DIAMONDS ARE FOR EVER

DIAMOND HEAD ARE BACK! BACK WITH THEIR FIRST ALBUM IN ALMOST A DECADE, A NEW FRONTMAN AND ENOUGH NWOBHM RIFFS TO FILL A STADIUM. AND UNSURPRISINGLY GUITARIST AND FOUNDER BRIAN TATLER HAS A LOT TO SAY…

We may not be discussing specific numbers and figures, but at least Brian Tatler is being honest and forthright. You know Brian, or you should at least recognise his name. He’s the guitarist who formed Diamond Head back in 1976 and, alongside original vocalist, Sean Harris, co-wrote a handful of songs you’re probably really familiar with: ‘Am I Evil?’, ‘The Prince’, ‘It’s Electric’ and ‘Helpless’ and the reason you’re probably really familiar with those tunes falls squarely at the feet of a bunch going by the handle of Metallica. Chances are that anyone under the age of 45 who’s telling you they weren’t introduced to Diamond Head via Metallica is a lying sack of shit. And y’know who isn’t a lying sack of shit? Brian Tatler, as he expresses continued appreciation for Ulrich, Hetfield and company’s decision to pull a few faves out of their record collection and what that has done and provided for him.

About Terrorizer Magazine

There are certain times in history that will always remain special in your heart throughout your life. People often talk about the first time they have seen a certain band and I am no exception. It’s been a blessing to have had the opportunity to see so many bands in my life and, if pushed, I could recount many. After a number of false starts to actually see Neurosis in a live setting, I remember finally getting the chance to see them for the first time at Dudley JB’s with Today Is The Day (featuring Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor, who would later form Mastodon) and Voivod (with Eric Forrest). The hall was cavernous, certainly not overly busy in terms of punters, and yet the sonics that blasted through the speakers that night could not have sounded any more apocalyptic. Truly jawdropping and, frankly, life-changing. I know I am not the only one who has experienced similar and for that reason, it is a pleasure to celebrate Neurosis’ 30th anniversary with a cover feature that covers the band’s continuing career. José Carlos Santos has excelled himself as always in producing a fantastic article with Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till and I truly hope you love reading it. Elsewhere it’s always a pleasure to chat to Karl Willetts from Bolt Thrower and now of his new band Memoriam – please flick to the news pages to read about the new band now! And of course, plenty of other cool-as-fuck bands to read about and enjoy. See you next month! Adios DARREN SADLER
