Deliverance announce release date for FINAL album!

In 1985, in a small damp garage in the midst of middle class housing in Los Angeles, CA. three musicians met up with a 15 year old singer/guitar player who placed an ad in the local Recycler Newspaper classifieds for “band wanted”. Little did they know that this was the beginning of what would become one of the most revered and celebrated musical entities, known to the metal world as Deliverance!

After only a few months of rehearsing, Deliverance began their march on the LA Club Scene. Playing and becoming regulars to such venues as The Waters Club, The Whiskey a Go Go, The Troubadour, The Country Club and The Oasis the group was becoming well known amongst their peers and garnering a rather large fan base in a short time.

After the release of their four song demo, Greetings of Death in 1987, the band became a nationally known act as the now infamous demo was receiving ranting reviews, and orders were coming in from all over the United States, and even South America and stretching into Canada. This of course led to invites to play shows states-wide, and also playing festivals in Southern and Northern California.

Deliverance’s unique sound of combining thrash/speed metal with melodic vocals was received well with the media and fans alike. This led to “D” being asked to contribute (2) songs to a compilation album aptly titled “California Metal” on Regency Records. Alongside other giants in the Christian Metal world such as Barren Cross, Guardian, Neon Cross and others, “D” was asked to provide a more melodic type of track as the brutal sound of thrash made the Pakaderm Production Team of John and Dino Elefante a little uncomfortable.

 “D” was of course up to the task and had the perfect song to balance out the edge of thrash with the song A Space Called You. But, as band leader Jimmy P. Brown II insisted, there would need to be an absolute representation of the bands live performance. This would be the world’s first national release of a Christian speed metal track with the song Attack! Unsure of how this new sound would be received by the world of CCM, the song was nicely hidden toward the end of the album. Much to the surprise of the label and production team, Deliverance was voted the most popular band of the entire release! The Big “D” (as the fans began to call them) were now on the path to become what CCM Magazine would call them years later, “The Biggest Band in CCM since Stryper”…

Four years after their beginning, the world was now ready to get what they’d been waiting for, the release of their self entitled debut full length LP. With the release of this album, “D” began their career as a touring band on the road. They now were taking their LA brand of speed metal to the world! The album received rave reviews and “D” has the esteemed honor to hold the Number 45 spot on Metal Hammer’s list of the Top 50 Thrash Albums of All Time! This list contains many of their musical peers such as Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Sacred Reich and many others. Deliverance is the only metal band on this list with a Christian worldview being hailed as a contemporary among these Thrash Legends!

Through many years and many changes, Deliverance has stood the test of time with stylistic, personnel, and the constant flood of change in the music scene. (9) Studio Releases and (2) live albums, a healthy share of airtime on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball with their ground breaking video Weapons of our Warfare, 7 National and International Tours, “D” continues to be a welcomed guest to this huge party we call “The Metal Music Scene”!

Now, 28 years later, 2013 will see the release of The Big “D”’s 10th and Final Studio Release. Hear What I Say is a surprising fresh blend of the entire “D” musical repertoire rolled into one record. With (9) originals and (2) surprise cover songs, this release will once again show the world that Jimmy P. Brown II has not missed one step with his 4 man army! Always ready to deliver, he assembled a true cast of players for this final venture that were up to the task!

Michael Phillips – of Deliverance, Fasedown and Join the Dead fame on Lead and Rhythm Guitar

Manny Morales – of Deliverance fame on the 5 String Bass

And Jayson Sherlock – of Mortification, Paramecium, Horde and Revulsed fame on Drums

Jimmy P. Brown II says:

“I wanted to put the final chapter to this book called “Deliverance” in its proper prospective! There have been ups and downs, but in the end it was a magnificent journey with all the band members over the years, and more importantly our fans! This album is for them, to say goodbye in true “D” fashion! I am ever grateful to all the supporters throughout the years, but “D” has run its course. I want her to rest and go out with a nice beautiful and loud bang! To all our fans, supporters, and ALL of my former band-mates, it was a wonderful roller coaster ride, scary, exciting, nauseating, thrilling, terrifying, but in the end it was fun! Lives were touched, people found what they needed at the time, and now, the next journey will begin…”

3 Frogz Records/Roxx Records are very pleased to announce the release of the final offering from “Deliverance” entitled ‘Hear What I Say!’ September 3, 2013 the world will get what they have been waiting for the brand new and final album from “Deliverance”.
