It’s always quiet just before the storm!!!! ACCEPT’s fifteen year break from the music business only served as a distant warning to the 2010 thunderous return of ACCEPT to the metal forefront. Sweat soaked, table-sized club shows and triumphant appearances at the biggest rock festivals around the world created an excitement long not seen in the metal community. It was only natural that ACCEPT’s comeback album Blood Of The Nations entered the charts at #4, the band’s highest entry in their legendary career! In addition, Blood Of The Nations charted high in countless other countries and cemented itself at #1 in many Reader Polls for a continuous 14 months! Accolades like “Album of the Year”, “Metal Anthem of the Year” and many more kept pouring in. The fans, in admiration of their heroes, flocked in the thousands to their notorious live shows, and Nuclear Blast, their record company, was salivating with satisfaction!Inspired by their fans’ awe-inspiring reaction to their explosive live shows as well as the grandiose success of the comeback album, the band is now excited to jump right back into the studio and record another collection of heavy metal classics. To be called Stalingrad, the new ACCEPT album is scheduled to be released via Nuclear Blast Records in the spring of 2012. It will once again be produced by English star producer Andy Sneap who has long become a part of the ACCEPT family.As the saying goes… no rest for the wicked! Following the release of Stalingrad, ACCEPT will continue their unstoppable, teutonic terror in 2012 and beyond, invading stages from North to South, from East to West, leaving all nonbelievers in their metallic dust!
“Blind Rage” is Accept doing what Accept do best, powerhouse riff-laden melodic heavy metal. If it ain’t broken…don’t fix it. Easily a contender for album of the year.
Blind Rage is another strong addition to their canon, one fans of hard rock, thrash, and classic metal should be sure to check out.
Brilliant Video Review of ACCEPT BLIND RAGE By Coverkiller Nation, A fantastic display of pacing, songwriting and overall finesse.
First it was the Bulls, then the Lakers, and now ACCEPT. All of them can proudly list a three-peat on their résumés!!
Easily one of the top releases of the summer and this year and definitely a record that every metal fan should have!
It’s heavy metal at its purest and very best – you can’t help but keep on headbanging. Highly recommended. HardrockHaven.net
Blind Rage sees Accept continuing their march toward righteous, well-earned domination of the metal world. Metal Blast
Echoes and Dust – If you call yourself a heavy metal fan then you really don’t have any excuse at all for not listening to this.
