Prog Reviewer
4 stars If I may 'umbly say, the debut album by Uriah Heep is, whilst certainly 'eavy, not as unrelentingly 'eavy as the spooky cover art or bold title might make you think. On here the group play a broadly hard rock style with a mixture of bluesy and psychedelic elements which lay the foundations for the more prog-inclined path they would take on Salisbury. It's an entertaining sound which is a bit of an artifact of its times; although it doesn't quite give you an idea of the classic Uriah Heep sound the way the next three studio albums would, it does show them being quite a capable unit early on able to turn their hand to a range of different styles.
