My favourite songs are Sucking My Love, Don't You Ever Leave Me and In the Heat of the Night, of course Am I Evil? is a classic and also some of the lesser known and bonus tracks from the debut album (Waited Too Long is really nice). I've heard some of the new album and it's not that good but not too bad either. Want to get my hands on the Friday Rock Show live album cos I had to skip one of the songs when I downloaded it, and it's got some ownage on there.

Im pretty sure that, I like many, checked these guys out because of metallica, and man was I disappointed, the only album worth anything is lightning to the nations.

I like them a lot and i dont think they ever got the credit that they deserved. They had some cool songs. I liked the album lightning through the natiions and thats really the only one ive heard.

i have their "Lightning to the Nations" album and i find it to be quite good. very underrated in terms of the other NWOBHM albums on this site.

i also love this band; DH is such an underrated band and yet they influenced so many other bands (early Metallica is the best example); I say DH is a cult band. Talented, competent musicians.

Amazing band! their debut album is IMO one of the best Metal albums of all times. They are underated yes, but that's ok because thats part of being a NWOBHM band . my fav songs are Shoot out the lights, it's electric, am i evil, Sucking my love and Streets of Gold.

SUCKING MY LOOOVEEEE OOH LOORD SUUCKING MY LOOVEE - one of the best riffs in the history of metal. a fun fact that i've just noticed is that the last solo(goddamit the guitar solo's in that track are so awesome) in the song is extremely similar to the last solo in "Love to Love" by UFO.

yup, i actually see them(along with Running Wild) as the most underrated bands in all metal from what i've noticed. DH should have been up there with Maiden and Priest as the forerunners of the 80s UK heavy metal scene.

hell, Lightning To The Nations is imo better than British Steel AND Maiden's debut and by far one of the best(if not the best) NWOBHM release in history.

Oh please, there are TONS of NWOBHM bands who are far more underrated than Diamond Head. Metallica pretty much elevated DH into cult status, whereas other bands such as Satan are not as noticed.

DH and Running Wild the two most underrated bands in all metal? No.

I was wondering the exact same thing. I would even dare say both those bands are OVERRATED.
Diamond Head are enjoyable but that's it. Metallica's covers of the DH songs are just superior.
As for Running Wild, my God they aren't even normal good.

Realy Maybe Lighting To The Nations and metallica make cover to best band song, generaly this band is borinmg and lame, I try listen it and I get bored all the time (Lighting album only what I can listen more then a one time)

Yeah, pretty much everything Diamond Head did after Borrowed Time was lame and boring (BT had good songs, it was nothing great but enjoyable at least). I cringe at Canterbury.

A good classic/US power metal band that isn't put in the same light as many other bands of its genre would be Manilla Road, IMO.

Hell yeah, +1 for Satan! The band, not the fallen angel.

Diamond Head is also great, never did receive as much recognition as they deserve.
