URIAH HEEP making a comeback with a new album in 2011??!! What the...
So what are they going to be? Classic Prog Rock? Old-man new-age? OK let's ponder it for a moment but remember that when they started 40-odd years ago the sound was as metal as it got. Gritty but fresh. Granted, nowadays it's as fresh as Genghis Khan's Codpiece but with a little nerve I'm quite sure they could pull off a break into the death metal scene. Man can live in hope but deep down inside I know I'll be hearing it on Planet Rock, not ChroniX.
Get yourself over to mp3dl and search some Uriah Heep. I recommend the old classic album "Very Eavy Very Umble", a quotation from the BBC take on David Copperfield, the Dickens from whence the band name came. I don't know which came first, the quotation or the album name. All I remember is Lyndhursts twisted shovel smacked face busting into the camera. (For this reason I assume the album came first).
Do you like Uriah Heep? Hate them? Have a listen and let us know what you think. It's as classic British as it gets, I'm sure.
