5.0 out of 5 stars Nick Simper rocks with the best of them, 27 April 2000
This review is from: Warhorse (Audio CD)
Despite being dismissed from Deep Purple, Nick Simper proves that he had what it took in the world of heavy rock. This album positively burns, with each track providing a superbly crafted Simper bass line, complemented by the soaring vocal work of Ashley Holt and the brilliant axe-wielding of Ged Peck. The excitement of the piece bears slight resemblance to an In Rock (Deep Purple), or a Very 'eavy Very 'umble (Uriah Heep) so if you're a fan of early British hard rock, then this album is essential. Warhorse may not be at the forefront of every conversation on early metal bands, but it does not mean that their talent should be forgotten. Fantastic.

Well-said. The start of Vulture Blood has a dash of the Speed King about it, and quite a few people wondered at the time: What "musical differences"?! The Heep equation is valid, too, especially as Warhorse made use of more vocal harmonies than Purple (pre-Coverdale/Hughes). Ged Peck apparently went on to teach guitar. You're right - he is exceptional.
