CD Review – Spirits of Fire S/T (Frontiers Music Srl)
By: The Hellion
Tim “Ripper” Owens has to be the hardest working vocalist currently in Hard Rock and Metal. In the past he has lent his vocal talents to numerous bands; Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Yngwie Malmsteen and Charred Walls of the Damned amongst others. He has also fronted Beyond Fear and released a very underrated Solo album “Play My Game”.
2019 is shaping up to be another “metal filled” year for “Ripper”. He is currently a part of the “Three Tremors” project (w/Harry “The Tyrant” Conklin & Sean “The Hell Destoyer” Peck). He will also be handling vocals on the “A New Revenge” cd which come out on March 29th. Can’t wait to check this one out!
He is also fronting “Spirits of Fire” which is the project of discussion here today. Frontiers music has been uniting Hard Rock and Metal musicians recently to collaborate and put out some killer music. This project is no exception.
An all-star cast of metal musicians: including Chris Caffery (ex. Savatage on guitars), Steve DiGiorgio (Testament) on bass, and Mark Zonder of Fates Warning on Drums all come together with Ripper to put out an Metal Feast.
If you are a fan of quality vocals, stellar musicianship and top notch heavy metal, you will not be disappointed with this release. It’s all here on this cd. I can’t get enough of this cd!
The Hellion’s pick to click tracks on this cd are: Stand and Fight, Meet your End, and Sprits of Fire.
4 Metal Fists in the air for this one! Make sure to check it out.
