Purple disciples bands around the world


I'm fascinated by bands that, since the '70s, produced albums of original material clearly influenced by Purple/Rainbow. Sometimes mixing it with touches of Heep/Sabbath but mainly DP. You know, all the cliches, fast opener, guitar/organ interplay, (neo)classical touches, instrumental jams, etc.
These are the ones I can think of right now. Would love to discover new names, can you help?
Thanks in advance.

-Murasaki, from Japan. Very good band, two studio albums and one live.
-Disciples of love, from Sweden (I think), one good studio album
-Storm at Sunrise, from USA, two studio albums
-Forever Deep, from Italy, one studio album
-Demon's Eye, from Germany, two studio albums
-Starglow Energy, from Switzerland, two studio albums
-Wicked Minds, from Italy, three studio albums, one live
-Black Bonzo, from Sweden, three studio albums, closer to Heep.
-Marran, from Sweden, four studio albums.
-Warhorse, Uk, two studio albums.

The latest Spiritual Beggars album is heavily inspired by dP MkIII.

They've always been a 70's revival band, but their last two albums show an even bigger nod to Purple.

The new Siena Root just came out, "A dream of lasting peace": heavily purple (circa Machine Head/WDWTWA) influenced, like the previous one "Pioneers". Very bluesy, touches of Heep and lesser obvious names, like Atomic Rooster. Lovely stuff!

Doogie posted about this band on Facebook recently. I checked them out and they are excellent. A mix of doom and faster paced material, strongly influenced by Sabbath, Heep, Purple.

Of course, I have to add:
Heaven & Earth "Hard to kill"
the previous one, "Dig", was quite good as well.

Legs Diamond called the American DP
First album produced by Derek Lawrence
Blackmore, Lord, Powell an thought Dio were mentioned in the Thanks section
Great band esp first album with heavily influenced by DP
On their last album they have a song called King Of Speed which has DP written all over. Also on this album is a song called This Time Around

Great band, indeed. The first "A diamond is a hard rock" is a classic to me! The last "Diamonds are forever" was also quite good.

Adding to the list a recent discovery:
Purpendicular, two records, both good fun, with Paicey, Glover, Tony Carey guesting here and there.
