We’re halfway through September 2016 and its already obvious that this a month jam-packed with high profile releases, underground must-have’s and everything in between….covering all of metal’s glorious sub-genre’s in the process.
With that in mind, it felt right to highlight those 5 metal albums you simply can’t ignore in September 2016 and give a nod to the best of the rest (there’s a lot of ’em). Your wallet’s gonna feel considerably lighter by the end of the month!
5. Steve Grimmett’s Grim Reaper – Walking In The Shadows
Nearly 30 years since NWOBHM legends Grim Reaper released their last album (1987’s Rock You To Hell) and Steve Grimmett and his hired hands are back to play real heavy metal!
September 23rd sees the release of Walking In The Shadows and you can expect a classic NWOBHM sound welded to the mighty lungs of Steve Grimmett, one of the defining voices of the genre.
With NWOBHM bands currently riding high on a critical wave of nostalgic success it’s high time Grim Reaper joined the likes of Diamond Head, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Holocaust etc in releasing new material and Walking In The Shadows looks set to be a must-hear for NWOBHM enthusiasts and newcomers alike!
A huge US tour will follow the release of Walking In The Shadows (including a few dates in the UK) as Grim Reaper scythe their way through the ranks of true NWOBHM
