Accept – Stalingrad – 2012

I think that more people than med was surprised when Accept released a new album – Blood of the Nations 2010. By then they had been kinda silent for 14 years. At least they hadn’t released anything during that time. I also think that we were a lot of people being surprised how good that comeback album was. We wanted more! At least I did! And 2012 we got more. That was the year Stalingrad...

Accept – Russian Roulette – 1986

My love for Accepts definite breakthrough album Balls to the Wall at the time made me buy a few more albums by Accept. I still have Russian Roulette on vinyl somewhere but I can’t say that I listen to it very often änymore. At least not on vinyl. But it was, more or less, Udo Dirkscheider’s last album with the band. Ok, they had a reunion a few years later and a couple of other...

Accept – Eat the Heat – 1989

If you want the traditional Accept sound you might as well skip Eat the Heat. It’s not really a bad album, it just doesn’t sound like Accept. Another singer didn’t really fit the sound. It’s ok to have on in the background but nothing to really dig into. At least not for me. Eat the Heat is a minor album in the Accept legacy. But there are plenty of other Hardrock albums from those days...

Accept – Balls to the Wall -1983

Balls to the Wall was one of the first Hardrock/Metal albums that really got to me. It was exciting back in the day and it still has that nerve that gets to you. It’s still really good and has aged very well! Musically I would like to include them in NWOBHM but since they’re from Germany and not Britain that will be a problem. Besides, New Wave of British Heavy Metal is more of a...

Accept – 2017 – The Rise of Chaos

If you’ve hear the last few albums from Accept then The Rise of Chaos won’t come as a surprise to you. You will recognize the sound and I think it’ll be highly unlikely that you’ll dislike the album. Since Accept “re-formed” or what you should call it in 2010 and the Blood of the Nations album, they have always done very nice work. The guitars have been as groovy as ever and the background vocals...

Blood on the Nations 0

Accept – Blood of the Nations – 2010

There are some epithets that have stayed with Accept for (almost) all years of the band’s active history. At least that was the case when I first wrote this text some years ago. Back then Blood of the Nations was new and it was almost unimaginable that anyone could take over the charismatic vocal duties from Udo Dirkschneider. But that was then. Today Mark Tornillo is the obvious singer of the band and I wouldn’t...
