Diamond Head is obviously one of my favorite bands and for good reasons. However I wouldn't personally say they survived. They spilt up several times, reformed with new members and in all honesty their work after the break wasn't very good. I loved Lightning to the Nations, Am I Evil, and many of their early albums. I bought Diamond Nights and To Heaven from Hell, and Behold the Beginning because they were all the older material, but when I bought The Best of Diamond Head and on it were songs like Ishmael, and To the Devil His Due, I knew that Diamond Head hadn't made it out of the NWOBHM movement alive, or at least as the old Diamond Head that I know and love.
Then again like Black Lagoon said They are playing acoustic shows over in small Enlgish Bars and it's the old DH. I would have payed a lot of money to have seen one of those shows....
Are they still playing in England now, or are they done for ever?

"We contemplate oblivion as we resonate our dissonance
In godless random interpretation
The universe still expands, mankind still can't understand
How to define you, so hide your face and watch us exterminate ourselves over you
Welcome to the end my friend, the sky has opened"
