Ask anyone! If it wasn't for Diamond Head we would've never had Metallica! You've heard Metallica play Diamond Head classics like "I'm I Evil?" "It's Electric" "The Prince" "Helpless" etc. over the years. Here's video of Diamond Head in 1980 doing "I'm I Evil" and Metallica in 1983 (W/ Dave Mustaine) doing the song also! One of the originators of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Diamond Head play El Corazon tonight Monday 8/15/11 with local metal heroes Zero Down! You've heard them on KISW's Loud & Local now see 'em live in their New Wave of British Heavy Metal element with Diamond Head tonight! I just finished the cover photo for the upcoming Zero Down CD and sent it off yesterday! Gonna be AWESOME! Can wait to share it with you all here soon! It's 2011 but TONIGHT it's the early 80s wave of NWOBHM at El Corazon! Show the spirit wear your Diamond Head, Raven, Saxon, Tank, Motorhead, Venom, etc. shirts! See ya in the front tonight! Horns up!
