"Perhaps best known for being so thoroughly ridiculed on MTV's Beavis and Butthead (a fate they share with Winger), New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) latecomers Grim Reaper was completely and unabashedly "metal" in a way few other bands could touch. Their lyrics were cheesy, their performances were melodramatic, and they never quite looked cool enough, but you can look past their Spinal Tappishness because Steve Grimmett and company were just...so...metal.
This nifty 2-on-1 contains the band's first two albums - 1983's See You in Hell and 1985's Fear No Evil - in their entirety. That's a whopping 17 servings of pure metal cheese, including metal anthems See You in Hell, Dead on Arrival, Never Coming Back, and Fear No Evil. There isn't any bonus material, but the sound quality is pretty impressive, especially considering the rough quality of the original recordings.
Sadly, the band's 1987 album Rock You to Hell is not as easy to track down. Hopefully one of the reissue labels (Majestic, are you listening?) will dust that album off and get it back in circulation. How else are we going to hear the sublime Suck It and See?
You can try to avoid it, and you can attempt to write them off as too cheesy, but sooner or later everyone needs to have some Grim Reaper in their metal collection. Sure, the clerk at the record store may snicker, and you'll probably have to hide the album from any potential romantic interests, but what do they know about the glory of metal anyway?
Not Bad But Kind of Generic

"I've always had a fascination for Grim Reaper. The imagery and album art alone was enough to attract me to their third album. But more on that later.
This is a combination of their first two albums and I'll have to admit, their best two. The songs are okay with a few memorable tracks, but they are definitely cliché ridden and generic. Steve Grimmet's vocals are okay when he doesn't get into those long annoying high pitched wails. I can't say a thing about Nick Bowcott's guitar playing as it rocks. However, I kind of wish he would have done more jamming and solos.
I also have their third album and after listening to it several times, I could not remember a thing about it. At least I can remember a few songs off this CD!
Overall, this is not bad stuff, it just does not blow me away and will probably not blow most of you away either. Beavis and Butthead hated them but I like them well enough that I will not bury this CD and forget about it. It is a double dose of generic clichéd rock, but who cares? You could do a lot worse. Recommended.
See You In Hell My Friends

"Grim Reaper are known for campy horror lyric, a singer who could scream so only Rob Halford's dog could hear, and repetitious lyrics. People complain about those qualities, but thats what makes them so great. This disc contains their first two albums, so its a bargain already. Now if you make those two albums a great blitz of heavy metal, that even better. Even though these song rock, they all have the same standout feature: the excellent guitar work of Nick Bowcott. Bowcott could shred like no one's business. Every song on here rocks. My personal favorites are "Wrath of the Ripper", "Fear No Evil", and the infamous "See You In Hell". I recommend this for any 80s metal fan, and especially fans of Judas Priest. If you like these albums, I suggest you pick up their third and last album, Rock You To Hell."
