New TIM 'RIPPER' OWENS Audio Interview Posted Online

A two-hour in-depth radio interview with former JUDAS PRIEST and current ICED EARTH frontman Tim "Ripper" Owens has been posted online at this location.

The interview, which was conducted by Joe Kleon, was broadcast May 1 on Canton's WRQK 106.9 FM.

Downloads available include the entire two hour radio broadcast (sans music) and the whole 60-minute, unedited interview, which contains around 40 minutes of conversation not included in the radio broadcast.

Owens is currently involved in a side-project called BEYOND FEAR, in which he is joined by guitarist John Comprix (13 FACES, SPAWN) and drummer Eric Elkins (ALL YOU FEAR). Elkins hooked up with the singer shortly after Owens' original choice, ICED EARTH/HALFORD's Bobby Jarzombek, was forced to withdraw from the project because he has "too many coals in the fire," according to Owens. Songtitles set to appear on the group's upcoming debut album include "I Don't Need This", "And You Will Die", "It Is Me", "Telling Lies" and "The Faith". A tentative late 2005/early 2006 release through an as-yet-undetermined label is expected.
