DIAMOND HEAD releases cover of Metallica’s “No Remorse”

Lightning To The Nations 2020 Nears Release Via Silver Lining Music

DIAMOND HEAD first released Lightning To The Nations four decades ago in 1980. The single “Am I Evil?” gained massive exposure by Metallica and now DIAMOND HEAD return the favour with a cover version of the Metallica classic “No Remorse”.

“I wanted to cover a song from Metallica’s debut album, Kill ‘Em All,” explains founding member Brian Tatler, “partly because Metallica covered songs from DIAMOND HEAD’s debut album Lightning To The Nations and it felt like things have come full-circle to me. None of the band members knew how to play any of the songs from Kill ‘Em All and I eventually decided we should all learn ‘No Remorse.’ Then when we got into the rehearsal room, we played ‘No Remorse’ and immediately it just sounded great; it was very ‘DIAMOND HEAD‘ and it really suited us as a band. Of the four covers we ended up doing, ‘No Remorse’ sounded the best straight away. I’ve seen Metallica live over twenty times and they don’t play ‘No Remorse’ very often, but it’s always great when they do!”
 
“Of all the four covers, we almost didn’t have to work on ‘No Remorse’,” furthers singer and producer Rasmus Bom Andersen. “We all had to learn the parts, and it’s very difficult to play, but in rehearsal it did sound fantastic and we thought: ‘yeah, yeah, it’s gonna be mega.’ It was almost surreal when we did it because it just felt incredibly familiar.”
