Few German artists truly deserve the habitually tossed about label of “legend”, but one band is indeed nothing but legendary in the truest sense of the word: Germany’s supreme heavy metal veterans ACCEPT. “Restless And Live” is a complete and satisfying platform for ACCEPT to show off their top shape. Their many years in the music business have only hardened ACCEPT’s resolve to keep innovating, and no one can accuse the quintet of just playing to nostalgia with some old man mentality. Instead, they have headlong returned to the forefront of the German Heavy Metal scene. “Restless And Live” comes with my fully convinced “buy now” recommendation as it simply belongs to any and every serious heavy metal collection.
In the January 2017 issue of Guitar Player Magazine, Michael Molenda interviews Wolf Hoffmann. This Metal Special feature article explores the 8 year journey Wolf took that produced Headbangers Symphony (Nuclear Blast) and get the details on the gear and equipment used to create this epic album as well as the process he uses to craft his solos.
“I’m a strong believer in that it’s not only what you play, but how you play it.” – Wolf Hoffmann
