Diamond Head Reissues

(antiMusic) Just got news about some reissues from the band that inspired Metallica. Here is the announcement: Diamond Head is undoubtedly one of the most important names in the history of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement. Put next to giants like Iron Maiden and Saxon, the band's music is a constant inspiration to various modern acts - Megadeth's Dave Mustaine along with Metallica's James Hetfield and Lars Urlich often mentioned Diamond Head as one of their most important influences in the entire music business. The group's albums to this day impress NWOBHM enthusiasts and gather new fans, delivering all the best features of ambitious heavy metal music one could desire.

And today Metal Mind Productions presents re-issues of two Diamond Head's albums: "Borrowed Time" from 1982 - one of Diamond Head's most intense productions, taking the listener on a journey through fascinating arrangements and enchanting melodies - and "Canterbury" from 1983 - the album featuring a drastic style-change, as the band decided not to limit themselves to the heavy metal genre and incorporated many hard rock ideas into the record. Diamond Head to this day remains a living legend of the NWOBHM genre. Now, with these reissues, heavy metal enthusiasts can once again witness the power of the classic compositions that forever changed the concept of metal music. Both titles will be released on the 15th October 2007 via Metal Mind Productions.
