All about Accept

The contribution of Accept Metal music’s defining role in the early ’80s is undeniable and widely accepted. What even their most fanatical fan hardly expected was their massive return literally out of nowhere in 2010, after 14 years without a studio album and with the concert reunion in 2005 in between.


The split between Wolf Hoffmann and Peter Baltes finds the ideal replacement for the lonely wolf Udo Dirkschneider in the person of Mark Tornillo, who is unknown to the general public, and with Andy Sneap as the catalyst in the production, it becomes an instant classic “Blood of the Nations” arrives in August 2010 to shake up the traditional metal sound.

Since then, Accept has released three more excellent to astonishing records and has found their rightful place among the industry’s top acts on extensive tours around the globe. They return to our country on the occasion of their concert Thursday, July 19th, as part of the Rockwave FestivalWe have been collecting yours and ours over the past few years and are bringing them to you immediately.
