Profile Great metal act coming from North Woodmere, New York, formed in 1984 by Craig Doucet on bass, John West on vocals, dummer Jeff Goldstein  and Mitch Diamond on guitar, released a demo in 1986. A year later the band released the one and only album on Mijems label, features vocalist Matt L’Amour of Pantera and Rob Dexter of  Battle Bratt.

The songs offer’s pure melodic rock guitar with the necessary hardness. Unfortunately the album didn’t took good reviews and the band dissolved a few months later, unfortunately again. In 1993 Reborn Classics re-released the album with the same name along with the Legs Diamond album “Fire Power” (1979) on one CD. In2005 on the Retrospect Records Label the “Diamond” debut album was released on a silver disc. But this edition was sold out quickly and is currently no longer available.

    The truth is Matt Lamour did nothing on this album.Mitch Diamond and Alan Plotkin are both my friends.Matt Lamour only had one appearance live who could not hold a stick to John West we go played with Royal Hunt and countless others….
    So please Matt Lamour was not involved at all.only one show at Lamour Rock club in Brooklyn..

    John West – vocals! Wonderful voice! (Wikipedia: John West prior to his joining Royal Hunt in 1998, contributed vocals to a variety of projects. His recording career began in 1986 as the singer of Diamond.)
