Norma Jean

Long time members of the metal scene Norma Jean will be coming to Chico November 22nd. Apparently their name is a reference to Marylin Monroe’s real name. Recently they left their Christian metal label for independent rockers Razor & Tie, who also covers Hatebreed. Formed in 1997, these guys have been rockin’ out for over 15 years now. Whoever said “faith and the devil’s metal don’t mix” never heard Norma Jean. Their album O God, The Aftermath was nominated for a Grammy. This week, Norma Jean will be stopping at LaSalle’s to rip your face off for Jesus. Full of metalcore throwbacks and good wholesome fun, you can bet this show will be heavy, especially with the lineup to back them up.

Also playing are the Oroville heavy hitters A Holy Ghost Revival, alongside Orland’s Every Hand Betrayed, and Chico’s Gigantes. Plus The Greenry, KenMode, and Vanna, all the way from Boston. Seriously, if they came from Massachusetts to play, the least you can do is go downtown to see them. It’s right there. Go support ‘em.

This night is bound to be brutal. Full of endless metal. Shredding guitars, heavy breakdowns, in-your-face guttural vocals, what’s not to like? You’ll be lucky to make it out alive, or even with your guts still intact. Hopefully you signed up for Obamacare, because your eyes will leak out of your ears at this show. That’s how nuts it will be. Seriously, you may be in mortal danger.* You’ve been warned. So go check out Norma Jean, A Holy Ghost Revival, Every Hand Betrayed, Vanna, The Greenry, and KenMode downtown at LaSalle’s. November 22nd. 6pm. $12. Be there.

*The Synthesis is not liable for any bodily harm to come out of you rocking your face off too hard.
