First songs of upcoming Deep Purple tributealbum revealed

Sadly Jon Lord passed away earlier this year, as I've mentioned in a previous post. Big names in the Heavy Metal universe have decided to put together a tribute album entitled ‘Re-Machined: A Tribute to ‘Machine Head’ to honor the great band Deep Purple.

10 songs are set to be released on September 25th in America featuring coverversions from bands like Metallica, Chickenfoot, Iron Maiden, Glenn Hughes and many more. Ultimate Classic Rock has revealed six of the tracks of the album already and they think it might be a album worth buying. In addition they give us the chance to hear the six songs as stream. The following bands and songs can be heard:

Metallica ‘When a Blind Man Cries’
Chickenfoot ‘Highway Star’
Glenn Hughes, Steve Vai & Chad Smith ‘Highway Star’
Kings of Chaos ‘Never Before’
Black Label Society ‘Pictures of Home’
The Flaming Lips ‘Smoke on the Water’

Wanna  hear the songs? Go over here and enjoy it. :-)

Great, so I headed over and listened and enjoyed it very much. The new vocalist Ronny Hemlin seems to be a very fitting replacement to the excellent vocalist Urband Breed that did put his mark on the Tad Morose sound for a very long time. I'll keep you updated on the progress and the release date of the album but you are of couse welcome to like the band's official facebook page and stay in contact with them on that way. The band also has a nice website which can be found here. In addition tourdates for germany have been announced.
