First Album of New Material in 8 Years!

Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

Influential and iconic heavy metal band Diamond Head return with their first album of new material in eight years. The self-titled album features an exciting new talent in singer Rasmus Bom Andersen. In 2014 Diamond Head invited London based, Danish-born Ras to join the band. Together they completed a European tour, which included appearances at Hard Rock Hell and Head Bangers Open Air in Germany. The spark of creativity led the band to start working on the new album in January 2015.

Brian Tatler, founder of Diamond Head, said, "When we began talking with Ras about making a new record he said we should write the songs as a band just like Diamond Head did at the beginning of our career. There's no substitute for writing together in the same room, we spark each other off and create something far bigger than we could have done individually. Ras has certainly renewed the energy within the band. I had no interest in doing another record but after working with Ras on the European tour that all suddenly changed. I wanted to make a record with him. He's a confident singer and he's not trying to fill anyone's shoes."

Speaking about the new album, Brian explains, "This new album has an echo of the early albums but I always try to push our music forward somewhere new if possible." Ras adds, "All in all this album was made with the band's first fans foremost in mind from start to finish. We wanted to write songs that would have ties to the best parts of the all the previous albums. We feel we have achieved what we set out to do and we hope everyone will hear and feel the Diamond Head spirit through this new eponymous record."

In general the album lyrics focus on political and environmental themes, specifically warning that our world is in many ways leaning towards self-destruction. The opening and closing songs encapsulate these themes, while the body of the album explores subtopics in more depth, along with songs dealing with lighter subjects that aren't so heavy on the heart.
