These Teutonic Terror men show no signs of burning out! – Dead Rhetoric

These Teutonic Terror men show no signs of burning out! – Dead Rhetoric

accept FINAL 3 flat OIL

You only get one chance to make a reunion impression, and the stakes are high in the case of Accept. 2010’s Blood of the Nations certainly put the current multi-continent act back on the map (three-fifths of the group currently spend most of their off time in the USA), and two years laterStalingrad solidified their headline status in traditional heavy metal. What can the troops rally around this third time w/Mark Tornillo at the microphone helm?

The greatest anthems in their catalog have always thrived on melody of some sort: be it the classical touches in the guitar (“Metal Heart”), twin harmonies (“Fast as a Shark”), or those thunderous mid-tempo riffs coupled with gang chant choruses made to scream in unison at the top of your burning lungs (“Balls to the Wall”). So it’s not surprising after a few playbacks that these 12 songs work off of that template, honing in a little deeper on the right hook/riff combinations that please traditional and classic power metal followers all over the world.

The first single/video “Stampede” has a slight up-tempo punch in the verses, Mark screaming his head off while the Hoffmann/Frank duo circle around their Flying V wagons in a thick steamroller of power chord/ tasteful lead break expertise. As the album unfolds, you’ll hear those unique Accept nuances, be it the simple note enhancement that signals the chorus of “Dark Side of My Heart,” or the mighty, epic riff that along with the background ‘ahh… ahhh-ahhh-ahhhhhh’ vocals makes the 5:58 “Fall of the Empire” resonate for those who love classics like “Princess of the Dawn,” Wolf again tearing up the emotive lead part through classic bluesy textures that recall 60’s/70’s axe mentors Hendrix and Blackmore.

When there are commercial aspects, they come in the form of Peter’s classic bass pumping for “Wanna Be Free” or the semi “Restless and Wild” guitar/drum gallop for “200 Years,” but this is Accept 100% through and through. Another stellar production job from Andy Sneap, as he has given the band the necessary ripe tones to appeal to both the old guard and the younger generation. And there’s no sense in debating Udo versus Mark vocally at this point, just enjoy the fact that both are healthy, continually productive in their golden age, and we can benefit from two acts churning out European style traditional metal to the masses. Another smile creeps across my face as at 3:27 of closer “Blind Journey” you’ll hear Wolf infuse another classical melody tribute effortlessly a la “Metal Heart,” understanding the parallels between the two styles.

Overall, Blind Rage gives you an hour’s worth of fervent head banging material, and given their recent Wacken performance this year, these Teutonic Terror men show no signs of burning out!

Thank you Dead Rhetoric!

I admit that I Solingen steel forging have never touched so deeply in the past, as otherwise a large part of the local metal scene. Of course, “Restless And Wild” About one album and “Balls To The Wall” is not a no brainer, but generally I always found Accept a trail to ‘German’. When the band after all the trials and tribulations to their old charismatic singer Udo Dirkschneider after a long hiatus in 2010 with Mark Tornillo on the microphone and the album “Blood Of The Nations” drove back to light, I had the chance, with guitarist and Mastermind Wolf Hoffmann to talk about the new Accept. He said in part: “All signs point to storm!” How right he was. Any reservations about the new cast are already wiped with two strong albums from the table, with “Blind Rage” definitive proof now comes that today Accept authority and endure. Here there is everything that makes the group distinctive. Powerful metal anthems, endless Drive and Power, masterful guitar work, which repeatedly generates classically tinged melodies, the typical Woh-Hoh Hoh-choruses in the right place and with the vocals of Mark Tornillo finally convincing international paint. Also, the speculative as yet in “Stalingrad” has completely disappeared, leaving a classic, timeless masterpiece of heavy metal that will last for many years. Every damn song on this disc is a winner. It starts with the rapid entry “Stampede”, reaches with the supported “Fall Of The Empire” with his successful guitar solo in the style of Ritchie Blackmore its first peak, interspersed with “From The Ashes We Rise” a confident statement and finds with “Final Journey “a crashing end. Here skin Wolf Hoffmann Studies of Edvard Grieg with pure that it only seems like dizzy. Tip! And above all this hovers a striking atmosphere of kindness, friendship and sympathy. Nothing there with Wutbürger, as elsewhere hawked. We are talking a lot more about solidarity and preservation of true values. But above all, for a lot of tradition-metallic fun! Anyway. “Blind Rage” is a serious candidate for going as one of the best metal albums of the year across the finish line.

Thank you My Revelations!
