The Godfathers of Heavy Metal, Judas Priest, and DIO are undoubtedly the most influential. Two former members of both bands will reunite in Australia for the first time to form Metal Gods, the ultimate homage to Judas Priest and DIO. Metal Gods will include singer Ripper Owens, the lead singer for Judas Priest after Rob Halford left in 1992, and drummer Simon Wright, who was a member of AC/DC from 1983 to 1989 before joining Ronnie James Dio’s band.
Ripper Owens Biography
Timothy S. “Ripper” Owens (born 13 Sept 1967) is a heavy metal singer from the United States who presently sings with KK’s Priest, Spirits of Fire, the Three Tremors, and A New Revenge. He rose to popularity as the lead singer of Judas Priest, followed by Iced Earth. During his stint with the tribute band British Steel, he adopted the moniker “Ripper” from the Judas Priest song “The Ripper.” Owens was confirmed as the leader for KK’s Priest in 2020, a band that included former Judas Priest members KK Downing and Les Binks.
‘Ripper’ Tim Owens is a Grammy-nominated American hard rock vocalist who became the main singer of Judas Priest (1996-2003), then Iced Earth, and Yngwie Malmsteen. Tim’s experience with Judas Priest was partially inspired by the movie “Rockstar,” which starred Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston. Ripper is presently on the road as a solo artist and the lead vocalist for the Charred band Walls of the Damned, including Howard Stern’s Richard Christy. Tim has also formed the Project Rock supergroup, which includes James Kottak (Scorpions), Keri Kelli (Alice Cooper, Slash’s Snakepit, John Waite), Rudy Sarzo (Whitesnake, Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne, Dio), and Teddy Zig Zag (Guns N’ Roses, Carole King).
Performance & Covid-19 Protocol
According to Blabbermouth, the band would perform songs from Ronnie’s Black Sabbath, Rainbow, and classic Dio period catalogs. In October, the band will go on a brief tour of Australia. People who are ill should be kept off the premises. Provide personnel with COVID-19 information and training, including when to be tested, physical separation, mask use, and cleaning. Display admission criteria, such as staying away if you’re sick and maintaining records. Wherever feasible, advocate for a 1.5m physical separation. When at all possible, avoid crowding in certain places.
Consider having plans to deal with any unexpected groups that may arise outside the building. Adopt healthy hand-washing habits. Hand sanitizer should be available at strategic locations across the arena. Ensure the bathrooms have enough hand soap, paper towels, and hand dryers. We hope you enjoy the show !!!!
