What happens when a metalhead, a classic rock fan and a semi-drunken semi-hipster decide to talk music and more.

Episode 68 - Rainbow - Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow

January 21st, 2017

Look out! Today, Iron-Cast revisits the work of Ronnie James Dio and takes its first glance into the catalogue of Ritchie Blackmore when we delve into Rainbow's 1975 debut, "Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow". Made after leaving Deep Purple, Ritchie Blackmore took most of Dio's band, Elf, and formed Rainbow instead of making a solo album which had been planned. But what of this album? Is it a classic, spawning a lot of the fantasy and medieval themes that would permeate the metal genre or is it a missed opportunity offering only a glimpse of better ideas? Tune in to find out.

Plus, we read more of your emails.
