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.

The nucleus of the original group was David Byron, a singer with an operatic voice and multi-octave vocal range and lead guitarist Mick Box, both of whom had played in a psychedelic group called Spice in the sixties. The third member of the core of Uriah Heep was Ken Hensley, who contributed keyboards, some guitar and most of the songwriting. Bassist Gray Thain and drummer Lee Kerslake completed the "classic" line-up that played on the ''Demons and Wizards'' and ''The Magician's Birthday'' albums.
