Sanctuary Boxing clever.
When Raging Silence was released in 1989 Heep were so pleased by the reaction they sent one writer a framed copy of his review. Certainly I was impressed by their strident treatment of the old Argent hit Hold Your Head Up which kicked off a bold, bright album.
Many aeons had passed since their Very ’Eavy... debut, yet Heep had been invigorated by the new sound of bands like Bon Jovi and Mick Box (guitar) and Bernie Shaw (vocals) responded with attacking tunes like Voice On My TV and Rich Kid . Repacked with seven bonus tracks Raging Silence still sounds good. As does Different World from 1990, which has such goodies as Blood On Stone . The album’s evolution is described in some informative sleevenotes by Classic Rock ’s Dave Ling.
