GRIM REAPER – See You In Hell [Japan SHM-CD] (2022) HQ / *Exclusive*

We were about to post the just released Japanese reissue on SHM-CD of GRIM REAPER‘s debut album, 1983’s “See You In Hell“, and then read the sad news: the band’s frontman Steve Grimmett died suddenly & unexpectedly yesterday, aged 62. This serves as fitting tribute to ‘the man with the piercing head voice’ (RIP).
GRIM REAPER’s story begins in 1979 after successfully fighting off hundreds of bands in a local Battle Of The Bands competition. This win, combined with an already sizeable following, aroused the interest of Ebony Records. Signing with the small U.K. label, GRIM REAPER released three albums in rapid succession to international acclaim. Due to legal turmoil with Ebony, the original GRIM REAPER would disband in 1988. Grimmett would go on to record with ONSLAUGHT, LIONSHEART and more recently THE SANITY DAYS. His renowned vocal range remains one of metal’s most identifiable from the NWoBHM era.
“See You In Hell” deserved this pristine SHM-CD: over the years there has been poor sounding reissues. Additionally, songs like ‘The Show Must Go On’ were cut at the end. Here we find the original versions, plus a the original LP front/back artwork replica.
