Eradication Open Air – The New Crown, Merthyr Tydfil, Wales – 20th August to 21st August 2016
A plethora of UK extreme metal acts are set to perform at the end of August but it’s the headliners – however ill-fitting considering the extreme nature of the majority of the lineup – that demand to be seen and that’s NWOBHM kings, Diamond Head.
With a stunning new self-titled album in the bag and a back catalogue that features some of the finest tracks in heavy metal history – “Am I Evil”, Lightning To The Nations, It’s Electric,”In the Heat of the Night”, “To the Devil His Due” anyone? – Diamond Head are worthy headliners and are sure to remind the new breed just who invented this shit in the first place.
Riffs….come see the guys who invented ’em!
