Connection to Michael Moorcock's Stormbringer?[edit]

In Michael Moorcock's fantasy books, Stormbringer is an evil magical sword that steals the souls of people it kills.

Does anyone know if Moorcock's sword influenced the lyrics of Deep Purple's song "Stormbringer"? Some of the lyrics might fit this a bit, but that's speculation. I wonder if the lyricist (Coverdale??) might have commented on this. Moorcock's books are the sort of thing that I could see Blackmore reading, and DP Mk III did have some other dark fantasy - based lyrics ("Burn", "Sail Away", etc.) — Lawrence King (talk) 03:33, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

This article has no genuine sources. (the Michael Moorcock one is surely a joke, because there's no way that's a genuine source).

Unreleased in the US for 20 years -- like the rest of the world cares? What does that have to do with the album, and is it even true? No evidence is provided.

I've removed all the spam from other bands. This has genuinely nothing to do with this album, and is nothing more than the usual band self-promotional spam that plagues wikiality on almost every page.

Different versions of the cover[edit]

No mention of US and UK versions of the cover. "The reissue is going for the blue tint of the American sleeve, as this is how it was meant to look." - [1] —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wavydavy68 (talkcontribs) 04:34, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

4.1 Mix[edit]

Isn't Quadraphonic a 4.0 mix? So which is it on the DVD, 4.0 or 4.1? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:28, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
