ACCEPT’s new record is entitled “The Rise Of Chaos” and will be unleashed on August 4th, 2017. The 4th studio release through Nuclear Blast will continue the tradition of its three predecessors – “Blood Of The Nations”, “Stalingrad”, and “Blind Rage” – with grandeur and precision.
And if this wasn’t enough, we will celebrate the album’s live premiere exclusively on August 3rd, on the day before its release, as a part of a special show at Wacken Open Air, Germany.
The set will consist of three parts:
Part 1 – Will bring fans a classic set, packed with new and old hits.
Part 2 – Will present another premiere: Wolf Hoffmann will be playing tracks from his solo album »Headbangers Symphony«, released in 2016, with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra for the very first time. On this record, Wolf has covered famous opuses by composers such as Beethoven, Vivaldi, and Mozart, in a metal guise. And in;
Part 3– All elements can be seen and heard together: This will make the holy Wacken ground shake by sharing the stage with the orchestra, supported by a complex multimedia show.
This unique concert experience will take place on this year’s “Night To Remember” which makes it even more special. The “Night To Remember” is a celebrated, long-lasting Wacken tradition; for one night of the festival a selection of established bands will do something unique and special with their performance.

The last show in South America, in Santiago de Chile can be called the GRAND FINISH of a fantastic tour with shows in Argentina & Brazil. After a highly praised performance at the MONSTERS OF ROCK in 2015 ACCEPT came back with a fire in their belly… and a full 2 hour show.
Wolf: THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the packed houses where we marveled in joy: YOU OUT SANG US – even after we had left the stage already… you did not want to stop… neither did we!
We will come back and promise you a new album and a very DIFFERENT SHOW – something we have not done before! We feel empowered by our fans around the world – and will go back to write songs with great inspiration in our hearts! Stay tuned… the ACCEPT story goes on!
The show reviews are stunning and it is obvious, ACCEPT did it again! In Santiago spring floods nearly jeopardized the event – but, fans came running and ACCEPT delivered.
Powermetal and others gave them a raving feet back – translated like this: Fearing the Theater would collapse, all jumping to the rhythm of the subject may define itself in this new stage – Accept a band – simply… devastating. Teutonic Terror is pretty much one of the best modern classic songs , a true axing of German terror.
We left the theater with the feeling of having experienced something unique with emotions that feed the soul after a precise and demolishing show in sound, bright in the staging, rewarding in delivering live the best of a bygone era, but in the present, going further than ever as ACCEPT are Masters, Lords and Masters of Heavy Metal – just perfect.
Full Metal Mountain is a great idea! Imagine that you are skiing down the alps, you stop at a bierstube for a beer and there is a band there playing metal……
And at night you are among other metalheads in the main tent drinking beer and listening to your favorite bands. The atmosphere in Tropolach is just electric and everybody I spoke to said it had been an unforgettable week.
I spend two days there and the highlight was of course the ACCEPT concert Saturday night which also was the last show of the festival.
ACCEPT came on stage about 22.30 with the pounding “Stampede” and from there and on the audience was with them. From the new classic Stalingrad through some old classics like London Leatherboys and Restless & Wild they were impressive as always giving 110%. The cool thing about this show is that they played more “new” songs than old and that says a lot about the quality of the new songs for a band with that many classics from the eighties. The show had not a boring moment just a lot of highlights like Peter and Wolf’s “battle” and the solo on Fast As A Shark where Wolf and Uwe are brilliant. And Mark’s voice really fit the songs perfect.
After a short break Christopher fires up the audience to a last effort and when the encores comes with Metal Heart and Balls to The Wall the night is complete.
They thank the crowd as Bound To Fail fades out after a perfect end to a great week in the Austrian mountains.
