Former JUDAS PRIEST Singer 'RIPPER' OWENS Names Solo Project

Former JUDAS PRIEST and current ICED EARTH frontman Tim "Ripper" Owens has selected BEYOND FEAR as the name of his new solo project. Owens, who stresses that he is still a full-fledged member of ICED EARTH, has completed work on his first solo demo recording with a view towards landing a record deal. Joining the singer on his upcoming solo album will be guitarist John Comprix (13 FACES, SPAWN), and Bobby Jarzombek from ICED EARTH on drums. "The influence of the music [will] lean toward... PRIEST / SABBATH / PANTERA without the real heavy vocals!" Owens previously told BLABBERMOUTH.NET.
