Their critically acclaimed return with BLOOD OF THE NATIONS in 2010 opened the Metal Sky for the German band ACCEPT – after a 15 year hiatus – with a Bang! They stayed on the move with a second album STALINGRAD – in 2012 as always supported by a worldwide tour. 2014 they started with an impressive album release – BLIND RAGE – at the top of European charts and entries worldwide, gracing the rock magazines from around the globe from Sweden to South America, racing through Asia, Australia, Europe, North & South America – sold out shows as well as being part of the biggest International Music Festivals until December, that was BLIND RAGE Tour PART 1. April 2015 they continued with BLIND RAGE TOUR Part 2 which will end in Europe mid December.
The schedule has been pretty demanding and not everybody could stand the test of times…. poster child of fitness Wolf Hoffmann and his “ALTER EGO” Peter Baltes are pushing the envelope and have the greatest fun outdoing each other on stage – holding up the trademark of ACCEPT’s stage performance of mostly 2 hours: Fan, Power, Groove and Speed. Mark Tornillo can hold his own and is a formidable force on stage and very much loved by the fans.
Obviously, they do not slow down – the opposite. Wolf Hoffmann quote: We need to let it all come out and time is the essence. We are happiest when we are on stage and what a nerve wrecking thrill it is to write a new album and jump on stage and perform it… We are on it again ….but – we will take our time. Fans know, they can count on us – we will deliver…. but no rush. We might tape our show at the Bang Your Head Festival in Germany and release that in between.”
The band is on Tour again – FASTER…..HARDER….. LOUDER
