Former JUDAS PRIEST and current ICED EARTH frontman Tim "Ripper" Owens is currently shopping a five-song CD from his solo project, tentatively dubbed BEYOND FEAR. Songs featured on the CD are as follows:

01. I Don't Need This
02. And You Will Die
03. It Is Me
04. Telling Lies
05. The Faith

BLABBERMOUTH.NET, who had an opportunity to hear the recording,says it boasts a thick, heavy riffing style and extremely powerful vocals from Owens. Traces of JUDAS PRIEST, PANTERA and BLACK SABBATH are all present along with a healthy dose of double-bass drumming, which adds a modern edge to what is essentially a traditional metal approach.

As previously reported, Owens will be joined on his upcoming solo album by guitarist John Comprix (13 FACES, SPAWN) and an as-yet-undetermined drummer (original choice ICED EARTH's Bobby Jarzombek recently decided against becoming involved with the project). A tentative late 2005/early 2006 release is expected.
