uriah heep montreal

If heavy metal has a holy trinity then I just witnessed one of its parts during Uriah Heep’s first visit in 20 years to Montreal (the other parts being Black Sabbath and Deep Purple).

A little more than two years ago, I took a step out of my comfort zone and went to a metal show. I had a great time seeing Blind Guardian and Grave Digger, and my thoughts are well-documented – so I was naturally pumped when I got the chance to see a triple-bill of Black […]
