Diamond Head have premiered an animated video for their cover of Metallica’s “No Remorse.” This track is included on the band’s new re-recorded version of “Lightning To The Nations,” which was released today (November 20).
Brian Tatler commented:
“I wanted to cover a song from Metallica’s debut album, ‘Kill ‘Em All’. 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!”
Rasmus Bom Andersen added:
“Of all the four covers, we almost didn’t have to work on ‘No Remorse’. 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.”
