It goes without saying that a new album in any genre of music will leave a satisﬁed audience craving tour dates. German metal legends Accept’s most recent album, 2014’s Blind Rage, has delighted their fans, as has the tour for the album—if you were fortunate enough to catch it. They did not quite cover enough ground in the United States, but those of you who missed them this time, and those of you who are still hungry for more of the band’s performances, can take comfort in the release of the Restless and Live video and album on January 13, 2017. This DVD captures Accept’s outstanding performance as headliners of the German festival Bang Your Head in July 2015. As soon as the band rushes to the stage to kick into “Stampede”, you know you’re getting the heaviness and
conviction that you want out of an Accept show. Read the full review here.
Few could have predicted the huge success that greeted the return of German Metal masters Accept, the veteran genre leaders riding the crest of a wave since their 2010 comeback album ‘Blood Of Nations’. With their most recent release, ‘Blind Rage’, reaching the top of the charts in their homeland – the band’s first to gain that honour – and a stunning live bluray/DVD/CD release set to start 2017 in impressive style, guitarist Wolf Hoffmann settles down with Fireworks to give an honest and open account of his band’s many years and counting.
Full Metal Mountain is a great idea! Imagine that you are skiing down the alps, you stop at a bierstube for a beer and there is a band there playing metal……
And at night you are among other metalheads in the main tent drinking beer and listening to your favorite bands. The atmosphere in Tropolach is just electric and everybody I spoke to said it had been an unforgettable week.
I spend two days there and the highlight was of course the ACCEPT concert Saturday night which also was the last show of the festival.
ACCEPT came on stage about 22.30 with the pounding “Stampede” and from there and on the audience was with them. From the new classic Stalingrad through some old classics like London Leatherboys and Restless & Wild they were impressive as always giving 110%. The cool thing about this show is that they played more “new” songs than old and that says a lot about the quality of the new songs for a band with that many classics from the eighties. The show had not a boring moment just a lot of highlights like Peter and Wolf’s “battle” and the solo on Fast As A Shark where Wolf and Uwe are brilliant. And Mark’s voice really fit the songs perfect.
After a short break Christopher fires up the audience to a last effort and when the encores comes with Metal Heart and Balls to The Wall the night is complete.
They thank the crowd as Bound To Fail fades out after a perfect end to a great week in the Austrian mountains.
