* IAmTheBand: A bizarre example. Mick Box, the lead guitarist, is the only original member still in the band to this day. For a time they were a simple revolving door band after all of the original members left, with Box as the only constant member. However the line-up that he formed in 1986 lasted 21 YEARS and would still be together today, had ill-health not forced a change in drummers.

* EpicRocking: The second side of the album ''Salisbury'' is occupied by a sixteen-minute long suite featuring a twenty-six piece orchestra. One of their most popular songs, "July Morning", is another good example.

* {{Glass Shattering Sound}}: The late great David Byron had an incredibly powerful falsetto, as heard among other places on "Sunrise" from ''The Magician's Birthday''.

Added DiffLines:

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Most of their harder-rocking material is in the 4-6 range. They also have a variety of softer material that's lower on the scale, too.
* ProgressiveRock: Of the harder-rocking variety- they're almost an UrExample of ProgressiveMetal.

Uriah Heep are a British ProgressiveRock band [[LongRunner whose debut was released in 1970]], with 21 albums under their belt. They are considered one of the first metal bands, having been beaten to the punch of actually creating it by Music/LedZeppelin, DeepPurple and Music/BlackSabbath by a year or two.

* FaceOfTheBand: David Byron was this for a long time until his departure (precipitated by his alcohol problems) was forced by Ken Hensley. Now it's probably Mick Box.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: In their native UK (and America) they're essentially a cult band, but in Asia and mainland Europe (particularly Germany, entertainingly enough) they retain a strong following and continue to sell out arenas there.



* {{Nightmare Fuel}}: The cover of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:VeryEavyVeryUmble.jpg their debut album]]. [[http://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/uriah_heep/abominog/ Abominog]], too.



* {{Vindicated By History}}: Their first album was met with poor reviews upon release, with one reviewer famously saying that she would kill herself if the band actually made it. The album is now considered a landmark in the history of rock and metal.
