Purple inspired bands


I thought people here would be interested in the discussion taking place on The Gear Page (the largest guitar forum) about Purple related bands strongly influenced by them and who may be similar in noticeable ways on at least some of their albums.

I've been posting many videos and perhaps some of the groups mentioned would be new and of interest to people on here.

[url][sign in to see URL]

Bands like Siena Root, Avatarium, Demon's Eye, Forever Deep, Murasaki, Heaven and Earth, Warhorse, Wicked Minds, Starglow Energy, Legs Diamond, Perpendicular, White Spirit, Zool, Jorn, Europe, Opeth, Uriah Heep, Inglorious, Kruk, Saffire, Show Ya, Disciples of Love, Captain Beyond, Birth Control, Walter Giardino's Temple and Rata Blanca are all there among others.

Some of the Purple alumni's bands get mentions (I mostly avoid that as it is usually so obvious unless it's a band like Warhorse etc).

I'd be curious to know if any are missing from the thread and to hear everyone's thoughts. It's the most complete list I have seen so far and it would be nice to add to it and have it on here.

Thanks I remember reading your thread and thought it was excellent. I hoped to get some more responses in case we missed something and in the meantime to expose more people to some good music, some of which is still being made and deserves support.

Did you have a chance to check out some of the people who weren't on your initial list?

Re: Purple inspired bands


Since you mentioned Europe and Uriah Heep, you could add Metallica too.
And Def Leppard, these guys admitted to be very
influenced by Purple.
And Dream Theater.
Opeth, just like DT they even had Purple inspired album covers.
Slash wearing an In Rock t-shirt and admitting he loved that album.
And just about all other hard rock/metal bands.

Well, maybe that's stretching it a bit too much, I think. Obviously, they influenced almost anybody in heavy rock, in different degrees and ways.

I haven't checked the Gear Page you mention yet. Of the names in your post, I'm not familiar with Avatarium, Zool, Kruk, Saffire, Show Ya, Walter Giardino's Temple. I'll check them out!

Thanks but I don't mean simply loosely inspired by Purple; the bands I mention have obvious stylistic similarities and nods to Purple. I did mention Opeth of course but bands like Def [sign in to see URL] Metallica are not what I had in mind.

Take a look through the thread I posted and the examples within and you should see what I mean right away. Those bands are OBVIOUSLY strongly influenced by Purple in their actual sounds.

Great I look forward to your feedback! You seem to be the only other person interested in this topic in the same way that I am emoticon

There are a few other people I didn't mention who are also in that thread who are not well known and I am curious to see if you know them and what you think of them.

There are video clips there of all of them and I have the same user name so you won't have trouble finding them throughout the thread.
