Purpendicular: Human Mechanic

A simply phenomenal rock album and a true treat for fans of the sounds of Deep Purple. If anyone feels they do not get enough “Purple” from the last couple of Deep Purple studio albums, you have found your fix.

Beginning as the top Deep Purple tribute act, Perpendicular has morphed into a band that carries on the legacy and musical gravitas of Deep Purple while adding their own flavor and style to their sounds.

The tracks are clearly influenced by the sounds of the original band, yet it is not done in a copy-cat type of way. It doesn’t feel forced or unoriginal but rather fresh, innovative and comfortable. Funky, bluesy and mystic grooves that drive the album all the way down such as “Ghost” “Something Magical” and “Made of Steel” & flawless instrumentation from everyone involved, including Deep Purple’s own and only consistent member throughout, Ian Paice.

As a drummer myself, I must say it is beyond refreshing and inspiring to hear Paice absolutely holding down the groove flawlessly at nearly 75 years old. He still has that signature flare and feel to his playing all these years later and shows no signs of slowing down.

For me personally, the most important aspect of this album is that it doesn't feel like a retread or rip-off of Deep Purple as some may claim. As I stated earlier, it feels like an original blues rock album, influenced by the sounds of Deep Purple and designed to carry on their mighty legacy for years to come.
