Twenty years of group members performing together on 12 bright shining studio recorded tracks.

‘Set Fire To It All’ takes the listener right into the hard glam boogie world of the great Scandinavian Diamond Dogs. Diamond Dogs has been touring the world for almost 20 years, now and then, along with friends like Nazareth, Ian Hunter, The Cult, Hanoi Rocks, The Damned, Sensational Alex Harvey Band, The Quireboys, and Dan Baird/Georgia Satellites.
For the recording sessions of ‘Set Fire To It All’ the Diamond Dogs also lined up the services of vocalists Spike (Quireboys), Ryan Roxie (Alice Cooper), Danny Bowes (Thunder), and Dan Baird (Georgia Satellites) among others.
