Funnily enough, however, while 'Beyond Fear' is a pretty decent effort, it's almost laughable how instantly recognizable the Judas Priest influence is. Owens no doubt wears his influences on his sleeve, and in fairness, there's nothing wrong with that if the music is good. Backed by some tight musicianship and a nice beefy sound, 'Beyond Fear' will probably never be anyone's favourite album, but there's definitely something of merit here. You Will Die', 'Save Me', 'I Don't Need This' and 'Coming At You' are all riffs-galore that deserve a listen, and show that even if Tim Owens is a Halford clone, then he's certainly one of the better ones.

Beyond Fear, the band fronted by Tim "Ripper" Owens of Judas Priest and Iced Earth 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.
Although adamant that Beyond Fear is not just a solo project (he enlists the aid of longtime musician pals), it's Owens' voice that is the main focus throughout Beyond Fear. Expectedly, the material is akin to vintage '80s-era thrash metal; in fact, the album-opening "Scream Machine" sounds quite similar to veteran thrash 'n' scream metallists Overkill.
