Norma Jean Vocalist Cory Brandan on The MetalSucks Podcast #311
This week we chat with Cory Brandan of Norma Jean! We discuss his return to Norma Jean after releasing the Hundred Suns project, having the lifer mentality when it comes to the art form of metal, the difficult writing process for Norma Jean’s new album, All Hail, how the loss of a fan inspired the creation of many songs, going through the stages of grief while writing, comparing the lessons learned from art to those learned from history, the essence of a “fictional reality,” and much more.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn also go through and break down the completion of The MetalSucks 25 Best Metal Albums of 2010 – 2019 poll, talk about the album we feel should never have made the list, and share our overall thoughts on each selection.
Songs: Norma Jean “Safety Last” and “Landslide Defeater,” “Black Gold” by Infected Rain
