TIM ‘RIPPER’ OWENS Performs JUDAS PRIEST Classic With PRIMAL FEAR

September 24th, 2010

Powerhouse American vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) joined German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR on stage on September 18, 2010 at Progresja in Warsaw, Poland to perform the JUDAS PRIEST classic “Metal Gods”.

Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed below.

Owens is being backed by the following musicians during his current European tour:

* Andy Boss (PAUL DI’ANNO, ABSOLUTE STEEL) – Guitar

* Jon Vegard (PAUL DI’ANNO) – Guitar

* Are Gogstad (PAUL DI’ANNO, QUEENSTREET, ABSOLUTE STEEL) – Bass

* Rick Hagan (PAUL DI’ANNO, QUEENSTREET, ABSOLUTE STEEL, 21ST CENTURY ROX) – Drums

“Play My Game”, the first solo album from Owens, landed at position No. 66 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The CD was released via SPV/Steamhammer. The offering consists of around a dozen brand-new tracks that Owens composed himself or together with renowned friends, such as Bob Kulick, Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA), Mike Callahan (ex-EARSHOT) and John Comprix (BEYOND FEAR, RINGWORM).

PRIMAL FEAR recently released a new live DVD, “16.6 – All Over The World” (recorded in various locations between September and November 2009), and a live CD, aptly titled “Live In The USA”. Frontiers Records issued the two products separately and as a limited-edition combo on June 22 in the USA. The DVD is filled with an abundance of extra materials, such as an entire bootleg section with funny moments on the road, bootleg footage from various festival appearances and other concerts, all of PRIMAL FEAR’s most recent promotional videos, plus the making-of footage for “16.6” and a brand new interview section about the past, present and future of PRIMAL FEAR.

The legendary New York Speed/Thrash Metal patrol Anthrax visited to Helsinki, Finland 21st of April on their “Cursed Earth” Euro-tour, bringing along Beyond Fear with them; a new band fronting no less than Tim “Ripper” Owens (ex-Winters Bane, ex-Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Brainicide). As most of you should be aware of the band by now, the band has been built around 5 experienced musicians off which two members, John Comprix on guitar and Dennis Hayes on bass, have also won their spurs in Winters Bane whereas Dwane Bihary (on rhythm guitar) has previously played in Missing Skin and Eric Elkins (on drums) destroyed his drumkit in such line-ups as Cyptkicker and All You Fear. 

As Beyond Fear´s self-titled debut album has already been impressing a large number of metal fans all around the world with its straight-forward, heavy, somewhat Priest-tinged yet honest modern sounding Heavy Metal approach, it became way too tempting to avoid meeting Mr. “Ripper” here in Helsinki, and ask him about the ground reasons for forming Beyond Fear. And that´s what we did eventually; sat down comfortably at the dressing room of the band and started inquiring a fair number of things about the band in sheer excitement.

Here´s the whole conversation with Tim “Ripper” Owens in its entire lenght yet uncencosed form in which we couldn´t completely avoid asking about Priest, Iced Earth or Winters Bane either.
