The Heep for me...Look at Yourself and Demons and Wizards are better than anything of Atomic Rooster IMO

Great albums indeed. But to me they fall short in comparison to In Hearing Of Atomic Rooster and Death Walks Behind You.

Rooster. They released way fewer albums, but man, Death Walks Behind You is killer, and so is their debut. The soulish funky era is enjoyable too.

Uriah Heep is the band that introduced me to Prog (even before knowing that Prog existed), so my vote is for UH.

No albums like Demons & Wizards from Atomic Rooster.
And then one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun

Atomic rooster!Nice band.
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

You either like Byron's voice or you think a fish salesman auditioned successfully for the gig.

Voted for Rooster.Wink

Not a poll worth having, if you ask me. I'm sure that more people have heard/heard of Heep than Rooster so they'll win by default.

Uriah Heep is my old flame. Atomic Rooster are surely good, but not too important and influential as Heeps, mostly thought  Byron´s era. Generally told, Heep´s music is relly more melodic and straightforward , Rooster´s one is darker and obscure.
 
Apart from worldwide fame. I´d bet 80% Rock fans used to know anything from Heep, on the other hand barely 10% anything from Rooster.
