2010 is the 30th anniversary of DIAMOND HEAD's debut album, Lightning To The Nations (aka The White Album). At selected dates on the band's upcoming European tour, the British metallers will be playing the entire album back to back for the first time ever. Lightning To The Nations was recorded in seven days at Old Smithy Recording Studio in Worcester, England in 1979 and was released on October 3, 1980 through their own label Happy Face Records. The full tracklisting for the album was as follows: 'Lightning To The Nations' 'The Prince' 'Sucking My Love' 'Am I Evil?' 'Sweet & Innocent' 'It's Electric' 'Helpless'. Lightning To The Nations came in a plain sleeve with no title, having on it only a signature of one of the band members and no tracklistings. The reason for this was that the band's manager, Reg Fellows, owned a cardboard factory and could produce blank sleeves at a low cost. There were originally only 1,000 copies pressed of the album, which were only available at their concerts or through mail-order at a price of £3.50. The track 'Am I Evil?' was made famous by METALLICA as a B-Side to the single 'Creeping Death' released in 1984.
