Title: Tattooed On My BrainLabel: Frontiers Music Srl
it comes to standing the test of time, no one can argue that
Scotland’s Nazareth aren’t one of those bands.
Here we have a band celebrating their 50th
anniversary this year and with this comes the band’s 24th
studio album. Yes
folks that’s right, 24th!
a world where music has become a throw away commodity with
today’s youth, the older rock fans still are keeping this
music alive and Nazareth are showing the new breed of bands
that longevity is real thing.
band new album ‘Tattooed on My Brain’ is purebred
Nazareth and the first to feature new vocalist Carl Sentance
(ex-Persian Risk, Don Airey), who has the big boots of Dan
McCafferty to fill after he left the band in 2014.
Sentance joins guitarist Jimmy Murrison, drummer Lee Agnew
and founding member Pete Agnew on Bass for an album that
sure has plenty of kick and energy to it.

album may not have McCafferty at the helm but Sentance is
the perfect replacement, as he keeps that same classic rock
vocal running throughout the album, as opener ‘Never Dance
With The Devil’ really shows.
classic Nazareth feel continues with the storming title
track and the current single the ballsy ‘State of
great tracks include the excellent funky rocker ‘Pole to
Pole’, the bluesy ‘The Secret is Out’ and the pumped
up rocker ‘Crazy Molly’ just to name a few.
Guns N' Roses once included a cover of Nazareth's 'Hair of the Dog' on their album 'The Spaghetti Incident', well believe me, when they hear this little beauty of a release they'll be wishing they could cover some of these tracks as well!
Like the big man from Nazareth himself, the band have risen once again and are ready to spread the word, Nazareth are back and ready to rock!
