Uriah Heep – Wake the sleeper

 {mosimage}Mick Box and company pull out a new studio album with an excellent CD artwork. 

One of the reference bands when talking about rock, prog and metal, Uriah Heep, is back with another studio album after one decade.

A rotund start with the heavy first track Wake the Sleeper that sounds powerful and sharp gets mixed with some other songs more in line with the classic sound of the band during the 70s, like Angles Walk Within or War Child, showing once more that Trevor, their bass player, has great songwriting skills, while Bernie´s vocals are standing out all over the album. And added to all this Ioannis ´artwork for the CD is classy and splendid.  

In summary, an album that ranks high in the long Uriah Heep´s career. Surely new and old fans will be pleased with the comeback.

 

Rating 4/5.
