Album See You in Hell. See You in Hell Lyrics. See you in Hell! Can I make you an offer You can't refuse I kept my eyes on you Cause I tell you that you lose And you can come with me To a place you'll know so well And I will take you To the very gates of Hell. See you in Hell my friend See you in Hell my friend See you in Hell my friend I'll see you in Hell! Your choice's up then How many sins can be yours At my kingdom final choice Is yours! You can take it Any time that you need Next thing I'll borrow All you've got to do is bleed.
The album gained Grim Reaper a reputation in America, while it wasn’t so well received Europe. The album was praised for Nick Bowcott’s guitar riffs and Steve Grimmett’s vocals. Having eight tracks, Grim Reaper seems to fire on all cylinders for some, and simply drop out early on others. An example of the ladder is, sadly, the title track. While having a catchy riff, the chorus is constantly repeated throughout the entire. Grim Reaper’s debut actually reminds me a lot of Quiet Riot’s breakthrough Metal Health which came out on the same year. Consider See You in Hell like the British version of that albu. inus the great hooks. Actually, the title-track opener is rather amazing, extremely catchy (SEE YOU IN HELL MY FRIEND!!!), worthy of any NWOBHM compilation and full of promise, including that short and sweet guitar solo, the best of the album by far. In fact, that’s the only outstanding tune here.

Grim Reaper became the unlikeliest of over-achievers when their modest, independently released first album, See You in Hell, was unexpectedly picked up by RCA Records for worldwide distribution and proceeded to climb up the American charts. The irony of this is that the band had been kicking around the . scene for years, taking part in, but never really taking off with, the New Wave of British Heavy Metal earlier in the decade. So, when they were finally handed a record deal by tiny start-up Ebony Records, few could have predicted that bigger things lay just around the corner, least of all.
