GRIM REAPER’s debut album, “See You In Hell”, was released in 1984 and was distributed worldwide through RCA. A successful world tour in support of the album included an appearance at Texxas Jam in front of over 20,000 people. The band’s 1985 follow-up, “Fear No Evil”, showed improvement on the production front and also enjoyed moderate success in both the United States and Europe.
Ebony Records delayed the release of the band’s third album, “Rock You to Hell”, by almost two years. The LP eventually arrived directly through RCA in 1987.
The back catalog from GRIM REAPER was reissued in Japan in October 2008 via RCA/BMG.
