Diamond Head - "Sweet And Innocent" (audio)

Ο δίσκος των Diamond Head "Lightning to the Nations 2020"
You live it good girl
And baby you live it high
You reach it easily
Makes me wanna cry
You look so good girl
I suppose you always do
So fine and so sweet
It's good to look at you

Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I'll pass around, yeah

You ain't in fashion
Baby you're as one
It's not long before
It's much more than fun
Yes it's taking chances
But they don't want to know
And since your fine baby left you
Don't know which way to go

Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I'll pass around, yeah

You live it good girl
And baby you live it high
You reach it easily, makes me wanna cry
You take it good girl
I don't know who will bring you down

Sweet and innocent
And settled down

Sweet and innocent
I'll pass around, yeah


Τον Οκτώβριο του 1980 κυκλοφορεί ένα δίσκος με ολόλευκο εξώφυλλο χωρίς τίτλο. Κάποιοι το ονόμασαν "The White Album", αλλά τελικά επικράτησε ως τίτλος το "Lightning to the Nations" λόγω του εναρκτήριου τραγουδιού. Το ντεμπούτο των Diamond Head είναι γεγονός.

Καταιγιστικοί hard & heavy ρυθμοί, η φωνή του Sean Harris, το μεγάλο ταλέντο του Brian Tatler που αστράφτει, ριφάρες, τραγουδάρες (όλες)! Το "Am I Evil?" έγινε πασίγνωστο λόγω της διασκευής των Metallica, ενώ το "Sucking My Love" είναι το "Whole Lotta love" των 80ς.

"Lightning to the Nations 2020". Πρόκειται για την επετειακή (για τα σαράντα χρόνια) έκδοση του ντεμπούτου των Diamond Head επανηχογραφημένο (με την τωρινή σύνθεση της μπάντας) και περιέχει τα επτά τραγούδια της αρχικής έκδοσης συν τέσσερις διασκευές σε μουσικά κομμάτια των Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Judas Priest και Metallica...

Δελτίο τύπου: «With Diamond Head having featured so heavily in Metallica’s early career, the cover of ‘No Remorse’ seems especially appropriate. When Diamond Head first released Lightning To The Nations 40 years ago in 1980, few could have predicted the importance it would carry with regards to heavy metal’s new wave and sound. Stacked and packed with riffs, Lightning To The Nations would be one of the prime catalysts for a movement known as the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM).

Re-imagined, re-recorded and re-born in 2020, Diamond Head’s forthcoming 40-year celebration of their genre-defining debut album is a scintillating shot of fresh metal energy. With Lightning To The Nations 2020 listeners experience not only the rare phenomenon of crisp, fresh and new sounding songs with very little of the obvious original elements altered, they will also be treated to four supreme cover versions… And in prime position stands Metallica’s ‘No Remorse’.

Recorded over several sessions between various locations, from France to band members’ home studios, Lightning To The Nations 2020 central hub was Andersen’s Raw Sound Studios in London. It’s where Brian and Abbz did the guitars in February and March of this year, and then with the COVID-19 chaos striking, Andersen worked on the album between April and July, with Tatler’s watchful ear inspecting final mixes and tweaks in early August before sending off to mastering at Metropolis Studios in London.

This edition of the album sees Diamond Head spreading their wings and creating the heaviest of homages also to Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest and Deep Purple. Lightning To The Nations 2020 (November 27th 2020, Silver Lining Music). Available in multiple formats, special D2C bundles, including a limited edition autographed ‘No Remorse’ poster.»

  2. Μπαντάρα και δισκάρα γεμάτη ύμνους. Η επανακυκλοφορία με τις επανεκτελέσεις παντελώς αχρείαστη. Όσοι ενδιαφέρονται ας πάρουν το πρωτότυπο με τη φωνάρα του Sean Harris. Αλήθεια τι κάνει αυτός; Που χάθηκε;

    1. Δεν έχω την παραμικρή ιδέα. Σε φετινή συνέντευξη ο Brian Tatler όταν ρωτήθηκε για τον Sean είπε:

      «I haven't seen him even for a few years. We both went to the METALLICA 30th-anniversary [shows] in San Francisco and we got up and played the four covers that they've done with METALLICA, so that was fantastic, but that was 2011.

      I've seen him once or twice since then. We sort of don't… all I know is that he just continues to write songs for himself, really; he doesn't write for anyone else.

      But strangely enough, he doesn't make records and he doesn't do any gigs. He just seems to be constantly writing. I don't know what for. I don't what he's waiting for or he's expecting to happen with these songs. We're not getting any younger.

      I think it's better to just get on with it and release stuff. We've released four albums without Sean, DIAMOND HEAD has. Sean hasn't released anything.

      The last thing he released, I think, was 1993, which was the 'Death And Progress' album, the fourth DIAMOND HEAD album. I've not heard anything he's done since then.»
