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.
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’.
STAYING A LIFE is a double live album by Accept, released in 1990. It was recorded in Osaka, Japan, in 1985. It was released in 1990, shortly after the band's first breakup. It was mixed by Uli Baronowsky at Dierks Studios, Stommeln. Live footage from the 1985–1986 world tour was released in VHS also in 1990, with the same title and cover art.
EAT THE HEAT is the eighth studio album by German heavy metal band Accept, released in 1989. It was recorded at Dierks-Studios, in Cologne, from September 1988 to January 1989. Although Jim Stacey is presented as rhythm guitar player in the album line-up, the album credits also state that all guitar work on the album was played by Wolf Hoffmann. Jim Stacey did perform second guitar live with the band.
DIRKSCHNEIDER, the band fronted by former ACCEPT and current U.D.O. singer Udo Dirkschneider, will release a live album called "Live - Back To The Roots" on October 28 via AFM Records. The effort, which was recorded on April 2 at Kaminwerk in Memmingen, Germany, will be made available as two-CD digipak. Dirkschneider's "Back To The Roots" tour features him performing ACCEPT songs one last time before he closes the chapter for good. The trek was recently recognized with a "Sold Out" award after 31 of the 48 European shows were sold out. "It's unbelievable, " says Udo. "I never expected this tour to be so successful. It's beautiful to see how many people walk with me on my personal way of saying goodbye to the ACCEPT chapter."
