REQUEST: Warhorse - Warhorse (1970 UK Hard Rock Prog)

BANDA FORMADA PELO EX-BAIXISTA DO DEEP PURPLE NICK SIMPER E QUE FAZIA UM HARD ROCK COM PITADAS PROGRESSIVAS EMBALADO A UM BOM ORGAN HAMMOND!!! O GRUPO INICIOU QUANDO SIMPER SAIU DO DEEP PURPLE EM 1969 PRA CONDUZIR E CANTAR NA MARSHA HUNT'S BACKING BAND, COM O APOIO DE RICK WAKEMAN NOS TECLADOS!! ESTAVA AÍ FORMADO O NÚCLEO DO WARHORSE!! DÁ PRA DIZER QUE SE ASSEMELHAVA UM POUCO AO SOM DO PURPLE, MAS MAIS EM FUNÇÃO DO SEU TECLADO VIRTUOSO!! BOM VENENO E UM DISCO BEM COTADO NO MERCADO DOS VENENOS!! ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!!!

Warhorse's self-titled debut was a progressive rock-heavy rock meld that was even less humorless than that of Deep Purple, let alone Black Sabbath, the band that they got compared to most frequently. There's a bit of art rock in the Hammond organ, and an operatic earnestness to Ashley Holt's lead vocals.

Formed in 1970 around ex-Deep Purple bassist Nick Simper, Warhorse were understandably close to early Deep Purple in their blend of keyboard-colored progressive rock and early heavy metal. The group coalesced when Simper left Deep Purple in 1969 to lead soul singer Marsha Hunt's backing band, which included Rick Wakeman on keyboards for a while. The backing band formed the nucleus of Warhorse, which recorded a couple of albums for Vertigo in the early 1970s.
