Box later said, "Image-wise he wasn't quite what we were looking for, but his pipes were perfect and so we went for the music end of it. Firefly was released in Februarydisplaying "renewed effervescence and energy in unveiling what was clearly a new beginning for Heep" per. Blows"a new vigour and confidence" according to a Record Mirror review  and also the new singer's abilities: the latter according to AllMusicAlbum), although lacking the multi-octave range of David Byron, "…boasted an impressive and emotionally rich hard rock voice that instantly jelled with the Uriah Heep sound.
Paul Stanley later recalled, "They were incredibly professional, and so consistent that their worst nights were excellent and their best were tremendous. Innocent Victimreleased in November"had a slight edge on Firefly " according to Box, but still in retrospect this " In Germany the album sold over a million copies and became Uriah Heep's most successful, which coincided with the success of the re-released " Lady in Black. In the end ofFallen Angel came out, having completed a hat-trick of studio albums to feature a consistent lineup only the second time in their career that they had done so.
Meanwhile, the relative stability of the Lawton period belied the behind the scenes unrest having to do with Ken Hensley's earning much more than his colleagues. The major rift, though, developed between Hensley and Lawton. Blows writes, "the combination of constant friction between the two resulting in the nearest thing to violence the group had seen and the constant presence of Lawton's wife on the road finally led to the vocalist getting the chop, shortly after playing the Bilzen Festival in Belgium in August Ex- Lone Star John Sloman was brought in, a younger singer who played keyboards and guitar and was, in the words of Box, " Several tracks of the next album had to be re-recorded with a new drummer, Chris Slade of the Manfred Mann's Earth Band.
Conquest LP was released in February worldwide except the United States, where it was never released and received 5 stars from Record Mirror, but, according to Box, "was a difficult album to record" and represented "a confused Heep," even "a mess" in the words of Trevor Bolder. Hensley was very unhappy, primarily with Sloman, and he explained why:. The band had chosen John and I had opposed that decision. He was a good musician and he looked great but I thought he had little going for him vocally.
The way that he interpreted songs were totally different to the way I had written them. I could understand wanting to move on but this was like the difference between Black Sabbath and Gino Vannelli. We weren't addressing our basic problems, in that we weren't re-establishing our musical direction and John definitely wasn't helping us to do that. A meeting at the manager's office concerning the songwriting dissent was the last straw and, in SeptemberHensley quit.
Gregg Dechert, a Canadian who had worked with Sloman in Pulsar, came in and the band went on a date tour of the UK. After that Sloman left, citing musical differences for a reason. Hensley's acrimonious departure left the group in a state of collapse. Box and Bolder visited David Byron with attractive propositions. Bolder, who by that time, " Box remembered, "I locked myself in my flat for two days and drank myself senseless in complete self-pity.
But I somehow managed to pull myself together and consider my options. The band's new vocalist became Peter Goalby of Trapeze fame.
The latter had once auditioned for Uriah Heep and failed, ironically Hensley being the only band member who had supported him as a choice. Produced by Ashley Howe, the Abominog album according to Blows was, "…important…in the way it pulled Heep out of the Seventies and thrust them into the Eighties with determination muscle," even if sounded a bit too American.
Sounds gave it a five star review, the newly established rock magazine Kerrang! Head First Mayproduced again by Ashley Howe who, according to Goalby, became "like the sixth member of the band" followed much in the same vein, pursuing according to AllMusic " Uriah Heep toured the US supporting RushJudas Priest and Def Leppardwhose vocalist Joe Elliot remembered: "They were the best band that we've ever toured with either as a headline or support, because there was no ego, no pretentious kind of stuff.
They were good in as much that we learnt a lot from them. Meanwhile, David Byron died of a heart attack and liver disease on 28 February at the age of Equator March sold poorly, due to the fact that "CBS just did a terrible job getting it into the shops," as Box saw it. Jason Anderson, for one, argues that with this "lackluster" album, high only "in high-schmaltz rating," the band squandered the chance that Portrait gave it.
Totally exhausted and having serious voice problems, Goalby left in November after an Australian tour. American singer Steff Fontaineformerly of Christian metal band Joshuajoined in July but he was criticised for being totally "unprofessional" he missed, for some reason, No Way Out - Royal Fam (2) - Dead End: The Album (CD San Francisco gig and was sacked in September after just one American tour.
Shaw "felt honoured at being invited to join such a legendary band" while for Box "it was like everything falling into place. Ironically, it was this behind the Iron Curtain excursion that did well to re-establish Heep's name back at home.

Touring incessantly, the band issued some compilations of which Rarities from the Bronze Age and The Lansdowne Tapes featuring previously unreleased material from the early s are considered most noteworthy. Still, the first half of the s is regarded even by the Heep fans as "the wilderness years.
The Sea of Light album released in April produced by the band along with Kalle Trapp  was well received and in retrospect is seen as the band's return to form,  the key to success being according to critic Donald A. Guarisco the way it "forsook the ill-judged pop metal stylings of albums like Equator for a return to the gothic-tinged No Way Out - Royal Fam (2) - Dead End: The Album (CD metal style that highlighted classic Uriah Heep albums like Look at Yourself.
