About Uriah Heep
Despite a Spinal Tap-like inability to secure a drummer, British band Uriah Heep has continued to roll with the punches since 1969. Their eclectic approach to rock folds dragons-and-dwarves imagery into grand musical themes drawing on prog-rock, metal, acid rock, and pastoral folk. The band were fairly popular in the U.K. in the '70s, and their albums charted respectably in the U.S. during this time as well. As the musical landscape shifted in the later '70s, the band's popularity died down, but they continued to release albums (their live discography is rather lengthy) and tour, and remained popular in Eastern Europe and Japan.
