During his break with Iced Earth, Tim Owens is doing some music with Beyond Fear which is the name of his new solo project by the way. Let's say it now, if you're looking for something new and original, I fully doubt that you'll be happy with this album, because for sure this release is extremely classic, but if you want a good old powerful Thrashy Heavy Metal (a la American sauce) by God, don't miss this release!
As you can understand, Tim didn't create something really new with his "own" band. And, I mean that in any case I believe that Ripper wanted to do something outstandingly new and original, he just wanted to play some good old blasting Heavy Metal. And he did it! "Beyon Fear' the first album of the band is an album full of powerful songs. The music is extremely basic on a side with a lot of catchy Heavy guitars riffs but with a lot of good melodies too (like on "Dreams Come True"). On the other hand, it's not Power Metal or classic Heavy a la Judas Priest, here with Beyond Fear, we're in front of a pure American Power/Heavy which means that the riffs aren't so far of Thrash. It's aggressive as hell with fast and enraged tempos and if you like this kind of music, you'll probably enjoy a lot this album.
Also, Tim Owens is just awesome on this release. Of course, the excellent recording helps probably a lot but for sure Tim is doing his best here. His voices, the really high one like the "normal" one, are perfect and it's simply the proof that this guy is one of the best singers of the Metal scene. So ok we have a lot of good things on this album and well its only problem comes from the originality of the music and of the songs, but damn at least, it's extremely solid.
Nothing-new here but "Beyond Fear" is an excellent album of Heavy Metal. All the ones who want some pure aggressive but melodic music will have to check this album. It's a good release and even if I didn't find some cult songs on this album, I'm sure that you'll pass a good moment when you'll listen to it.
