NewEARS Album Of The Month"Something about Phideaux's work often immediately appeals. The music Phideaux 'discovers', unequivocally declares that it comes from somewhere deep within the composer's heart. His latest creation is no exception and strongly affirms this, in an album that contains a plethora of heartfelt melodies and numerous progressive twists.
Phideaux - Infernal
The album has many layers that wait to be unpicked and with careful listening overtime readily reveal themselves. These create a stimulating and long-lasting listening experience that remains fresh even after repeated plays. I have found something new and different to discover on each listen and it has been a joyous experience linking some of the themes contained in Infernal, albeit in a different form, or with a different mood or emphasis, to those contained in the music of both Doomsday Afternoon and The Great Leap.
Here in lies one of the great strengths of Phideaux's art. His music wears the influences of classic prog on its sleeve, but combined with a whole range of other types of contemporary and alternative music, he is able to create something that, in the end, is beguiling, very bewitching and unique."

Essential Track: "Opening the final part of the double album set is 'From Hydrogen to Love', at over 14 minutes the longest and maybe the most important piece here. With all the destructive power of Supper's Ready or IQ's Harvest of Souls, it's full of buildups, towering orchestration, references and majesty that a song of this calibre invites." PM-TPA

In 1973, Hughes joined Deep Purple. The trailblazing hard-rock legends had just weathered the departure of vocalist Ian Gillan and bass guitarist Roger Glover, but guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, keyboardist Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice continued with the addition of Hughes and David Coverdale. Any skepticism was squelched with the 1974 release of "Burn" which has since been re-released on its 30th anniversary. This stunning album rejuvenated the band and stands tall among Deep Purple classics.
