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 band's “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).
