Artist Bio
Here comes the sequel to our 2003 release Blackmore's Castle. While some writers automatically have to attack all cover albums without neither trying to understand nor give them a serious chance an album such as this is a good way to both give the artists a chance to do something different and also find new fans. The previous Blackmore's Castle (vol I) was received very well by the fans of Lion Music so it was decided over a year ago that we would have to complete this series by releasing this second and final volume. It has taken quite a long time for us to get to where we are today, with a finished master of 12 immortal Deep Purple and Rainbow classics in new and fresh versions.
