DIAMOND HEAD Finish Recording New Album

Reunited NWOBHM legends DIAMOND HEAD have finished tracking their first full album of new songs since 1993's "Death & Progress" and are currently mixing the effort with producer Andrew Scarth for a tentative spring 2003 release.

The as-yet-untitled CD, which was recorded at Mad Hat Studios near Wolverhampton, England, will reportedly contain "lots of 'Heavy Rifferama' and [frontman] Sean [Harris] doesn't stay quiet on it for more than five seconds at a time!" according to a report on the band's official web site.

"[Guitarist] Brian [Tatler] and Sean have said that the making of this album has been the most fun since the 'White Album'," the report continues. "However, recording nearly had to be stopped when the two fell out over an argument as to whether Spiderman or Batman were the best superhero."

Among the tracks set to appear on the album are the following:

01. Shine On Me
02. Forever 16
03. Deep
04. The Ferryman
05. Music Box
06. Medusa's Gaze
07. Real Woman
08. Silverdaze
09. Tumblenight
10. It's Alright
11. Heart Of Stone
12. Voodoo Sky

DIAMOND HEAD are planning to tour Europe and America in 2003, and will be performing at some of the summer rock and metal festivals.
