Ken recorded videos for each track on the album during lockdown and said – “I’ve never done anything like this before and, to the best of my knowledge, I don’t recall anybody else doing this before, with a video for every song on the album.”
Steve Weltman, Ken’s manager and friend says: “This is a vintage Hensley track so do give it a listen”
The Cold Sacrifice is the third track to be released from My Book Of Answers. The track is taken from Ken’s collaboration with Russian fan Vladimir Emelin whose poems have been turned into an album’s worth of songs, a series of videos and a concert film.

About Ken Hensley
Ken Hensley was one of the most important musicians over the past fifty years. His work with Uriah Heep in the 1970s helped to make the band hugely influential. Hensley was Uriah Heep’s keyboard player and principal song writer, responsible for such classics as Lady In Black, Easy Livin’ and Look At Yourself, and providing them with much of their musical direction. Leaving the band in 1980 to pursue a solo career, he also collaborated with Florida-based hard rock band Blackfoot, L.A. heavy metal band W.A.S.P. and Cinderella. “Ken Hensley wrote the rule book for heavy metal keyboards as far as I’m concerned,” W.A.S.P.’s frontman Blackie Lawless is quoted as saying.
Following his departure from Uriah Heep, Hensley lived in America where he met his wife-to-be Monica. The Hensley’s settled on a farm near Alicante, Spain, and married in 2004. A very spiritual person, Hensley became an inspiration to many and known for encouraging talented artists and enjoyed the love and respect of fans the world over. “It’s enduring and I’m happy that most of them are still alive!” he said. “I love to meet them when I go out on the road but at the moment that’s not possible.”
Hensley’s solo career began in 1973 with Proud Words On A Dusty Shelf, and Ken remained as busy and prolific as ever, with a career that spanned sales in excess of 45 million albums. Hensley worked with leading artists across the globe and he became known as an inspiration for encouraging other talented artists.
