Norma Jean is a metalcore/ mathcore band from Douglasville, Georgia, USA- a suburb of Atlanta. They were originally known as Luti-Kriss. They released two albums: an EP (titled 5ep) in 2000, and a full-length release, Throwing Myself on March 13, 2001. After the release of Throwing Myself, the band changed their name to Norma Jean to avoid confusion with rapper Ludacris. Their original vocalist, Josh Scogin, left the band right after the release of Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child and went on to start The Chariot.
