1. Diamond Head – Diamond Head
The first album with vocalist Rasmus Bom Andersen – and their seventh studio album overall – Diamond Head‘s self-titled follow up to 2007’s What’s in Your Head? has been touted as their finest album since the classic Lightning To The Nations.
Diamond Head are gong to have to deliver one hell of a record to rival that particular ground-breaker but with nothing to fear and nothing to lose, the timing looks right for Diamond Head to reclaim their crown as metal kings.
Harnessing a creative buzz long thought lost, Brian Tatler and co. appear reinvigorated and inspired, writing and recording as a unit and taking the Diamond Head sound in a new direction while maintaining links to their glorious past.
The NWOBHM renaissance marches on!
Flick to the next page for the best of the rest of March’s releases….
