Diamond Head in the ‘Big Four Jam’ at Sonisphere UK!
It needs no introduction. Everyone has heard of Thrash Metal’s Titans; Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax, and it was no surprise that this years announcement that the big four were to play TOGETHER for the first time ever at the UK’s Sonisphere Festival, with Diamond Head opening proceedings, that Metal fans across the world just HAD to be there!
All of the stops were pulled out at this historic event when the highly anticipated ‘Big Four Jam’ towards the end of Metallica’s set, saw members of Diamond Head, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Sepultura, Exodus take to the stage for a renditon of Diamond Head’s ‘Am I Evil?’ – A Thrash Metal fans dream!
In addition, it is worth noting that Diamond Head were also recognised in Metal Hammer’s Golden God Awards 2011 held in June at the IndigO2, London. The band were presented with the ‘Spirit Of Hammer’ Award and acknowledged as the reason why Metallica exist having been a heavy influence on their music!
