BEYOND FEAR To Begin Recording Debut Album Next Week

BEYOND FEAR, the brand new hard-hitting metal outfit founded by current ICED EARTH and former JUDAS PRIEST vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens will be entering an Ohio studio on Monday to begin recording their debut album for SPV Records, tentatively due in early 2006. "We start with drums and bass on [August] 29th then get ready for the short tour [with JON OLIVA'S PAIN and SAVATAGE axeman Chris Caffery], then we go to Mexico for a few shows, then we finish the CD," Owens stated.

BEYOND FEAR's as-yet-untitled debut will be produced by Jim Morris (ICED EARTH, DEATH). Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "I Don't Need This", "And You Will Die", "It Is Me", "Telling Lies", "The Faith", "The Human Race", "Your Time Has Come" and "My Last Words".

Owens began forming BEYOND FEAR last year during breaks in the ICED EARTH touring schedule. The band also features John Comprix (SPAWN, 13 FACES) on lead and rhythm guitar, Dennis Hayes (ex-WINTERS BANE, SEVEN WITCHES) on bass, Dwane Bihary (MISSING SKIN) on rhythm guitar, and drummer Eric Elkins (CRYPTKICKER, ALL YOU FEAR).

BEYOND FEAR's Metal Insurgence Tour 2005, also featuring JON OLIVA'S PAIN (led by SAVATAGE mastermind Jon Oliva) and CHRIS CAFFERY'S FACES (solo project of SAVATAGE guitarist Chris Caffery) will kick off on September 9 in Celeveland, Ohio.
