      Grim Reaper's first album (1980).

      Grim Reaper's debut deserves to be ranked among the elite albums of what was (at the time) the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM), and most of that praise needs to be heaped onto vocalist Steve Grimmett. He alternates between a gruff approach and impossibly high soprano wail with every line, making many of the choruses sound rather ridiculous to modern listeners, but indescribably euphoric to fans of bands such as King Diamond, who Grimett rivals in songs such as 'Dead On Arrival.'

      While the rest of the band keeps up the energy and delivers memorable riffs, especially the leading guitar riff of the title track, it's the vocals that really make this a fantastic experience, especially as the subject matter turns to traditional NWOBHM themes that have their precedent in other bands: the night-stalking antics of the protagonist of 'Wrath of the Ripper' and the galloping battle depiction of 'Run For Your Life' will both be instantly recognisable to classic metal fans.
