"Stormbringer" is the ninth studio album by Deep Purple, released in November 1974. On this album, the soul and funk elements that were only hinted at on "Burn" are much more prominent. This shift in direction was not supported by Ritchie Blackmore, who departed the band not long after "Stormbringer" was released.Fact|date=April 2008

Rereleases and cover versions

This record, which had been out of print in the US for over 20 years, has been the object of much renewed interest: Friday Music label released it stateside on July 31, 2007 (along with Made in Europe and Come Taste the Band). It is unclear which tapes were used as a source for this release, but the label's website claims that the album has been digitally remastered (but not expanded).

Additionally EMI (Deep Purple's label for much of the world outside the US) has worked with Glenn Hughes on a remastered, expanded version of the album (much like the one done with "Burn") which includes bonus alternate takes/mixes. Originally due on fall 2007, it is now being prepared for release now scheduled on January 19 2009 for the European/international market only. The release has been expanded into a limited edition 2 CD set: the first being the remastered and expanded release previously announced and a second CD consisting of a quadraphonic mix, which was originally released in the USA in 1975. Once this 2 CD edition is sold out, a single CD edition will follow it. A limited vinyl edition has also been planned.

The name "Stormbringer" comes from the fantasy works of Michael Moorcock. In Moorcock's novels, Stormbringer is an evil magical sword that drains the souls of all the people it kills. According to Moorcock, the members of Deep Purple were familiar with his work before they chose that name, but were under the misimpression that the name "Stormbringer" was from ancient mythology, when in fact it was invented by Moorcock. [See Michael Moorcock's post on the "Moorcock's Miscellany" forum: [http://www.multiverse.org/fora/showthread.php?t=330#post4810] .]

Before the start of the first verse of "Stormbringer", there is a backmask message, saying "The cocksucker, motherfucker stormbringer" quietly, which when played normally is inaudible.
