ROCKET Interviews Guitarist Brian Tatler Of DIAMOND HEAD


BrianTatlerdiamondheadband
TMD Rocks!

Legendary NWOBHM band, DIAMOND HEAD, needs no damn introduction. If you claim to be a fan of this type of music and don’t know the immense influence they’ve had on two of the biggest names in the history of metal, METALLICA and MEGADETH… you probably have not been a headbanger for very long. Their most famous song, “Am I Evil?”, undoubtedly ranks as one of the best heavy songs ever written. Sure, they are no household name like METALLICA, and never sold a ton of records, but perhaps this is all about to change finally. In 2014, DIAMOND HEAD hired a talented new singer named Rasmus Bom Andersen, and then next cut their first full length album in nine years. The self titled record is simply going to blow away American fans once it releases in North America on June 3, 2016.

Arizona’s 2 IN THE CHEST are fronted by vocalist/guitarist Reverend Black Jack McBride. The band is best explained by their bio, which reads: “When you go see a show it’s way more than just the music, it’s like busting open the swinging doors of some eighteenth century saloon, bellying up to the bar, and not only hearing the amazing music but listening to stories from the old west that they tell during the performance. Everything 2 IN THE CHEST does is part of that story. The characters, the clothes, the vibe… all are pieces to the incredible puzzle that this band has put together...
