5.0 out of 5 stars Night Of The Vampire 7 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD
Tired of Iron Maiden or other NWOBHM bands that are well known? Well then time to listen to this Masterpiece Grim Reaper's 1987 Album Rock You To Hell, this album has heavy riffs, fast drumming and wailing Vocals. If your a fan of Heavy Metal and want more bands to listen to this should definately be apart of your Metal Collection if not then you are so missing out on a Metal Masterpiece

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll wish that you love heavy metal 5 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Perfect album, the band is great and this is definitely the best album, even though all the three are awsome.
If you search a good reason why to love heavy metal, this is the answer, all the 37 minutes of the album contains excellent classic songs, great riffs and solos, but the most important thing is the vocals of Steve Grimmett. I adore his voice, i think he is one of the best NWOBHM vocalists, he makes the whole experience of the album look good.
The album can be played on loop, from the first track, the title track, you will clinch your fists while reading the lyrics, play air guitar, bang your head through the choruses, stare at the amazing artwork, eat the jewel case or the vinyl case - for me it is the real ultimate heavy metal experience! That why i like heavy metal.
All the songs are great, but the top are: 'Rock You to Hell', 'When Heaven Comes Down', 'You'll Wish..' and 'Lust for Freedom'.
Even the final track gives you a taste for more with the track 'I Want More', because that's what you gonna say after you'll quick end the album. So sad that is the last album of the band, but on the other hand, it emphasize the uniqeness of the album.
Any metal fan and any rock fan should buy it and own it, a must have album, any one who love Iron Maiden, Dio, Angel Witch, Diamond Head and other british heavy metal bands must worship it.
I really enjoyed to review this album, because classic albums must be reviewed for the other fans who missed them. Heavy metal for life! \m/

5.0 out of 5 stars ROCK YOU TO HELL 25 July 2006
By E_Vilco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This just kicks. If there is one heavy metal band that i'd want to get back together. THIS IS THAT BAND!!!! The riffs, the vocals, the bass, the drums. THINK MAN! what more could you want. If you are a true metal head you would already have this in your collection. If not, Then you must ask your self. AM I A METAL HEAD? DO I LOVE DRIVING RYTHUMS AND IN YOUR FACE VOCALS? if you said yes to eather of these. THEN BUY THE CD. The group did not last long, But there music will last a life time and then some. My Kids like this as well as I do. You will not be disapointed.

Wow! I have to get this CD. What a blast from the past. I remember having "Rock You to Hell" on cassette in 1988 and wearing it out. Couldn't get enough. Some memories disappoint, but not this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars another killer album from Grim Reaper, a band who sadly never achieved what they should have... 30 Mar 2012
By trebe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The English heavy metal band Grim Reaper were extremely talented, but unfortunately they did not get the opportunity to achieve the success the truly deserved, primarily due to bad luck, and legal problems with their record label. The group got off to a great start, having some success with their debut album See You In Hell (1984). Their follow up record Fear No Evil (1985), showed great improvement in production, songwriting, and musicianship, as the band continued to incorporate dark themes, and horror based concepts into their music.

Grim Reaper featured Steve Grimmett on vocals, guitarist Nick Bowcott, Dave Wanklin playing bass, and drummer Marc Simon. Grimmett's powerful vocals, had great range on the high end, and together with Nick Bowcott's aggressive guitar, helped to characterize the band's heavy driving sound. Bowcott's fluid and quirky playing style masterfully incorporated all the tricks common in the 80's, including tapping, harmonics, vibrato, and tremelo bar.

Like their previous albums, Rock You To Hell (1987) features a colorful depiction of the Grim Reaper with his scythe. Musically, the band continues in much the same direction as Fear No Evil, with solid production that puts the emphasis on the vocals and guitar. There are no ballads to be found, as the songs are mostly fast paced aggressive numbers, with a driving beat.

The opening track, "Rock You To Hell" sets the tone for the album, with a edgy killer riff, and wild guitar from Nick Bowcott, it is one of the band's greatest compositions. "When Heaven Comes Down" is another tremendous fast-paced rocker. "Night Of The Vampire" is an awesome song, that features some scary atmospheric guitar, and Grimmett's screeching vocals.

Reaper comes out swinging on "Rock Me `Till I Die", with Steve Grimmett hitting the high notes. Marc Simon is an incredible drummer, and never more so than on this track, which also features more evil sounds from Nick Bowcott's axe. "Lust For Freedom" might be a slower tune, but it hits like a sledgehammer, and Bowcott delivers another unpredictable winding solo. "You'll Wish You Were Never Born" features a repetitive driving rhythm that the band seems to favor in many of their songs, but they come up with an interesting bridge in the middle. for a nice change of pace. Steve Grimmett's singing is fantastic throughout the album, but seems especially inspired on "I Want More".

Legal matters eventually led to the demise of Grim Reaper in the late 80's, as this extremely talented band, was sadly never able to achieve the fame and acclaim they should have. Musically, they really had at all, a great singer, cutting edge guitar playing, a powerful rhythm section, and songwriting talent which was clearly improving with each album. With a little luck, and decent support from a record label, Grim Reaper probably could have been huge.

Rock You To Hell has become quite pricey, but the band's first two releases are available on a single CD (See You in Hell / Fear No Evil). In 2006, Steve Grimmett reformed the band, although without any of the original members. So another Grim Reaper album might be possible someday.
