Stormbringer is the ninth studio album by Deep Purple, released in November 1974. On this album, the soul and funk elements that were only hinted at on Burn are much more prominent.
Stormbringer falls short of the excellence of Machine Head and Who Do We Think We Are, but nonetheless boasts some definite classics – including the fiery “Lady Double Dealer,” the ominous title song (a goth metal treasure), the sweaty “High Ball Shooter,” and the melancholy ballad “Soldier of Fortune.” Most of the other songs on the decent, if uneven, Stormbringer are not essential. Like Come Taste the Band, Stormbringer will be of interest to Deep Purple’s more enthusiastic fans, rather than casual listeners who would be much better off starting out with either of the above-mentioned studio projects or the live Made in Japan.
