When heavy metal titans ACCEPT returned to the stage in 2009, nobody knew that this reunion would also lead to a union of older and younger metal generations, nor that guitar matador Wolf Hoffmann and his fellows were just starting the most successful chapter of their band’s history. After nearly seven years, countless live sensations and three successful albums, with »Blind Rage« even achieving #1 in the official German charts, it is time: ACCEPT have bundled the energy, the rage and the thunderstorm of their 40-year career into a new live DVD, for the first time since their comeback. This result, with its catchy title »Restless And Live« will be launched on January 13th on Blu-ray and DVD, each equipped with two CDs…
The long-awaited live album from Dirkschneider's 'Back To The Roots' was released on October 28th via AFM Records. The singer with the charismatic voice had his musical breakthrough with ACCEPT in the early 80s. 'It's still so much fun to sing these songs live, they are a part of my biography, but nevertheless it's about time to turn that page. There was so much talking and speculations about me and ACCEPT, so this is kind of a musical statement from my end - which seems to be very interesting for the fans who came to these shows'. The album 'LIVE - Back To The Roots' has been recorded at the sold out show at 'Kaminwerk' in Memmingen on April 2nd, 2016…
This live album, recorded in various locations around the world, has Accept playing various material throughout their career. The first disc has their older 80's stuff and songs off of Objection Overruled. Also, it has "Too High to Get It Right", which wasn't on their previous live release, so that was cool to hear. The second disc focuses on their Death Row album. This album once again has Accept playing as a four-piece, but a lot of the songs that they recorded live were originally recorded with five members.
BLOOD OF THE NATIONS is the twelfth studio album by German heavy metal band Accept. It is the band's first studio recording since 1996's Predator and the first album to feature vocalist Mark Tornillo and drummer Stefan Schwarzmann. It is the first Accept album without Udo Dirkschneider on vocals since Eat the Heat (1989), and the band's the first album to feature guitarist Herman Frank since Balls to the Wall (1983). Accept returned in 2010 with this superb slap of heavy metal. There is a definite old school vibe to the music, just as there should be. New singer Mark Tornillo is the ace in the sleeve. He has an excellent, raw voice that fits the music.
Accept's "All Areas – Worldwide" captures the Teutonic heavy metal legends firing on stage on all cylinders. Featuring live recordings made on their 1993 "Objection Overruled" tour and 1994 "Death Row" tour, this is a unique snapshot of a band at their peak, reunited with inimitable vocalist Udo Dirkschneider. "All Areas – Worldwide" also serves as an impressive live greatest hits collection, featuring the classics ‘London Leatherboys’, ‘Breaker’, ‘Princess Of The Dawn’, ‘Restless And Wild’, ‘Son Of A Bitch’, ‘Metal Heart’, ‘Fast As A Shark’ plus an epic 11 minute version of ‘Balls To The Wall’.
PREDATOR is the eleventh studio album by German heavy metal band Accept, released in 1996. It was produced by Michael Wagener and recorded at 16th Ave. Sound Studios, Nashville, Tennessee. Predator was Accept's last album before their hiatus from 1997, and their last recording with singer Udo Dirkschneider.
DEATH ROW is the tenth studio album by German heavy metal band Accept, released in 1994. It was recorded at Roxx Studios. Stefan Kaufmann was still the official drummer for Accept, but drums on "Bad Habits Die Hard" and "Prejudice" are by Stefan Schwarzmann according to the liner notes. Stefan Kaufmann had to leave the band for the subsequent tour because of health problems, and Stefan Schwarzmann then handled drum duties.
