Extended ACCEPT REVIEW of their headliner Show at Bang your Head in Germany in BURRN! October 2015 Issue. JAPAN fans are hoping to see ACCEPT again!
By Oystein Mangseth
Accept have done it again, delivered a concert out of this world. The band was in great shape and looked like they had a great time, the new guys really fit in and are doing a excellent job. The only thing I can put my finger on is that the set should have been longer. When they came off stage the crowd kept singing Balls to the wall as they walked home and I heard a lot of them saying that Accept was the best band today.
A crowd in excess of 18.000 people awaited Accept at their biggest festival show ever in Spain. And the band delivered. Drawing from a wealth of classic metal songs that can raise the dead, Accept were arguably the most powerful classic band at the festival. Yes, they may have a long carreer, but they have managed to reinvent themselves with the last three albums and remain up to date. Classics is what people sing, but new songs are what keep them fresh and they delivered a good mixture of both. From the opening salvo of “Stampede” until the closing with “Balls to the Wall” they played a set that was balanced and intense at the same time, with plenty of guitar solo faces from Wolf Hoffmann, old school raspiness from Mark Tornillo and a refurbished rhythm section where only Peter Baltes remains from the classic line-up and newcomers Uwe Lulis on drums and Christopher Williams on guitar showed that they deserve their place in the band.
