Speak And Destroy – Brian Tatler

Metallica played four Diamond Head covers at their very first show. Since that gig on March 14, 1982, they’ve played “Am I Evil?” more than 700 times. As Lars Ulrich attested during his band’s 30th anniversary celebration, “[Diamond Head] is the reason Metallica exists, it’s that simple.” Cofounder and lead guitarist Brian Tatler joins Speak N’ Destroy to talk about Metallica and their relationship with his band, the NWOBHM group responsible for such songs as “Sucking My Love,” “Helpless,” “The Prince,” “It’s Electric” and of course, “Am I Evil?.”

Joel Gausten – Metal to the Nations: Diamond Head Hit 40 with Force

Here is a sample of Joel’s interview with Brian Tatler: Released in North America on June 24, the self-titled CD is the band’s first release with new singer Rasmus Bom Andersen, who came on board after previous vocalist Nick Tart emigrated to Brisbane, Australia with his family in 2008. “All we seemed to do was pay to fly Nick backwards and forwards for gigs,” Tatler recalls. “[We’d] just rehearse for the gig, and then Nick would fly back home because he’s got a wife and kids and a full-time job and…
