"Heepsteria 2" will be either a single or a dbl CD with songs performed by Heep fans in various bands all over the world as a tribute CD to Uriah Heep following up the success of the first Uriah Heep tribute CD Heepsteria.

NB!!! Deadline is passed, and we cannot accept more songs except for the oustanding songs that are not submitted according to the agreement with the producer of the CD!!

General Rules and Conditions:

1. IMPORTANT!! The recordings and performances must be of good quality and standard of performance , i.e. recorded in a studio with decent equipment and submitted in digital format by the deadline date which is now End December 2004. There's no guarantee that every song sent in will be in the tribute CD!

2. A Maximum of 2 songs per band.

3. No song can be performed more than once. It's not allowed to choose songs used in the first "Heepsteria" CD either. The song list for "Heepsteria" is shown at the bottom of this page.

4. Requests for songs will be taken on a first come, first served basis however the progress of the recordings will be monitored and if cannot be completed on time then the song will be made available to be performed by another band .

5. Any disputed songs will be decided upon mutually between the bands, myself and/or the producer.

6. The final decision on all tracks will be decided by the Red Steel Music (the Producer). Hence if there are too many songs for filling up a single CD, the producer must select and leave out some songs!

7. It is not a requirement that the songs are performed exactly in the same style as Uriah Heep does. This will allow each band to perform the songs using their own interpretation of the music. Have fun as well recording the Heep !!

Personal advice:

1. Play the songs in the key that suits your singer. Do not necessarily play the songs in the same key as Heep do.

2. Electric instuments are not mandatory. It would be great if few songs could be recorded e.g. unplugged as long as point 1 in the rules section above is fullfilled. See also point 7.

3. Those of you who have selected large scale songs, please limit them down to sensible length and do not enlarge them unnecessarily due to space limit on the disks. There will be lots of songs sent in.

How to join:

Not possible any more. Closed!.

How and where to send your CD/DAT:

The CD/DAT must be labelled with information on band name, song title and time! TIME MUST BE ADDED to ease the producer's work. The producer can possibly IGNORE all CDs/DATs which haven't got time on them!!!

Send your CD/DAT (I prefer CD myself!) to:
Per Rannug,
Brusletta 28,
N-2016 Frogner,

NB! I can make link to your band's home page under the band name if you give me the URL!
