The guitar player Mick Box told about this ambitious project: «Well, we’ll give to our loyal fans a piece of Uriah Heep every single day of the week»
On September 24, 2021 BMG will release the new Uriah Heep boxset “Every Day Rocks”.
British hard rock legends Uriah Heep are one of the “Big 4” rock bands along with Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, and certainly one of the most intriguing bands both musically and lyrically to have ever emerged in the heavy rock scene.
The ambitious boxset “Every Day Rocks” contains the British band’s first seven albums in picture disc format and seven t-shirts. Also included are a calendar for “planning listening” and art cards with song lyrics. “Every Day Rocks” is available exclusively through the band’s official store.
These seven albums are officially available for the first time in picture disc format; “Demons And Wizards” (1972) and “The Magicians Birthday” (1972) will have a revamped artwork by Roger Dean.
Here guitar player Mick Box’s comment: «Together with BMG we wanted to do something special for our fans, something that will give them a piece of Heep, every single day of the week. Our first 7 albums will be released on picture disc and there will be a t-shirt for each album, to wear for every day of the week! We’ve also included an annual wall planner so you can plan your listening or just make some notes on how the albums make you feel.»
Uriah Heep proved to everyone that they deserve their legendary status by evoking an amazing era where progressive, hard rock and heavy metal coexisted in a glorious historical period of boundless music.
Having sold over 40 million albums worldwide over the years Uriah Heep have influenced several metal bands, including Ronnie James Dio himself. Bands like King Diamond, Krokus, Demons & Wizards (obviously!) and Axel Rudi Pell have all cited Uriah Heep as a major influence band, while W.A.S.P., Tesla and Blackmore’s Night still perform covers in honor of the British group.
