Fear No Evil (CD)
Grim Reaper are a British heavy metal band from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal era. The band was formed in 1979 in Droitwich, England, by guitarist Nick Bowcott. Fear No Evil is the second album released by the British heavy metal band Grim Reaper in 1985 under the RCA label. They were signed to Darryl Johnstons Ebony Records and their debut was See You in Hell. The album, with cover design by Garry Sharpe-Young, was released in 1984 and was distributed worldwide through RCA Records. Grim Reaper soon became readily identifiable with Bowcotts skillful guitar work and singer Steve Grimmetts not-always-quite-on-key banshee screams. Their successful world tour included a support shot at Texxas Jam playing to over 20,000 people. Their follow-up, 1985s Fear No Evil showed improvement on the production front and also enjoyed moderate success in both the U.S. and Europe. Legal battles with Ebony delayed the release of the bands third album Rock You to Hell by almost 2 years. The album was released directly through RCA in 1987, again with a Garry Sharpe-Young cover design. However, by this time Grim Reapers melodic power metal sound had fallen out of favor as much of the metal market moved toward heavier fare like Thrash metal and Speed metal. Even the major label distribution and popular video for the title track could not save the band. With production on their fourth album (reportedly to be called Nothing Whatsoever to do with Hell) about to start, another round of legal action from Ebony effectively dealt the death blow to Grim Reaper.
