Diamond Head – Unveil "The Coffin Train"

here. Formed in 1976 under the riff-rolling leadership of guitarist Brian Tatler, DIAMOND HEAD would quickly establish themselves as a vanguard of the exploding New Wave Of British Heavy Metal scene. With their genre-defining debut album Lightning To The Nations, DIAMOND HEAD became the band who influenced and opened gates for many metal bands. The Coffin Train, DIAMOND HEAD’s eighth studio album, is a glorious testimony to Brian Tatler and Rasmus Bom Andersens’ masterful ability to create the flavours necessary for prime DIAMOND HEAD music. The record was recorded in several different places. Guitars, bass, and vocals at Vigo Studios in Walsall and drums at Circle Studios in Birmingham. The album was produced and mixed at Ras’ Raw Sound Studio in London. When it comes to the concepts behind The Coffin Train, Tatler left the heart to Ras, who being a thinker and life-conceptualizer, doesn’t lack sources of inspiration. DIAMOND HEAD have not only managed to create an album of pure heavy metal intensity, they have created a timeless aural statement which feels destined to see them delivering both The Coffin Train and DH 2.0 to more fans than ever. DIAMOND HEAD will be touring Europe in the coming weeks and are confirmed on the line-up of two very special UK shows with NWOBHM giants, Saxon, which will take place on October 19th at the legendary Hammersmith Apollo in London and October 20th at the O2 Apollo in Manchester with additional shows to be announced soon.
