Possibly the most famous – and almost certainly the most influential – record of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, Diamond Head's Lightning To The Nations aka White Album was recorded and released with little fanfare in 1980, in a run limited to just 1,000 copies. However, the record stood head and shoulders above most of the independently-produced (and much of the major-label) albums being churned out by amateur-hour combos, with short punchy tracks such as "It's Electric" and "Sweet And Innocent" sitting happily alongside lengthier, more convoluted numbers such as "Am I Evil?" and "Sucking My Love." Not only did they have the most formidable vocalist (Sean Harris) of the NWOBHM genre and one of its most innovative and skillful guitarists (Brian Tatler), but their quietly-assured rhythm section (Colin Kimberley, Duncan Scott) was just as important to the bigger picture here. Mastered for vinyl with seven bonus tracks.
