Diamond Head - "Sinner" (Judas Priest cover)

Ο δίσκος των Diamond Head "Lightning to the Nations 2020"
Sinner rider
Rides in with the storm
The devil rides beside him
The devil is his god
God help you mourn
Do you, do you hear it
Do you hear the thunder
Deafen every living thing about
Can you, can you see it, can you
See the mountains darken yonder
Black sun rising, time is running out

Sacrifice to vice or die by the hand of the
Sinner!
Sinner!
Sinner!
Sinner!

His steed of fury,
Eyes of fire and mane ablaze
Demonic vultures stalking
Drawn by the smell of war and pain
He roams the starways
Searching for the carcasses of war
But if it's hungry then its very presence
Disrupts the calm into the storm

Curse and damn you all you'll fall by the hand of the
Sinner!
Sinner!
Sinner!
Sinner!

God of the Devils, God of the Devils
Won't you help them pray
God of the Devils, God of the Devils
Is there no other way

Can't you hear their souls calling out in their plight
Can't you see their blood is boiling setting them alight

Thirty years now sleeping, so sound
War raises its head, and looks slowly around
The Sinner is near, sensing the fear
And the beast will start movin' around

Can't you see their souls calling out in their brain
Can't you hear their blood is boiling setting them alight

...Sinner, Sinner, Sinner, Sinner!
Sinner!
Sinner!
Sinner!
Sinner!

Sacrifice to vice or die by the hand of the
Curse and damn you all you fall by the hand of the
Sinner!


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.»

    1. Ω ναι. Ίσως ο μόνος λόγος για να ασχοληθείς με "Lightning to the Nations 2020" είναι οι bonus διασκευές σε σχέση με την αρχική έκδοση του δίσκου. Ακόμη κι έτσι όμως το αυθεντικό είναι (υπερ)απαραίτητο ακόμη κι αν πάρεις την νέα του έκδοση...
