Released via Dissonance Productions last June, Diamond Head was the first album to feature Rasmus Bom Andersen on vocals. Ending an eight-year silence for these New Wave of British Heavy Metal icons, we described the album as “infinitely better than fans could ever have hoped for!”
Formed in 1976, DIAMOND HEAD influenced a slew of early 80s thrash metal bands, in particular Metallica who recorded “Am I Evil” as a b-side to their 1984 “Creeping Death” single and again included it 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).
Dissonance Productions additionally re-issued the band’s Evil Live and Death And Progress albums this year.
