Accept
« on: October 20, 2016, 02:45:20 PM »
German metal band Accept gained popularity during the 80's metal scene, which is why I'm putting them here. Their beginning, however goes back much further and their actual professional career began around 1976 with the lineup of Udo Dirkschneider, Wolf Hoffman, Gerhard Wahl, Dieter Rubach, and Frank Friedrich.  Their first stable lineup included the aforementioned with the addition of Peter Baltes (replacing Rubach) released their self titled debut in 1979. Friedrich and Wahl quit the band after this release and were replaced by Stefan Kaufmann  and Jorg Fischer. This lineup recorded I'm a Rebel in 1980. In 1981 they released Breaker. restless and Wild released in 1982 saw the band moving into a more speed metal direction. With Herman frank now onboard in the band they released their most popular record Balls to the wall in 1983, followed by Metal Heart (1985), and Russian Roulette (1986). In 1987 Udo pursued a solo career, which eventually would see him leave the band and new American vocalist David Reece joined the band and they released Eat the heat in 1989. By late 1989 the band went on hiatus.

The band reunited with Udo from 1992 through 1996. objection overruled was their comeback album released in 1993 and Death Row followed in 1994, and Predator in 1996. In 1997 the band went on a second hiatus only briefly reunited the classic lineup in 2005 for a short European festival tour.

In 2009 it was announced that the band would return featuring new vocalist Mark Tornillo (TT Quick) Blood of the Nations was released to widespread critical acclaim. Stalingrad was then released in 2012, followed by Blind Rage in 2014. At the end of 2014 guitarist Herman Frank had decided to leave the band and shortly thereafter drummer Stefan Schwarzmann also departed.

The current lineup consists of:
Wolf Hoffman - guitars
Peter Baltes- bass
Mark Tornillo- Vocals
Uwe Lulis- guitars
Christopher Williams- drums

These guys sound as great as ever with Tornillo on vocals.

Here's a few from Stalingrad (2012) much like Blood of the nations, this whole damn album is pretty good.

These guys are on one hell of a three album run of great material, this long into their career and with a new singer, something Queensryche will be also trying to accomplish with their third release with LaTorre next year.

I think he sounds a lot like Udo, and in some cases a lot like AC/DC. A definite shift in their songwriting from a lyrical standpoint but I dig it, more along the lines of a Manowar or Dio yeah agreed.

New live dvd/cd package out January 13, 2017 on Nuclear Blast "Restless and Live" recorded at 2015 Bang Your Head Festival in Germany. Here's a preview.

Sounds awesome, this looks like a must have  8) can't wait to hear the rest. Man, what a perfect choice for vocalist of this band Mark Tornillo was. Dude kills it.

Accept set to release Symphonic Terror live at Wacken 2017. This looks and sounds pretty awesome. There's a clip of the song breaker in the article for a little taste of it. They sound great here.
