    No, they are predominantly 'old-school' rock. A little of the heavy side at times. Their classic period was in the 70's but they do have some good albums released later in their career. I think there is a Heep acoustic album, but it just does not work for me. They used a lot of 'fantasy' imagery in their lyrics (demons, wizards, fairies and magicians kind of thing). They also had a couple of more commercial tracks like this one which I quite like - https://youtu.be/uTD2YICU1DY

    Incidentally, that opening to The Wizard is one of the most perfectly recorded acoustic guitars I have ever heard - whoever the engineer was, he got it 100% right. Obviously all analogue - no digital stuff in those days. https://youtu.be/YPZfFEW2G9A

    thanks Jerome...Lady In Black, brilliant IMO, noticed Ian Anderson 'features' on it.

    like I said, I liked the Demons album, will investigate them further, will start with their early material and work foreward.

    Their album 'Salisbury' from 1971 is also worth listening to. It was a pretty popular album at that time!

    ^Their "July Morning" springs instantly to my mind whenever Uriah Heep is mentioned ....
