There is simply no stopping ACCEPT. The latest album “Stalingrad” by these German rock legends has this week’s highest chart debut at #6 in the German Media Control Charts. This is ACCEPT’s second Top 10 debut over the last two years and reinforces their status as a true Big Time Player in the international Hard Rock and Heavy Metal scene. Additional chart placements around Europe impress as well. In Switzerland, the album debuted at #17 and in Austria at #32. ACCEPT, who are currently on the road in Europe, have once again engulfed the music world like a typhoon.
Grandiose, enormous riffs, magnificent Cossack choruses, classically inspired solos, haunting refrains and the typical, raucous vocals – these are all legendary traits of ACCEPT and brought repeatedly to extreme front and center on “Stalingrad“. All the vehemence and passion has empathetically been captured one more time by none other than in-demand producer Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Masterplan, Exodus, Arch Enemy, Hell, Nevermore). With both eyes closed, one can instantaneously and indisputably smell the formidable mix of leather, sweat and euphoria! This is what classic heavy metal tastes like in 2012!
Here are the specific chart debuts of ACCEPT’s new album “Stalingrad”:
Germany: # 6
Switzerland: # 17
Austria: # 32
France: #50, this improved on Blood of the Nations by 25 Spots!
Czech Republic: #25, bettered BOTN by 9 spots!!
