The Reaper launch their EP entitled ‘Mark My Words’ at their all-time favourite venue – Fat Lil’s in Witney. “They might be young but boy can they play! This is quite a bluesy new tune and it kinda reminded me of a heavier and rockier Black Keys” - Johnny Doom, Kerrang Radio 2014 “The Reaper has the potential to become the next biggest thing in the world” – Rock Fanatic Rockcast 2014 “Their heavy chugging guitars would force even the most sceptical metal head to throw up the horns. A seriously tight metal fighting unit that mixes NWOBHM with 80’s thrash and the more accessible side of tech metal” – Nightshift Magazine 2013 “Half our age and twice as talented” – Kier Kemp, Fearless Vampire Killers 2013 “The Absolute Future of British Heavy Metal” – TBFM Radio 2014 “Great walls of sound and an exhilarating stage presence were their hallmarks.
