Background: Released in 1974, Stormbringer was the ninth studio album from Deep Purple, and their second to feature singers David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes.
The album reached #20 in the U.S. and #6 on the UK charts.
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.”
