Diamond Head by Diamond Head

Album Review

NWOBHM stalwarts return in convincing style

Lars Ulrich regularly admits the almost incalculable debt owed to what he terms, “the two Heads” – Motörhead and Diamond Head.

Many have wrongly assumed that Am I Evil?, one of several DH tunes covered by their US counterparts, is a Metallica original, though it first appeared in 1980 on a hugely influential untitled debut by the Stourbridge-based veterans. Having never got the breaks, Diamond Head drifted in and out of existence ever since. However, the arrival of London-based, Danish-born frontman Rasmus Bom Andersen has sufficiently reinvigorated Diamond Head to overturn a promise from guitarist Brian Tatler – their sole remaining original member – that no further new music would be made.
