I was curious about this band, since I'd enjoyed the Metallica cover versions of several of their songs (Helpless, The Prince, Am I Evil). Overall, I'm quite pleased with the CD and it gets frequent rotation in my house. The band's sound is typical New Wave of British Heavy Metal, sort of a cross between Judas Priest and Led Zepplin, with a Black Sabbath tinge to the lyrics for good measure. Rockin' riffs, great melodies, vocals with a range that almost meets the Halford standard -- Highly recommended for all NWOBHM fans, and melodic metal fans in general.

The best edition for the best NWOBHM album of all time. Feb. 18 2014
By Sebastián Osorio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The mighty Diamond Head needs no introduction. This White Album/Lightning To The Nations is the best edition i've seen in a long time, even better than the not so great "Deluxe" version. This is a must have for any heavy metal collector.

Absolutely essential heavy metal album Sept. 25 2009
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow, where do I start with an album like this? Lightning to the Nations (a.k.a. the White Album) is Diamond Head's 1981 debut album. It's also a quintessential New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) album and a hugely influential one at that. It definitely made an impression on Metallica back in the day, as they've since covered multiple songs off of this album. I'd put it up there with Iron Maiden, Wheels of Steel, Angel Witch and maybe Loose 'n' Lethal.

Diamond Head essentially built on a foundation of Deep Purple and Black Sabbath and added their own crazy sense of speed, energy and drama. If you subtracted all of the blues elements from Led Zeppelin's sound and crystallized the metal elements left over, you'd probably come close to Diamond Head's unique sound. Listen to Sean Harris' soaring, dramatic vocals over Brian Tatler's wild riffing and you can totally understand how Diamond Head and the rest of the early 80's British metal acts completely re-wrote the heavy metal playbook. "Lightning to the Nations", "Am I Evil?", "It's Electric", "Helpless" - nearly every song on this album is a classic.

Naturally it was Castle - who has totally set the standard for high quality NWOBHM reissues - that issued the definitive version of Lightning to the Nations. Housed in an all white embossed slipcase, the reissued album features brilliant digitally remastered sound and a host of bonus tracks. The seven bonus tracks - some classics in their own right - are mostly b-sides from the album's various singles. The inlay is actually a big foldout with the lyrics on one side and a band history/biography/critical analysis by Classic Rock Magazine's Dave Ling on the other. It also includes some rare photos and early press clippings.

If you're a fan of the NWOBHM scene in particular, British metal in general, or just a student of metal history, you really need to have Lighting to the Nations in your collection, and this deluxe reissue is the best way to get it.

Cool bridge between Zeppelin and Metallica May 11 2014
By Matthew Schwarz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I keep thinkin' I need to check out the rest of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal - I love Iron Maiden, and enjoy Def Leppard - but, whenever I check stuff out, I feel like maybe a lot of that stuff never made it big for a reason; whereas Maiden takes the most metal of Priest and kicks it up a notch, most other metal circa 1980 is more in the "rock" side of things. Since Diamond Head is this big Metallica influence, I figured maybe they had a little more metal clout. Not really - "Am I Evil" has a nice heavy sound that takes 70s Sabbath a little forward, but much of the album still leans a bit towards 70s hard rock/metal (although more metal than many of their contemporaries). The singing definitely reminds me of a mix between Robert Plant and "Kill 'Em All" James Hetfield, the guitar is a mix of Sabbath, Zep, Purple riffage - maybe a little more modern, but it doesn't quite have the intensity of Maiden stuff like "Phantom of the Opera" or "Transylvania" (some of that may be the mix, here) The bonus tracks (almost half the disc) are even more 70s hard-rock leaning than the main album. Overall, I enjoy it, but I'm not blown away. So, if you want some underground metal from 1980, this is cool stuff, just don't expect it to be cutting-edge 80s metal.
