Riff-Mag.com conducted an interview with progressive rockers URIAH HEEP at this year's edition of the Hellfest festival, which was held June 15-17 in Clisson, France. You can now watch the chat below.
URIAH HEEP will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of its classic fourth album, "Demons And Wizards" by performing the LP in its entity at select U.S. shows this fall.
"Demons And Wizards" is regarded by many fans and critics alike as URIAH HEEP's best album, often ranked against the preceding "Look At Yourself". Even Rolling Stone magazine, which printed an infamously negative review of the band's debut album, ran a positive assessment of "Demons And Wizards". The songs "The Wizard" and "Easy Livin'" were released as singles in the United Kingdom and North America, as well as many other markets. "Easy Livin'" entered the U.S. Top 40 at #39, making it HEEP's first and only American hit. "Easy Livin'" was also a mega hit in the Netherlands and Germany, countries which were becoming a strong market for the band. The album itself was certified gold in the U.S. on October 27, 1972.
URIAH HEEP's latest album, "Into The Wild", was released in April 2011 via Frontiers Records. The CD was produced by Mike Paxman (STATUS QUO, ASIA) and features cover artwork (see below) by the renowned Greek-American artist Ioannis (LYNYRD SKYNYRD, STYX, SAGA).
