Blood Of The Nations, the comeback album by Germany’s legendary metal band ACCEPT, just entered the German album charts at #4!  This marks the highest German chart entry ever in the band’s career and beats the #5 position of 1986’s Russian Roulette.

ACCEPT guitarist Wolf Hoffmann shares his thoughts on the news:

“This really swept us off our feet!  Of course, you dream about being on top of the charts, but this was pretty much out of the question.  We tested new waters with our new singer Mark [Tornillo, ex-TT Quick] and emerged as winners!  But even more than that, this is the reward for our unique collaboration with our label Nuclear Blast, Brainstorm Music Marketing, and all the others who gave their everything for ACCEPT.  But most of all, we want to thank our fans without whom we would be nothing!  THANK YOU!”

ACCEPT will be co-headlining their upcoming tour with King’s X, kicking-off with an appearance at the eleventh annual ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta, Georgia.  Confirmed tour dates are:
