New Wave Of British Heavy Metal pioneers DIAMOND HEAD will issue their anticipated new full-length, The Coffin Train, on May 24 via Silver Lining Music.

At once fresh and exuberant while also being a stone-cold classic slice of old-school heavy metal excellence, the record is packed with the sort of riff-fuelled power that founding member Brian Tatler led a genre and influenced the odd band or two with.

In advance of its release, the band has issued the first in a series of video clips discussing The Coffin Train.

In this clip Tatler talks about his favourite track on the record.

The Coffin Train, DIAMOND HEAD’s eighth studio album, is a glorious testimony to Brian Tatler and Rasmus Bom Andersens’ masterful ability to create the flavors necessary for prime DIAMOND HEAD music.

The record was recorded in several different places.

Guitars, bass, and vocals at Vigo Studios in Walsall and drums at Circle Studios in Birmingham.

The album was produced and mixed at Ras’ Raw Sound Studio in London.

When it comes to the concepts behind The Coffin Train, Tatler left the heart to Ras, who being a thinker and life-conceptualiser, doesn’t lack sources of inspiration.

The Coffin Train will be released via Silver Lining Music May 24th. For pre-order options, go here.
