New Wave Of British Heavy Metal pioneers DIAMOND HEAD will issue their anticipated new full-length, The Coffin Train worldwide on Friday, May 24th via Silver Lining Music. In celebration of the record’s release, the band is pleased to unveil the thought-provoking video for the album’s title track.
Notes guitarist Brian Tatler of the track, “I am very proud of this song and it’s my favourite from the new album. It is one of the best songs I have ever co-written and cannot wait for people to hear it. I love dynamics and mood changes in songs and this has it all for me. From the clean, tension-building verse, stepping up for the bridge then dropping into a massive heavy chorus… At just over six minutes, it’s an aural feast.”
“It’s easily the best song on this record,” continues vocalist Rasmus Bom Andersen. “We put so much effort into making this a true DIAMOND HEAD song from start to finish and we hope our fans feel the same.”
“Pure Class; it slows the pace down,” adds drummer Karl Wilcox. “Fans and new-comers will appreciate the choice of Brian’s guitar work. Guitars, groove, harmonies, and hooks abound, as this track rumbles along until it reaches its thundering finale. Take a seat…”
“The Coffin Train” video was produced and animated by All4band Motion & Design Studio under the visionary direction of Maria Goruleva.
