Nazareth. Basic Heavy metal from the 70 ths,
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
One of the first record i bought back when i was 12 years old was a Nazareth album called Hair of the Dog (the title song is on this album)and the cover just blew me away. This introduction to heavy metal gave me nightmares for years. Anyway this greatest hits give you a introduction to a band with an old Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison song called Love Hurts(also on this album)on their resyme. Its the biggest hit on the norwegian hit list ever. Belive it or not. It was 60 weeks on the list. It reached number 8 in USA, but it never reached the list in UK. My favorite track on this album is Razamanaz. Nazareth is still touring, and Dan Mc Cafferty still sings. Back in the 70 this was what we called
Heavy Metal, and we can hear the vocal, and the riffs on the guitar has something to say to us teenagers back then This album is worth a try if your curious what kind of a band Nazareth is or
"was". This was before they come up with earfriendly "soft metal".
