Less groove, more metal

There is a tribute album to Deep Purple out in Brazil. The shtick is that all the covers are done by metal bands with female vocalists. And apparently Brazil has quite a few of them. Some of these can be rather interesting, as long as you don’t expect faithful reproductions of the originals.

Revengin – a very Tarja-esque version of Knocking at Your Back Door:

Sacrificed – Fireball:

Rizzi – Stormbringer (premieres Aug 2, 2020):

Sleepwalker Sun – Burn:

Duo Arcanum – The Gypsy:

Volkana – Highway Star

The Knickers – Hush

Pleiades – Woman from Tokyo

Final Disaster – Black Night

Dixie Heaven – Ted the Mechanic, a song that rarely gets a cover treatment

Thanks to Mike Whiteley for the heads up.

    Thanks for posting this. Nice collection of songs and not just the expected songs. I like the version of Gypsy in particular.

    Wow that’s proves DP music is eternally revolving and exchanging hands from one generation to the other. Their music will be bigger than classical giants of the past.
    Well done boys and girls and I love the improvisations it’s so cool. 👍✋👌

    For the most part these songs come across as Karaoke sung by someone who’s never heard the song before. Generally good musicianship and decent vocalists who stay true to themselves.

    Based on a verse and chorus from each tune, Ted’s the best of the bunch.
