from the one leaked song that I heard.

Well that album was partly influenced by Bless the Martyr, it wouldn't be as good as it turned out without it.

Something in the vein of Redeemer, please? I mean as good as that album...
O' God is great but it's a blatant Botch rip off, they won't ever sound like BTMAKTC again and The Anti Mother was just shit.

Tbh being a clone of a band as well respected as Botch is always going to get you shit. But at least they wanted to copy somthing more original than end up as another Hatebreed/throwdown clone. They do have some pretty sweet songs but as eternium said repetitiveness really is the killer of the enjoyment of there albums.

It's not unfair, it's true they made really lame music. The only time they didn't was when they stole from another band.

the vocalist sounds an awful lot like Josh Scogin on that leaked song except for the clean vocals, the anti mother wasnt that bad but it wasnt good at all, it was just average and BTMAKTC doesnt tickles my fancy at all

fromAZtoZAO, The Anti Mother was a mess. The entire record sounds like they have no idea what they're doing, what they're trying to write. The production was also very very weird....in a bad way.
