Although Beavis and Butt-Head made them into a notorious joke, Grim Reaper was actually capable of turning out some high-quality melodic British metal, even if they took precious little time to become a parody of themselves. The Best of Grim Reaper picks the best tracks from the band's three albums (See You in Hell, Fear No Evil, and Rock You to Hell) and provides a pretty definitive overview of their career, although devotees of the first two albums may find a favorite track or two missing. Still, it's as much as a casual fan could want, and some of it proves that as a melodic power-metal band, Grim Reaper was a bit underrated.
