Norma Jean in Charlotte
Georgia band Norma Jean has had its revolving cast of characters over the last 15 or so years. Guitarist Chris Day remains the only original member and from the early rap-metal approach to evolving into a metalcore outfit, Norma Jean comes loaded with the requisite growling vocalist and dual guitar attack. They are tagged as a Christian alt-metal band, but they explore plenty of darker sides of things in their lyrics while pounding out a blend of hard, inventive and, refreshingly, emotive songs. Their latest album, last year’s Wrongdoers, was written and recorded after replacing three band members, but it sounds damn cohesive, as if the new boys in the band have been playing together for years. They are playing at Milestone in Charlotte on March 3, 2014. Also on the bill are Spoken and SkinKage. www.themilestoneclub.com
