Damn, "You have already voted in this poll." 

Deep Purple, again.  

Once Ronnie James Dio joined Sabbath, the doors were blown off ("Heaven and Hell").  Otherwise, it's Smoke on the water....

1974
purple had burn
 
1975
sabbath had sabotage
purple had stormbringer
purple wins by a bit
 
 

Nicely set out....though I have a different take on the winners in
71 - Sabbath for MAsters of Reality - I mean come on. Vs Fireballl?
72 - Purple (if only because of Made in Japan)
75 - Sabotage is (for me) much stronger than Stormbringer (Symptom of the Universe is a presonal fave)

Overall Sabs by a nose.

Black Sabbath, easily. I respect DP, but Sabbath is my choice.

Unfortunately, I do not enjoy the music of either of these two groups, but I'll vote for DP without hesitation.

Sabbath are the greater band overall for me but I love Deep Purple very much.
Sumdeus - surreal space/psych/prog journeys
Tathastu - funky/bluesy rockin' psych jams

Purple and Sabbath. Actually, Tony's old pal and best man Bonzo used to joke about the "Purple Sabbath" sound. He would have some interesting things to say about the Born Again album.

Loads of great albums from both bands. Just avoid the dodgy compilations (especially how EMI license the Purple catalogue so wantonly) and all should be well.

I like those polls where one can like both equally. Extremist division just causes consternation, controversy, criticism (subjective) and a few other words beginning with C this time.

Anyway it's 2013 and both bands have new albums out and are touring.

Hats off to the Purple and the Sabbath.Clap

Not sure Sabbath had an equivalent of the Gemini Suite.

Black Sabbath 'cause i started out on BS & they were my fave band for decades-though i like DP very much.Now it's kinda a tie for me between Hawkwind & BS for my favorite band.

Deep Purple had more facets to their sound, especially in the 60s when they were more adventurous. BS was a trend-setting band to be sure but not as exploratory.
