Norma Jean Debut New Song “[Mind Over Mind]”
Well Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child! Just two days after announcing their new album, All Hail, Norma Jean have now released the first single from that album, “[Mind Over Mind].” It’s built around a chunky, elastic riff that would not have sounded out of place on Meshuggah’s Koloss, and which will almost certainly get stuck in your head after one listen. It sounds kinda like a robot repeatedly tripping over its own shoelaces (don’t ask me why a robot is wearing shoes). For some bands, that riff would only appear during the breakdown, but “[Mind Over Mind]” has a separate breakdown, too.
The results are pretty goddamn moshtastic. If you weren’t excited for All Hail before, you will be now!
Check out “[Mind Over Mind]” below. All Hail comes out October 25 via Solid State. Pre-order it here.
