Diamond Head Posts New Music Video Online

NWOBHM pioneers, Diamond Head, return to the world stage with a new album. The Coffin Train is at once fresh and exuberant while also being a stone-cold classic slice of old-school heavy metal excellence. Is it packed with the sort of riff-fueled power that founding member (and riff lord) Brian Tatler led a genre and influenced the odd band or two with? It's electric for sure... and then some.

The album's lead single, "Belly Of The Beast", is a ripping signal of intent with huge, catchy, crunchy riffs coupled with Rasmus Bom Andersen's fiery vocals and married to a steam-engine old-school tempo which will have headbangers gleefully reaching for their air guitars and aspirin. It is both furious and thickly intense.

Remarks Tatler, "'Belly Of The Beast' is the lead track on the album and the first single. This is classic Diamond Head, bringing to mind songs like 'Helpless' and 'The Prince'. It's a very exciting song to play and really pumps up your adrenaline. It's in your face the whole way though."

Andersen adds, "It's a song about personal demons; everyone carries at least one through their life. Don't be hasty to judge people, for we all have a battle inside."

"The Coffin Train" will be released via Silver Lining Music on May 24th. Pre-orders will be available on Friday, March 8th. More...
