Grim Reaper – For Demonstration Only Demo (1983)

Band: Grim Reaper Release: For Demonstration Only (Demo) Genre: Traditional Heavy Metal Country: United States Year: 1983 Label: Independent Project Records Note Half of these tracks would later be found on Grim Reaper‘s debut album “See You in Hell”.  Frankly, I was never really a fan of the production quality on that record; it all seemed too stale.  Thankfully, this demo does those very songs (and then some) the justice it deserves.  The definitive version of “See You in Hell” is right here folks!
