Uriah Heep

Uriah Heep's by-the-books progressive heavy metal made the British band one of the most popular hard rock groups of the early '70s. Formed by vocalist David Byron and guitarist Mick Box in the late '60s, the group went through an astonishing number of members over the next two decades -- nearly 30 different musicians passed through the band over the years. Byron and Box were members of the mid-'60s rock band called the Stalkers; once that band broke up, the duo formed another group called Spice. Spice would eventually turn into Uriah Heep in the late '60s, once Ken Hensley (guitar, keyboards, vocals) and bassist Paul Newton joined the pair. Former Spice drummer Alex Napier was the band's drummer for a brief time; he was quickly replaced by Nigel Olsson.

Uriah Heep released their debut album Very 'eavy...Very 'umble (called Uriah Heep in the U.S.) in 1970. After its release, Keith Baker became the group's drummer; he recorded Salisbury, the group's second album, before deciding he couldn't keep up with the band's extensive touring and was replaced by Ian Clarke. Salisbury, featuring a 16-minute title track recorded with a 26-piece orchestra, showcased the band's more progressive tendencies. Later that year, Ian Clarke was replaced by Lee Kerslake and Mark Clarke replaced Newton; Mark Clarke quickly left the band and Gary Thain became the group's bassist. This lineup of Uriah Heep was its most stable and popular; beginning with 1972's Demons and Wizards, they released five albums between 1972 and 1975.

After 1975, the band's popularity began to slip. Byron left the band in 1977 and was replaced by John Lawton, yet the group's fortunes kept declining right into the early '80s. However, Uriah Heep soldiered on, continuing to release albums into the '90s and 2000s. The album roster included Different World (1994), Sea of Light (1995), Sonic Origami (1998), and Spellbinder (1999). ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured (but won't die) in two days now you started reading this so don't stop. Post this on at least five other songs in the next 143 minutes when you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen with a big letter this is scary because it actually work

Uriah Heep was amazing in concert last month. They absolutely kick it in 2015 and I highly recommend checking out their new album. The new drummer is fabulous and they have their hard rock / classic metal sound. Don't miss these guys live. Pandora needs to get their new stuff.

First time I heard Uriah Heep was Demons and Wizards in '78. I was 13 and I was hooked. Saw them September 17,1983 @ Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego for Skyshow. Motley Crue opened, then Uriah Heep, Eddie Money, and Def Leppard finished. Tripping balls on blotter! I believe it was the Abominog tour. Still have the ticket stub.

I have been listening to Heep since the early 70's. But don't ignore what they are still doing. We live in the US and miss things.... they ae still huge in Europe. They are still showing the metal bands of today how it should be done.

I choose this Band over my job , No regrets , even picked up a hitch hiker on the turnpike . I know ~!~ not smart . but I had a car load , i was safe . It was one of those Kansas thunder storms . where the rain makes you pull over . We had a blast . however ! The storm and the fact that the band got Juiced while waiting for power . It felt more like partying with the boys , than a concert . fun times ~~!!~~ ..Leaders of the time , yet no one got it !! Just US few ~!!~

Don't blame the people at pandora, they're not the ones who write the biographies and lyrics, they usually get them from various websites. Though, they could also find a source with more accurate info...

I got to say pandora really sucks at times. Not only do they make mistakes with the lyrics that are criminal, but they even get the history wrong. The last album gary Thain played on before his death is not even mentioned or in the files which was the album that had the big hit Sweet Freedom on it. It just makes me wonder who are the people they get their fcats from ?? The fact David Byron left after just one more album also should make this album important enough to be mentioned !!

Uriah Heep was one of my favorites as a teen and onward...at 15 I got to go to their party after at the motel where they rented out the entire floor...was it ever wild but oh so much fun!

It seems a lot of people did not get the warlock, wizard, magical themes of this band. It might also have affected the constant personnel changes. The lead singer has a very pleasant timbre and quality to his voice that has kept me interested in them for years.
