This album was heralded a classic and became one of the most influential records of the period. Both Megadeth and Metallica cite Diamond Head as a major influence, with the latter covering five DH tracks over their career. In 1991 Brian and Sean were joined by Karl Wilcox (drums) and Eddie Mooham (Bass), and they began recording their fourth studio album.

Diamond Head are an English heavy metal band formed in 1976 in Stourbridge, England. The band is recognised as one of the leading members of the new wave of British heavy metal movement and is acknowledged by thrash metal bands such as Metallica and Megadeth as an important early influence. Two working class teenagers from Stourbridge created the band in 1976. Brian Tatler & Duncan Scott formed the band with a biscuit tin drum kit and borrowed guitar in Brian's bedroom.

Diamond Head's first album - aka the 'White Album," Lightning to the Nations, or simply "Diamond Head" - is somewhat like the Ark of the Covenant of heavy metal. By unlocking its New Wave of British Heavy Metal secrets, one will discover most all the connecting points between the genre's '70s originators and the ensuing '80s hordes - arguably even more so than via Iron Maiden

But on the White Album, I do definitely remember listening back to it and – once I’d got the guitar solo right and all the keys that change underneath the guitar solo – it just blew me away. Tatler also recalls how he got his particular guitar sound on Am I Evil: There’s a slightly strange sound on the guitar which is a wah-wah – this Morley Power Wah Boost. It was set at a cutting, ‘nasal’ position. It gave it a little more of an ‘evil’ sound, I suppose. Having split up in the mid-80s, Diamond Head reunited sporadically throughout the 90s, before Tatler soldiered on without Harris. To this day Am I Evil remains in the set-list. The Story Behind The Song: Judas Priest's Breaking The Law. Diamond Head: the return of the band who invented Metallica. It's Prog Jim, But Not As We Know It: Diamond Head. Riffs That Shook The World Metallica – Creeping Death.

Notes

Firstpress with neutral white sleeve and white labels, 1000 copies made.

Initially simply dubbed as an untitled "Special Limited Edition LP" on flyers which later became the title "The White Album". Shortly after the firstpress a repress of 2000 copies with printed labels followed due to high demand, this time under the band's own "Happy Face Records" label, with the title "Lightning to the Nations", which became the final official title for this album. A professional LP release with remastered sound and full colour sleeve followed by the german label Woolfe Records in 1981. Unfortunately the original master tape got lost after the remastering process, which is why all later pressings were taken from a vinyl source.

Both self released LP versions were signed by band members (ca. 250 copies for each band member), however some copies happen to be dedicated and/or signed by the whole band. Also some copies feature a handwritten track list info on the sleeve and/or labels.

  • Malann
Is this the best remaster? it's the first one so i figure it is.
  • Ghordana
I also bought my copy way back directly from the band through an add in Sounds musicpaper, no signatures on the cover. Just a handwritten tracklist on a small paper written by Sean's sister, she was doing mail and merch in the early days. I guess all the mailorder copies have no signatures or maybe there must have been an extra pressing with blank labels after the first 1000 which were as the story goes all signed, 250 copies by each bandmember.
  • Mataxe
Tracks also listed on a small slip of paper.My copy signed (UMIST gig, Manchester)
  • Mettiarrb
This is a great reissue credit to High Roller Records for always press quality vinyl Records.
  • Neol
Yep i agree, i can only comment on the silver pressing but the lp's sound great, maybe a touch better than my woolfe rec pressing! The A4 booklet has a hard card cover.

  • Camper
Own this version with an embossed slipcase with sticker. Remastered and deluxe booklet.
  • Benn
I bought this mail order from the band way back then . However my copy has no signatures on label or cover. in fact nothing at all. So will it be one of the first 1000 or ??
  • Doulkree
Same for me... just a blank white cover. Always wondered.
  • Gogul
I would expect so, I believe second pressing had printed inner labels.
  • Ffrlel
this was the first release of lightning to the nations on wolf records out of germany in 1981, the only other lp version of this was available on the fan club only lp edition from diamond heads fan club in 1980 on happy face records....... i loved the sleeve on this edition..
  • Jorius
this was my favorite cd reissue of this classic from 1980, you get the lightning to the nations album plus the bonus tracks are from the 1981 eps and high voltage did a great job on this with a really cool inlay. the best cd edition of this was done by earmark records in 2004 but that was on lp
  • Risky Strong Dromedary
this was a great reissue back in 2004 by earmark records, this is a nice replication lp of the original lighting to the nations lp that was released on happy face records in 1980
  • Hap
