Could be "not playing", though that would be kinda pointless... emoticon

Forgive my ignoranceL what does np mean? As for "Turn To Stone" (great song with a very cool Iommi solo imo), I always felt that was one of the Deep Purple tracks that Hughes never did with Deep Purple.
Many postersn here might disagree with me on this foloowing point, but I thought "Seventh Star" by Sabbath was the Deep Purple album that SHOULD have been released after "Perfect Strangers". Hughes was fantastic on that disc, and Iommi never soloed better, imo.




7th Star strikes me as being more like the link between Whitesnake's Slide It In and 1987.

HEY! What afascinating idea! The time frame is spot on, and both singers have good (great) range. I wonder if 1987 WS album was really what alot of critics asserted: the "logical" continuation of what in '74 started as the "Burn" sound. I recall a reviewer speking of the WS album as being "Burn" with synths and complete lack of Classical, blues, and funk influence (it was a negative review). I find that hard to believe myself, as "Burn" was imo a more enduring work (I LOVE some of the songs off of WS 87 tho, like "Crying In The Rain" and SotN).

That is certainly true if you glance though an issue of the UK magazine 'Classic Rock'.

Things get tricky for me when considering the above amalgamation as applied to bands like Deicide and Emperor. That's when it seems things get convoluted: Classic Metal, Black Metal, Death Metal... bands like Entombed produced a weird hybrid (on their interesting "Wolverine Blues") which they referred to as Death and Roll!

Apostate, I'm sorry, I don't know the bands you mentioned but got the point from the context.

Well, we could call ALL of it "rock". It's just tough to listen to something like "Stargazer" and then Chuck Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven" without applying a different genre to the basic "Rock" designation.
Emperor is extremely fast Black Metal, the latter term meaning they utilize a more extreme version of Gillan's CIT "ooo ooo ooo" throughout the discs they put out The lyrics and keyboards lend the otherwise chaotic sound a fascinatingly mystical atmosphere; kind of like Rainbow Rising up to 100 rpm.
I reccomend highly Emperor's "In the Nightside Eclipse" (the absolute Classic of the Extreme Metal genre), but I'm not sure you'd like it unless you weren't irritated (as most are) by hyper-fast "blast" drumming, as well as the monotony which can wear on when one gets about five songs into any Extreme Metal release.
