The mighty Diamond Head needs no introduction. This White Album/Lightning To The Nations is the best edition i've seen in a long time, even better than the not so great "Deluxe" version. This is a must have for any heavy metal collector.

It was great old school hard rocking NWOBHM. Metallica may have covered them but they have nothing on the original version.

One of the best albums ever. This is the original does not get any better. Raw and not remixed the way it should be.

This band was one of the handful at the time that had the DIY aesthetic punk rockers had. Don't wait for labels to come running with cash in the fist promising tours, etc. Put it out yourself! And that's what they did. What they didn't count on was becoming one of the biggest to break out of the NWOBHM movement. These guys were more known than Maiden at the time and influenced Metallica in many ways. All i can say is buy it, you wont be disapointed! Tracks I like are "It's Elecric","Helpless" "Am I Evil?", "Sucking My Love", and "The Prince". Brian Tatler is THE MAN.

Wow, where do I start with an album like this? Lightning to the Nations (a.k.a. the White Album) is Diamond Head's 1981 debut album. It's also a quintessential New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) album and a hugely influential one at that. It definitely made an impression on Metallica back in the day, as they've since covered multiple songs off of this album. I'd put it up there with Iron Maiden, Wheels of Steel, Angel Witch and maybe Loose 'n' Lethal.

Diamond Head essentially built on a foundation of Deep Purple and Black Sabbath and added their own crazy sense of speed, energy and drama. If you subtracted all of the blues elements from Led Zeppelin's sound and crystallized the metal elements left over, you'd probably come close to Diamond Head's unique sound. Listen to Sean Harris' soaring, dramatic vocals over Brian Tatler's wild riffing and you can totally understand how Diamond Head and the rest of the early 80's British metal acts completely re-wrote the heavy metal playbook. "Lightning to the Nations", "Am I Evil?", "It's Electric", "Helpless" - nearly every song on this album is a classic.

Naturally it was Castle - who has totally set the standard for high quality NWOBHM reissues - that issued the definitive version of Lightning to the Nations. Housed in an all white embossed slipcase, the reissued album features brilliant digitally remastered sound and a host of bonus tracks.
