This morning in the Metal Digest office, we’re blasting out ‘Borrowed Time’, the 1982 album from NWOBHM legends Diamond Head.

However, time has been kind of ‘Borrowed Time’ and tracks such as ‘In the Heat of the Night’, ‘Call Me’ and the title track have become firm fan favourites. So this morning, crank it up loud and listen to the album as if it could be your last and you’re living on borrowed time… after all… isn’t everyone?
