Released via Dissonance Productions in 2016, Diamond Head is the first album to feature Easmus Andersen on vocals. Its release ended an eight-year silence for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal icon. Decibel Magazine called Diamond Head “vital and interesting.  All the songs, thanks to (Brian) Tatler’s masterclass riffing, are all rock solid from top to bottom.  These guys deserve their legendary status.” Metal Injection adds, “Tatler has come to the table with some of his all-time best:” Noisey claims simply, “Diamond Head stand the test of time on their new album.”

Formed in 1976, DIAMOND HEAD influenced a slew of early 80s thrash metal bands, in particular Metallica who recorded the bands“Am I Evil”as a b-side to their 1984 Creeping Death single and again included on the band‘s multi-platinum 1998 covers album Garage Inc.  Metallica would record three additional DIAMOND HEAD songs – “Helpless” (Garage Days, 1987), “The Prince” (“One Single b-side, 1989), “It‘s Electric” (Garage Inc., 1998).

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
