Deep Purple.. Metal or Rock


Found this rock forum
http://www.alternativeforums.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=277

and on there, they have a thread....Deep Purple..Metal or Rock.
Now ok...they have only recieved 11 votes on the topic so far but, other than the fact they cannot spell Purple correctly the votes are currently 6 -5 in favour of Metal.

Now, I have never had any doubts in my mind that DP are and always have been heavy rock.
Am I wrong? emoticon

Do you class them as Rock or Metal?

Rock, definitely!!!

I would even say Sabbath are rock! It was only with the arrival of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and the other NWOBHM bands such as Motorhead, Saxon etc, that heavy metal came onto the scene! emoticon

I'd call Deep Purple hard progressive rock. It has the soaring guitars with the classical keyboard sounds of ELP, etc.

Well according to a 1984 interview with Glover, I thought they were more country and western.

Probably hip-hop is the only thing they haven't been associated with.

ROCK!

Some cable station was doing "The 100 best Metal moments in history". Yawn! And I came away thinking DP is no part of that league!

In recent years I've "labeled" them as...progressive hard rock!
