SKU: YP-DHDVD Categories: , ,


This powerful performance was recorded at the London Astoria on November 4, 2005. The show captures the resurrected band storming through all their classics including “The Prince”, “Sucking My Love” and “Lightning To The Nations”. The DVD includes an exclusive interview with the band and as a bonus, the making of “All Will be Revealed” filmed by Mike De Jager has been included. Deeply affected by Diamond Head’s idiosyncratic style, metal legends Metallica have covered “Am I Evil?”, “It’s Electric” and “Helpless”, all of which are featured on the DVD. Both Metallica and Megadeth have famously cited the band as an important early influence.

 SECOND HAND, sold as seen, no guarantees of quality play back. Sadly we can’t accept returns if playback is not satisfactory.

Metallica’s – Garage Inc.  album came out in 1998 and sold over five million copies. It contains four Diamond Head songs, and the royalties have changed my life a lot [says Diamond Head’s Brian Tatler]. I bought a house with my wife, and the constant flow of royalties mean that I no longer have to work.

“In 1998, I was visiting our drummer Karl in San Francisco, and I got a call from Lars Ulrich, who invited us to come and visit him at The Record Plant studio in Sausalito, California, where Metallica were recording Garage Inc. Lars showed us around and treated us to a playback of It’s Electric, that they’d just recorded.

“Later on we drove back into San Francisco to celebrate, and l asked Lars how many copies the record would sell. And he said, ‘this is probably going to sell five million copies, based on the the last few. So the beers are on you!’

“To get four songs on a Metallica album… I’ve been very lucky there. It’s just the way it is. They did great versions of our songs. They are very tight and make it rock. They introduced Diamond Head to millions of American fans that didn’t know Diamond Head, because we had never toured the US back in the day.

“I sometimes think of some of the other NWOBHM bands that didn’t get covered. It could have been Angelwitch. It could have been Tygers Of Pan Tang. I’m just very lucky.”   [Diamond Head’s Brian Tatler]
