URIAH HEEP — Demons And Wizards (review)

4.5/5 ·
Warthur
Somewhat more firmly metal-oriented than previous albums, but still mainly existing in the sphere of progressive rock, Demons and Wizards combines often-goofy lyrics with dynamic, emotionally powerful music that can't help but raise a grin despite the cheesiness on display. Many of the lyrics would be laughable were it not for the complete sincerity and overwhelming force of their delivery, whilst the musical ideas are the strongest and most diverse the band had attained to date, ranging from the feelgood anthem Circle of Hands to the progressive epic of Paradise/The Spell, a one-two punch which ends the album with a bang. This is how Uriah Heep should be remembered; with heavy organ, a Roger Dean cover, and songs about wizards.
