Back with an even more devastating album in 2012, ACCEPT’s Stalingrad will be unleashed on April 6th in Europe and April 10th in North America.
The follow-up album to the runaway success of 2010’s Blood Of The Nations, the eleven tracks produced by Andy Sneap that constitute Stalingrad are filled to capacity with everything that made ACCEPT famous: exceptional songwriting, soaring guitar solos, a propelling dual-guitar attack, a no-holds-barred rhythm section and chanted background vocals. Practically every track is destined to become a live anthem!
States guitarist Wolf Hoffman: “We put ourselves under enormous pressure to bring out a new album right after our 180-show tour marathon, which took us two times around the globe. But we are very proud about what we delivered with Stalingrad and we hope our fans will like it as well.”
The track listing for Stalingrad is:
01 – Hung, Drawn And Quartered
02 – Stalingrad
03 – Hellfire

06 – Revolution
