THE ARCHIVE: Letter from Lars Ulrich to Brian Tatler of Diamond Head (1981)

After returning to America, Lars stayed in touch with Brian Tatler via letter. On this page he mentions his band Metallica who, at the time were about to release a single track on a compilation album. Metallica recorded a version of the Diamond Head song Am I Evil for the b-side of their 1984 twelve-inch single ‘Creeping Death’. The song that Brian Tatler had written by trying to ‘out-heavy’ Tony Iommi had directly inspired another band.
