Opeth, Spiritual Beggars, Anecdotes, Kamchatka or Candlemass: Just this small selection of bands, with whom Per Wiberg has already worked as a keyboarder, doesn't read badly. The multi-instrumentalist only lacked a real solo album in his vita. In an interview, the 50-year-old Swede offers interesting insights into his creative cosmos and also let his band King Hobo, whose review can be found further back in the magazine, elicit a few words about their new album.
eclipsed: Per, you have so many interesting bands and projects going on, why a solo album?
When the heavy Hammond organ sound is heard on the second track "Diamond Under Pressure" and Apollo Papathanasio (Firewind) takes up the position - quasi from the off - in the best David Coverdale manner, then this is more Deep Purple than Deep Purple have ever been in the last decades.
