Timothy S. "Ripper" Owens (born on September 13, 1967) is an American heavy metal singer who currently performs with Beyond Fear, Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force and Charred Walls of the Damned. He first gained attention as the lead singer of Judas Priest, and then Iced Earth. He took the nickname "Ripper" from the Judas Priest song " The Ripper" during his time in the tribute band "British Steel". Like Priest singer Rob Halford before him, Owens is known for his powerful wide vocal range and high pitched screams.
