Head's Up! 7/12/17

Last night the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement returned to the O2 Academy in Islington. Headliners Diamond Head, recognised as one of the original NWOBHM bands back in the 1970’s, soon gained a formidable reputation for their thunderous and energetic festival performances. However, they remained an underground band, never achieving the record sales that their live shows warranted, but many NWOBHM bands who did achieve greater chart success, notably Metallica and Megadeath, were quick to name Diamond Head as a vital early influence. Only one member of the original line-up survives: lead guitarist Brian Tatler, however, when they finally appeared on stage they did not disappoint, delivering a set of classic Rock full of blistering riffs, compelling choruses and energetic vocals. With a review, more photos and hopefully an audio interview to come, check out today's Video Of The Day.
