The Teutonic Power of the Accept heavy metal music soon will arrive on Central America! The metalheads from Costa Rica will have the opportunity to see live, the band playing and unleashing the same power and fury of the gigs that they are doing all around the world since the beginning of the career. A concert in Costa Rica was just added to the STALINGRAD World Tour 2012 and the band is extremely excited to play shows for their fans in this part of the world! 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!J.N.K.Petite Fleur Winery, Napa Valley
Back in ’84, I saw ACCEPT open for KISS at the Montreal Forum and I thought it was good. In 2011, I saw the band at Club Soda in Montreal and thought they were great, but it was nothing like last night’s show (Sept 10th 2012) at Le Metropolis (in Montreal). The band was simply fantastic. One of the better shows I’ve seen this year. ‘New’ vocalist Mark Tornillo has added a spark to the band and has re-energized the old catalogue. Songs like ‘Restless And Wild’, ‘Losers And Winners’ and ‘Metal Heart’ sound fresh and powerful with Mark’s growl and how is it when speaking of guitar gods – does Wolf Hoffman get overlooked? He was blazing last night. The band also featured songs from their latest two albums (2010’s ‘Blood Of The Nations’ and 2012’s ‘Stalingrad’). ‘Teutonic Terror’ is by far their greatest song ever and to hear it live is simply killer. The band also treated fans to newer tracks ‘Hung, Drawn and Quartered’, ‘Pandemic’, ‘Bucket Full Of Hate’ and ‘Stalingrad’. It’s not often a band can change their lead singer and actually become a better band, but ACCEPT have done it and prove it without doubt at each live show. I’ll be coming back every time they’re in town. Oh, yeah – they also played their greatest hit ‘Balls To The Walls’ and yes, it had MORE BALLS with Tornillo singing! Thanks ACCEPT for another great show!
Germany’s most rejuvenated Metal act returns with a vengeance for their second album on one of the best comeback routes of all time. I’m sure anyone that even remotely associates themselves with Metal has listened to classics such as “Balls To The Wall” or “Fast As A Shark” but, let’s be serious, those tracks are from, what, 30 years ago? 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.

Accept took the stage at the Howard Theatre in Washington, DC., a venue that normally caters to R&B and Jazz artists. Well, Accept blew the roof off the place; but that’s just a normal thing at an Accept concert. Energy. Precision. Fan participation. Beyond the actual songs…they always add these extra elements when they perform live.
