Fact is: UK has been very much the plateau from where ACCEPT took off. The metaphor HEAVY METAL has just been invented, when an unknown 5 piece bunch of wild Germans got the amazing chance to open up for JUDAS PRIEST...The newly crowned METAL GODS! No one was prepared for the surprise: Something was going on with that opener - the Brits gave them a very warm welcome and the band gave stunning performances. From than on, ACCEPT with the support of KERRANG! the hippest Metal Magazine on the planet and a world wide audience - now called METAL FANS made History and that was the year - 1981! Times have changed, Fans grew up and ACCEPT had a fascinating run over the decades. However, it was and is Malcom Dome, KERRANG! and BLOODSTOCK who got the band ACCEPT back in 2013 presenting their anthems and their back to back newest albums BLOOD OF THE NATIONS & STALINGRAD (both album of the year in most countries they toured since 2010 and - of course - their unforgettable classics. You know them, you sceeam and raise your firsts and...they hit you back with their powerful stage performance. Got to be a bloody massacre...
After 3 years of great success, with their internationally acclaimed 2 consecutive ALBUMS OF THE YEAR under their belt and intense touring, 2013 will see ACCEPT doing FESTIVALS and only a few shows in between. Wolf & Peter were asked at the Namm show in L.A. a few days ago what is next for them, they answered: We want to gocrazy this summer and enjoy wild Metal Festivals. We absolutely lve them! Normally it is like a family reunion, as we see not only the fans again, but also our musician friends and catch up with the latest. Always great fun! Since 2005, when the Metal Gods blessed Kavarna and named it the Rock and Roll city, KAVARNA ROCK FEST became an epic event with flaming stages, near to the Black Sea coast. Eight years of pure Heavy Metal, the festival featured such metallers as HELLOWEEN, KREATOR, MOTORHEAD, ALICE COOPER, DORO…and the voice of METAL, Ronnie James Dio and DEEP PURPLE this year in 2013! When ACCEPT headlined the 2010 KAVARNA ROCK FEST, it turned out to be an event which the bad and their fans could never forget. And now, ACCEPT will come back again to headline the first night of KAVARNA ROCK FEST 2013 on June 1st. The mighty Bulgarian Metalheads will celebrate the powerful riffs of ACCEPT and ten thousand voices will scream at the top of their lungs - some storms and ground shaking is guaranteed!

The gig will be on NOVEMBER 17th - SAN JOSE - COSTA RICA - PEPPERS CLUB.
Hello metalheads from Costa Rica, can't wait to see you!
A true marriage of great wine meeting great metal. This project was actually talked about last year at the famous Rainbow Bar and Grill in Los Angeles on the Sunset Strip. How Rock ‘N Roll is that?
When I met with the band I was bombarded with the places that they have traveled to. The different foods that they experienced and the beverages that comforted them on the road. We all decided that this wine project does not replace the concert t-shirt. This is a true wine experience and will not disappoint those whom love wine already. Accept never does anything short, especially if it is a product that is offered to the fans. So therefore, the fruit for Wolfsblut comes from the world famous, Napa Valley.
The hillside vineyards for this wine are sustainably farmed. The barrel aging process is 100% French oak. Like I said, no short cuts.This is a wonderful food wine that would go well with any of any of your pasta dishes but feel free to challenge it with a thick, medium-rare steak. Most important of all this wine, with it’s layers of blueberry, cherry and vanilla can easily be enjoyed by itself.
Pop the cork and be prepared to howl at the moon!
Petite Fleur Winery, Napa Valley
Germany's most rejuvenated Metal act returns with a vengeance for their second album on one of the best comeback routes of all time.

The 'new' ACCEPT, meaning the post-Udo albums, “Blood Of The Nations” and, now, “Stalingrad” show the band more scathing, seething and down right dirty than any of the 'old' ACCEPT albums.

Checking in from Hamburg, Germany on their current European tour, guitarist Wolf Hoffman responds to the Billboard chart news:
“What a roller coaster ride! From the minute we started ACCEPT in 2010 with Mark Tornillo until today, we are in awe! The fans worldwide have spoken and they’ve let us know that we matter for them. Never in a lifetime could we have expected the true and deep love we get, wherever we go. To enter the charts – again, with Stalingrad our new release – is a huge gift for us and we are more than grateful and very well aware that we could never have done that without the hottest metal label on the planet: NUCLEAR BLAST! They gave us home and their backing is huge. But not only everybody at Nuclear Blast are doing such a great job: We have a Management, a crew, and superb professionals around us who gave us confidence and strength and we are trying to show our appreciation by being the best ACCEPT we can. We give you everything, every night! Greetings for Germany, where we play packed houses… See ya on tour – wherever you are!”
Grandiose riffs, magnificently chanted choruses, classically inspired solos, haunting refrains and rasped vocals are the legendary ACCEPT traits captured once again by producer Andy Sneap (EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY, MEGADETH, HELL) and brought to extreme front-and-center on Stalingrad. With both eyes closed, one can instantaneously and indisputably smell the formidable mix of leather, sweat, and euphoria. This is what classic heavy metal feels & sounds like in 2012!

ACCEPT have achieved what few had predicted! With ‘Blood of the Nations’, they returned to the pantheon of heavy metal after a lengthy absence with a remarkable album. ‘Blood of the Nations” was a triumphant achievement that couldn’t have been any more successful or better received by fans and media alike. “Blood of the Nations” had eclipsed all expectations, being named Album of the Year in over 50 international “Best Of” lists and charted world wide higher than any previous ACCEPT release.
We are now in February 2012. The long running rumors that ACCEPT had started work on a new record last fall turned out to be true. It has been a few weeks since ACCEPT indeed announced the completion of their new album with the title ‘Stalingrad’. And today, on Tuesday, February 28th,ACCEPT will officially unveil the first track as a teaser for their new masterpiece. At 10:00 o’clock, the title track to ‘Stalingrad’ will be available on ACCEPT’s YouTube channel in its entirety.
‘Stalingrad’, the album, will be released in early April. It is already being hailed as the absolute prefect follow-up tot he record-breaking ‚Blood oft he Nations’. The first reviews from the German media are starting to hit the presses hard and fast:
»Blood Of The Nations was ´metal album of the year 2010. ´ Stalingrad is a worthy follow-up!«
ROCK HARD (D) / Götz Kühnemund
»With Stalingrad the veterans show the juniors how to write classics!«
HEAVY (D) / Martin Römpp
»Stalingrad is definitely a contender the title ´Metal album of the year 2012'
«RCN (D) / Jochen Albrecht
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!
Following the tremendous success of ACCEPT’s comeback album, “Blood Of The Nations”, and accompanying world tour — which consisted of more than 180 shows around the globe — these German heavy metal legends have now withdrawn from the stage to start work on their next CD.
The band is currently writing material for its new LP, which will be released in the spring of 2012 and will once again be helmed by British producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY).
Commented ACCEPT guitarist Wolf Hoffman: “ACCEPT and Andy Sneap have the perfect synergy. This was very obvious with ‘Blood Of The Nations’ and we are excited to continue on that same path. Andy is not only an amazing and prolific producer but also a very good friend who has long become a member of the ACCEPT family.”
