Diamond Head - 'Helpless' (Remastered 2021)

I gotta see you moving fast,
See you come my way
See the dreams,
I hope they last,
Never fade away
Gotta see the lights above,
Make it loud tonight
Gotta set it all on fire,
Set it all alight

I can see the flashing lights,
Hear the thunder roll
I am gonna set you alight
Gotta make it man,
I ain't got no choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight

I don't know what I'm gonna do,
Maybe not tonight, yeah
Gotta set you all on fire,
Gotta treat you right
I can see the flashing lights,
Laser for your love
Gotta hear the thunder roar,
Coming from above

See the flashing lights, hear the thunder roar
I am gonna set you all alight
Gotta make it man, I ain't got no choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight

I can see the stars, I can see what's going on
Every night alone, I sing my songs just for fun
Only time will tell if I make myself someday
The stage is mine, music is my destiny
Cannot squeeze the life from me

I can see the lights, I can see what's going on
Every night alone, I sing my songs just for fun
This business ain't for laughs, businessmen don't like it so
Helpless maybe babe, but you can still enjoy the show
Cannot squeeze the life from me

Gotta be good, see you tonight
I know that was fine
Gotta be safe, gotta be true
You know that you're mine
Help me now, I'm coming home
Gotta be fine, gotta be right
You'll set me alight
Help me now, I'm coming home
I can see the band from miles away
Looks so right, feels so tight
Feels so fine, feels so good
Makes a man a whole man
Lord it's gonna make my day

Diamond Head
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.

Μία νέα εκδοχή του θρυλικού δίσκου κυκλοφορεί ήδη (από τις 30 Σεπτεμβρίου 2022) από την Silver Lining Music υπό τον τίτλο "Lightning To The Nations (The White Album) [Remastered 2021]". "Βγήκε" σε βινύλιο, διπλό cd, τριπλό βινύλιο και διάφορες άλλες εκδόσεις (με μπλουζάκια).

Περιέχει συν τοις άλλοις και τις (ακυκλοφόρητες και αποκαλούμενες ως "Lost Original Mix" των τραγουδιών "Lightning to the Nations", "The Prince", "Sucking My Love", "Am I Evil?", "Sweet and Innocent". Το δελτίο τύπου μας δίνει τις λεπτομέρειες:

Diamond Head are of seminal importance to heavy metal music, and their debut album Lightning To The Nations is a key influence on the genre. Silver Lining Music is therefore proud to present Lightning To The Nations (The White Album) [Remastered 2021], the ultimate version of this ultimate album, featuring not only the original album from ¼ inch master tapes discovered in founder Brian Tatler’s archives, but also alternative mixes of classic cuts “Lightning To The Nations”, “The Prince”, “Sucking My Love”, “Am I Evil?” and “Sweet And Innocent” never publicly released (or heard) before.

There is also brand-new cover artwork based on an idea Brian Tatler had to show a character referred to as ‘The Lightning God’. The original tapes were first quite literally baked (a process which allows degraded tape to be returned to playable quality), then restored and digitized before Diamond Head frontman Rasmus ‘Ras’ Bom Andersen remastered the tracks, ending up with a pristine edition of the original recordings.

The alternative mixes, pure treasure for all fans of both Diamond Head and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, are supplemented by a set of bonus tracks originally recorded in 1980s, and rounding-out this ultimate edition are a set of deep and detailed notes on both the era and each song by Brian Tatler.
