STEVE GRIMMETT'S GRIM REAPER In Seattle: Interview, Performance Footage

Slayed In Oregon has uploaded video footage of STEVE GRIMMETT'S GRIM REAPER, the revamped version of the cult '80s British metal act GRIM REAPER led by singer Steve Grimmett, performing on June 17 in Seattle, Washington. The 30-minute report, which can be seen below, also includes an interview with Grimmett.

STEVE GRIMMETT'S GRIM REAPER played in the USA for the first time since 1987 on April 5 at the Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse festival at Reggies bar in Chicago, Illinois. The band's set consisted of many of the classic GRIM REAPER tunes but also included new tracks from STEVE GRIMMETT'S GRIM REAPER's upcoming studio album, tentatively titled "From Hell", due out before the end of the year. Original GRIM REAPER guitarist Nick Bowcott joined STEVE GRIMMETT'S GRIM REAPER on stage for several songs, marking the first time Steve and Nick have performed together in more than 25 years.

Asked about the progress of the "From Hell" recording sessions, Grimmett told Slayed In Oregon: "We're still recording it, basically, which we're gonna carry on as soon as we get home. We're gonna give it a week and then we get back in the studio and finish it off and get it out. We're gonna do one song tonight from the album, so you'll get to hear what it sounds like and see if we've still got it right. 'Cause, obviously, it's a new band, a totally different band. But Ian [Nash], the guitarist, he's kind of like an old student of Nick's [Bowcott, original GRIM REAPER guitarist]. He plays just like him, and he's a phenomenal guitarist."

STEVE GRIMMETT'S GRIM REAPER is:

Steve Grimmett - Vocals
Ian Nash - Guitar
Chaz Grimaldi - Bass
Paul White - Drums

The back catalog from GRIM REAPER was reissued in Japan in October 2008 via RCA/BMG. "See You in Hell" (1984), "Fear No Evil" (1985) and "Rock You to Hell" (1987) feature JVC K2 24-bit remastering and are available for order at this location.
