Jupiter's Incense is a space metal band operating out of Lynchburg, Virginia. The quartet is comprised of Will Gardner (vocals, guitar), Jody Wolford (lead guitar, vocals), Michael Zimmerman (bass, vocals), and Todd Pope (drums).
JI began as the acoustic solo project of guitarist/vocalist Will Gardner in 2006. 2008 saw the release of The Act and Art of Breathing, a collection of acoustic demos and a few more polished songs written between 2006 and 2007. JI blossomed into a live act with Dennis Looze providing live percussion in 2008 and 2009. Beyond Earth was released in June of 2011. With the sophomore effort, Gardner sought a thicker wall of sound to convey a more accurate musical persona. Lead guitarist Jody Wolford joined the band in time to lend his vocal talents to "Corsair". That same summer, the two guitarists welcomed Michael Zimmerman on bass and Todd Pope on drums. Since the completion of the lineup, the band has earned a reputation for "powerful" live performances and has devoted its efforts to writing and recording their 3rd album. This album, dubbed Flight of the Oscillator, is due for release in August of 2014!
