Released via Dissonance Productions last June, Diamond Head is the first album to feature Rasmus Andersen on vocals. Its release ended an eight-year silence for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal icon.
Formed in 1976, DIAMOND HEAD influenced a slew of the early 80s thrash metal bands, in particular, Metallica who recorded the bands“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).
Dissonance Productions additionally re-issued the band’s ‘Evil Live’ and ‘Death And Progress’ albums this year.
