The band is also anticipating their upcoming offering, Lightning To The Nations 2020 which will be released on November 20th 2020, via Silver Lining Music.

When Diamond Head first released Lightning To The Nations 40 years ago in 1980, few could have predicted the importance it would carry -and establish- with regards to heavy metal’s new wave and sound. Stacked and packed with riffs, Lightning To The Nations would be one of the prime catalysts for a movement known as the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM). It would also prove the premier template for a band who would become the biggest rock band on the planet, Metallica. But back then, in their humble Stourbridge UK home, Diamond Head had no real idea that the 7 songs they had recorded for that debut album would have such a reverberation.

Lightning To The Nations 2020 will be available as a CD Digipak, Double Vinyl Album housed in Gatefold, digital formats, and special D2C bundles. For pre-orders, go to THIS LOCATION.
