Released on 10 December 1974 Stormbringer is the ninth studio album by Deep Purple, and the second studio album to feature the Mark III lineup including vocalist David Coverdale and bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes.

Although the band failed to ascend the same heady heights as they had withthier previous album Burn, Deep Purple nonetheless produced a dazzling album of classic rock, which contained classic tracks such as Stormbringer, Lady Double Dealer and Soldier of Fortune. 

Stormbringer is the name of the second Elric of Melniboné novel by Michael Moorcock. It is the name of a magical sword described in many novels and comics by Moorcock and others which enjoyed enormous success in the 1960s and 70s. David Coverdale has denied knowledge of this until shortly after recording the album. In an interview with Charles Shaar Murray in the New Musical Express he claimed that the name was from mythology.

Deep Purple – Stormbringer (2018 Limited Edition on 180g Purple Vinyl)

The cover image of Stormbringer is based on a photo. On 8 July 1927 a tornado near the town of Jasper, Minnesota was photographed by Lucille Handberg. Her photograph has become a classic image, and was used and edited for the album’s cover. The same photograph was used for Miles Davis’ album Bitches Brew in 1970 and Siouxsie and the Banshees’ album Tinderbox in 1986.
