Uriah Heep 'Wake the Sleeper' Finally Due in March 2008

Whoever called Uriah Heep ‘the Beach Boys of Heavy Metal’ was being extremely unfair.

They formed way back in 1969 and specialised heavy riffs and multi-part harmonies
Without Uriah Heep there would be no Dragonforce, Blind Guardian, Kamelot, Mastodon, Hammerfall or Stratovarius; they were the first to add metal to prog and by doing so were 10 or 20 years ahead of their time.

Their most famous tracks are Easy Livin and Sweet Lorraine but they have a total of 24 studio albums to their name and 15 live albums.

Wake the Sleeper is their much anticipated 21st album, due for reelease in 2007 but postponed due to a record company take over.

Uriah Heep have now announced a definite release in March 2008. Tracks below..

"Wake the Sleeper"
