NAZARETH – bassist Pete Agnew and vocalist Carl Sentance

August 12th, 2017

Nazareth is a Scottish hard rock band formed in 1968. In the early 1970s, the band had many hit songs in Europe. They achieved international success with their 1975 album HAIR OF THE DOG, which included the hits “Hair of the Dog” and the ballad “Love Hurts.” The band has now released 23 studio albums, and they still continue to record and tour around the world. The current line-up consists of the band’s founding member and bassist Pete Agnew, long-time guitarist Billy Morrison, Pete’s son Lee Agnew on drums and vocalist Carl Sentence, who joined the band in 2015. On next year, the band celebrates its 50th anniversary, so it was good to sit down with Pete and Carl and discuss their celebration and other future plans.

May 10th, 2015




Welsh singer Carl Sentance began his musical career in 1975 when he founded his first band Leading Star. In 1980, he replaced John Deverill as singer NWOBHM band Persian Risk. The band broke up in 1986, and later Sentance worked with several bands including Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler’s solo band, a former UFO guitarist Paul Chapman, and the Swiss Krokus, with whom he recorded a TOTAL of 13 in 1999. In 2006, Sentance teamed up with Deep Purple’s keyboard player Don Airey. So far they have released three albums, the latest, KEYED UP, was released in 2014. Sentence’s first solo album, MIND DOCTOR, was published in 2008; musical guests include Airey and Thunder rhythm section of Harry James and Chris Childs. Persian Risk returned with a new line-up in 2012, and later in the same year, the band released ONCE A KING. In February 2015 it was announced that Sentance had joined to the legendary Scottish Nazareth, replacing Linton Osbourne who in turn had replaced the band’s original vocalist Dan McGafferty just a year earlier. We met  Sentance in Hämeenlinna, Finland, just before his first performance with Nazareth.

Nazareth – Big Dogz

July 1st, 2011

Nazareth – Big Dogz

2011, Eagle Records

Rating: 3/5

Classic Rockers Nazareth return to the spotlight with BIG DOGZ. This album of all brand new originals showcases the talent within the band and that after several decades in the business they still have what it takes to release a solid Rock record. For those out there that are unfamiliar with their music outside of the standard ‘Hits’ are in for a treat.

Apart from their more popular Rock songs and their ballad “Dream On” (which was covered by Helix) I too am quite unfamiliar with their catalog of music. Listening to BIG DOGZ was quite a pleasure for the most part. It takes a few spins to get into but once you do it is a fairly solid and consistent album. If you are expecting to hear a “Hair Of The Dog” or “Razamanaz” then you may be slightly let down. This album is more laid back and slightly more mellow overall. The high energy anthems of yesteryear are gone and replaced by a more ‘mature’ sound while still maintaining some of the heaviness. McCafferty’s vocals are a little bit more rough then they used to be a decade ago but generally that is expected. His voice is similar to AC/DC’s Brian Johnson but you can understand the words.

Different from the Nazareth that we all still hear on Classic Rock Radio but not too different that it would alienate their fans. A solid Rock n Roll album that is worth a listen.
