2. IT’S ELEC­TRIC (1980)

DI­A­MOND HEAD

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Metallica -

Join­ing Iron Maiden, Saxon and Def Lep­pard in the New Wave Of Bri­tish Heavy Me­tal, Di­a­mond Head were tipped for megas­tar­dom in 1980. Due to bad man­age­ment de­ci­sions and wrong deals, that didn’t hap­pen, but the Stour­bridge quar­tet in­flu­enced Lars Ul­rich, who crossed the At­lantic to watch them live and hang out. Shortly af­ter, their setlists were get­ting repli­cated by a fledg­ling Me­tal­lica. It’s Elec­tric was in­spired by an AC/DC con­cert in Birm­ing­ham in 1977.
