After sneak peeks and a frustrating delay in the release no one was more excited than me for the brand new ACCEPT album, Blind Rage. After back-to-back home runs with Blood of the Nations and Stalingrad I was very excited to see if this band could three-peat.
Of course I have certainly been asked.Unfortunately Wolf is telling everybody that he has never been in touch with me, though I can show you tons of e.mails. I have been asked about rejoining for a reunion and didn’t directly say no.I did it already once and there was a lot of shit happened. I then said “OK guys if I do this then I want to have this and this..Wolf then said that he didn’t want to do it, so I said “Goodbye, thank you very much and good luck
The intensity of the music is what gets the record flowing with a charge from the onset. Marshall does a great job of laying down some dominating heavy metal/power metal riffage and lyrics that people like Rob Rock and UDO could just run away with. It shows on the opening track “Cry Out” which is led by a classic Rob Rock proving why he’s the king of melodic metal.
True fans will know that there is far more to this legendary German band. There have been three different singers and a few line-up changes otherwise over the years, but at the heart of the music was always terribly underrated guitarist Wolf Hoffman and bassist Peter Baltes.
