Heavy Alternative / Industrial / Gothic / Thrash Metal
Los Angeles, California, USA
Jimmy P. Brown II is mostly well-known as the lead singer, guitarist, and song writer for thrash metal band Deliverance. However, he has also started several other side projects in addition to recording a solo project (Eraserhead) under his own name.
During one of the break-ups of Deliverance, Brown started to work on a new electronica / industrial / gothic project called Fearful Symmetry. The project name was taken from the poem “The Tyger” by William Blake. Fearful Symmetry has released two albums: This Sad Veil of Tears in 2002 and A Loss of Balance in 2005.
In 2005, Brown formed a band called Jupiter VI along with Brian Khairullah, Trevor Shannon, Mike Reed, and Tiberius Ahan. Jupiter VI provided an outlet for Brown to express his love for glam rock, cited influences like David Bowie, T-Rex, Daniel Amos, Iggy Pop, and others from the genre. Jupiter VI has released two albums: Back From Mars in 2006 and Moveable Walls in 2014.
Brown has often made several references to his influences in all of his musical projects. Besides the early influence of Metallica and Testament on the first Deliverance albums, Queensrÿche has been one of the main influences on his style. In fact, the name “Deliverance” was taken from the title to the third track on Queensrÿche's 1984 album, The Warning. Brown has often honored other musicians who have influenced him, including David Bowie, Pink Floyd, and Terry Scott Taylor.
