Former JUDAS PRIEST/current ICED EARTH vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens has launched his official web site at [a href=\'http://TimRipperOwens.com\' target=\'_blank\']TimRipperOwens.com[/a]. Owens has just completed work on his first solo demo recording with a view towards landing a record deal. "In the meantime I've got a few more killer tracks that aren't on the demo, and I think they are the best yet, so it's going real good!" Tim told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "After I sign a deal, I will lock myself in the studio and get it done (with producer Jim Morris). "On guitars will be John Comprix (13 FACES, SPAWN)," Owens continued. "Not sure about drums, but I hope it's either Bobby [Jarzombek] from ICED EARTH or Jeff Plate from TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA/SAVATAGE! Maybe a few guests thrown in... I would love to get Scott Ian [ANTHRAX] on a track or two! "The project doesn't have a name yet... Some [suggested] RIP, but I thought I would get the fans to come up with something! The influence of the music would lean toward... PRIEST/SABBATH/PANTERA without the real heavy vocals!"
