Diamond Head have made their self-titled seventh album available to stream in full.

Diamond Head was released in March and can be heard in its entirety below.

Mainman Brian Tatler says he is thrilled that heavy metal is still as relevant as it was when the band first found fame in in the 1980s.

He tells Noisey: “I think heavy metal has stood the test of time, hasn’t it? I always thought rock was a very loyal style. I got into rock when I was 13 or 14, and I still love it now and I can see that in other people.

“It’s not like pop or a fad or a fashion, it never leaves you. You don’t care a jot if it’s not fashionable or people laugh at you. You love it because you love it. If you get into a band like AC/DC, you end up buying every single album and going to see them.

“I’ve probably seen them 12 times, I’m just a loyal fan. I don’t think other styles of music have that kind of loyalty and when Diamond Head play live you don’t get just 40-year-old guys with their arms folded standing there, you do get young kids going berserk at the front.”

Diamond Head have a number of tour dates lined up for 2016.
