"I think 'Am I Evil?' will always be the most important song to me; it's certainly become our most famous and made the most money."
-Brian Tatler, Diamond Head.
When Diamond Head set out to write a song heavier than Symptom of the Universe, they were a young unsigned band consisting of Brian Tatler (guitar), Sean Harris (vocals), Duncan Scott (drums) & Colin Kimberly (bass). (Note: they did however borrow heavily from Gustav Holst's I. Mars, the Bringer of War from his Planet Suite)
School friends together in a band since 1976, Diamond Head became frustrated come 1980 when they found themselves still unsigned, even after support slots for AC/DC and leading nwobhm light Iron Maiden, and resolved to (more-or-less) self release a couple of singles. In February 1980's edition of the influential Sounds magazine, the most influential of all nwobhm writers Geoff Barton famously claimed:

6 mai 2008, 8h30m par GrantRSDiamond Head / "Am I Evil?" / Lightning To The Nations (4) / Oct 1980
Artist: Diamond Head
Original Album: Lightning to the Nations
Track: Am I Evil?
My Mother was a witch
She was burned alive
This was a bit of a pain to tag, I can tell you that. Should there or shouldn't there be a question mark? Is the original album Lightning to the Nations or 'The White Album', or are they both the same thing? If it was only originally released through mail order and at gigs, where did that release date come from? I still don't know if any of that information is right.
Is this the first Diamond Head related journal not to mention that certain other band beginning with M?
This song is above and beyond a lot (though not all) of the other NWoBHM stuff from 1980. Judging by their first album, the band deserved more success. It's one of the many travesties of the music business.
