Opeth, Iron Maiden, Nine Inch Nails
I have a lot of favorite artists, varying in styles and it’s impossible to state just one as it’s endless list of talent I admire every day.
Observation, conversation, nature
It is a Forest with a Bit of the Light- a spot in the woods not far from where I live. I named it myself but it’s my to-go place when I seek mental relaxation and peace.
I’ve been honored to share the stage with Mortiis during his North American Tour, as well as with Grendel. I had a pleasure working with Rhys Fulber and have him remix one of my songs, “Flashback.” Mostly though, I feel the greatest achievement is to be a part of the amazing industrial electronic scene – it is a priceless experience.
I love playing at Crucible, Madison WI. I adore their stage, sound and green room plus hospitality and vibes of everyone…I love Reggies rock club in Chicago and really enjoyed playing at The Forge, Joliet. Another amazing place I cannot wait to return to is Club Anything, Milwaukee WI. Owner Todd is a sweetheart and the place has a certain magic that feeds you with very positive energy.
I love Strangers. It is more of a thriller but I like the authenticity of the plot. Psycho is another good one. Anything Hitchcock and David Lynch.
I was 12 and was on my way back from music school ( I studied guitar, piano, and vocal performance). My dad drove the car and we got into an accident. I remember being terrified that he will die…I ended up being the one that almost did- but I don’t remember it as I was already in a coma. The fear of losing my dad and having to tell my mom about it was paralyzing.
I’d love to play at the venue called Dalhalla in Sweden. It is built on the rocks and shaped like an amphitheater. The setting in nature is absolutely magic and so is the sound. It is on my bucket list and as far as an opener/lineup goes, I don’t even know as there are many logistics involved, some of which would probably be out of my control.
Currently, I’m working on releasing the remix of Puppet song done by Adoration Destroyed. Together with Lumbra Records we are filming and putting a dark-themed video for that song. I’m very excited as the remix is amazing!
I want to thank you for your support! You coming out to my live shows and supporting my releases makes what I do possible. I love you! ♥

Imagine haunting melodies, powerful rhythms and beautiful vocals all woven together over poignant lyrics. There you have James Perry. We had a chance to speak with him regarding his newest work, where it all came from and where it’s all going. Here is what he had to say.
1. First of all, love your stuff. The fans at HorrorAddicts love it too. The first I notice in your bio is that you have two projects going on: your solo project and an industrial band called Deathline International. What is the story behind both of these projects? How did they come to be?
Thank you! Well, I haven’t been with Deathline from the very beginning, but I can tell you about how I got involved in the band. About 8 years ago they were preparing to do a short tour, but one member was unable to get the time off work, so my friend Eric Gottesman, who was playing guitar and percussion for them at the time, recommended me. Even though it was a short term thing I took it very seriously and worked very hard to learn the songs and do the best I could. And now, 8 years later, I’m still playing with them! And incidentally, the guy I filled in for is actually back in the band. We’ve been working on new material for some time now and we contributed a track to the “Electronic Saviors” compilation on Metropolis Records. Hopefully we’ll have more new stuff out there soon.
