BEYOND FEAR BIOGRAPHY
Beyond Fear, the band fronted by Tim "Ripper" Owens of Judas Priest fame, plays a rather harsh mix of american power metal and modern heavy metal with powerful riffs and vocals ranging from low growl to ear-piercing falsetto.BEYOND FEAR GENRES
In 2005, the fans of Tim had the chance to offer him a suitable name for his new band on his website, and this way "Beyond Fear" was chosen despite the fact that another metal band with this name already existed in UK.
Besides Tim Owens, "Beyond Fear" includes two former members of Winter's Bane - John Comprix (guitars) and Dennis Hayes (bass), so its sound owes much to the music of this band. The drummer Eric Elkins (ex-Cryptkicker) completes the line-up.
After issuing a demo in 2005, the band finally released a self-titled the following year. The future of band is unclear, because Tim is currently busy recording two concept albums for Iced Earth.
