Against all the odds, Nazareth’s 25th album sees the band continue along the (long) path they started trekking back in 1968. The band has been around for a long time, and has had its fair share of departures, illnesses (Dan McCafferty, the original singer, retired in 2013 due to health issues), and death (drummer Darrell Sweet died of a heart attack mid-tour in 1999 at just 51 years old). Only their bassist, Pete Agnew, has had his name on the credits for fifty years. His son, Lee, joined the band as a drummer in 1999. It’s hard to imagine a rhythm section that’s more tightly knit: natural rhythm clearly runs in the family.

The Nazareth of 2022 doesn’t sound remotely nostalgic, and it’s clear that this isn’t the quartet’s primary concern. This is proven by Yann Rouiller’s incredible production which sees the band venture from their Scottish roots to a more American sound. Similarly, Carl Sentance (ex-member of Persian Risk and the Geezer Butler Band who joined Nazareth in 2015) has a voice reminiscent of well-known American singers such as Jack Russell (Great White) and Axl Rose (FYI, Nazareth is one of the Guns N’ Roses singer’s favourite bands). Far from covering the same old ground for decades, this Scottish group offer an inspired, contemporary take on hard rock. Nothing is wasted, and their sound still competes with much younger bands (just as well, since there aren’t many older bands out there to compete with). Their career has been discreet and they haven’t engaged in many crazy antics. Perhaps that’s why they are still in perfect musical form: the guys still have all their neurons.

Nazareth clearly still have a lot to give, and with albums like Surviving the Law, we’re not keen for them to throw in the towel. To release great music for more than half a century is a miracle—hats off to them. © Charlélie Arnaud/Qobuz

Guns N' Roses, the greed justifies the means

As the sales of the legendary Appetite For Destruction approach the 20 million copies in the United States, who remembers today that it almost never saw the light of day? Not only the bonds uniting Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler were fragile, but fate seemed set against this band which seemed to be slow to catch on to Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella or Dokken. This is almost as a kindness that David Geffen had accepted to welcome this homeless band on his label. He would not regret his altruism…

Interpol, Fade to Black

At the dawn of the new millennium, when garage was king, the New York quartet that then became a trio exploded onto the scene by reviving the dark romanticism of 80’s post-punk.
