Dia­mond Head were formed in 1976 in Stour­bridge in the West Mid­lands. Though their career did not hit the highs that it deserved,  Dia­mond Head are recog­nized as one of the lead­ers of the NWOBHM and are acknow­ledged as a major influ­ence on bands that fol­lowed, most not­ably Metal­lica and Megadeth.

Heavy Metal Records released not one but two Dia­mond Head com­pil­a­tion albums. Am I Evil was first released on our sis­ter label FM Revolver Records (famed for The Stone Roses and Mag­num amongst many oth­ers!) in 1987 and was re-released in 1994 on the Heavy Metal Records label. Like­wise, 'Behold The Begin­ning' was released in 1986 by a label called Metal Mas­ters and later re-released in 1991 on the HMR label in CD format.
