Uriah Heep

Uriah Heep is a fictional character created by Charles Dickens in his novel David Copperfield. The character is notable for his cloying humility, obsequiousness, and general insincerity.


Uriah Heep was a progressive rock and heavy metal band, formed in the late 1960s in Britain. Their debut album was Very 'eavy...Very 'umble[?], but was self-titled in the United States. Their second album, Salisbury[?] was squarely in the progressive rock genre. In spite of their huge popularity in Britain, Uriah Heep was never able to break into the American audiences in a big way. They released several albums in the 1970s, but their audience declined during the 1980s, becoming essentially a cult band[?].
