Paiste’s Artist Spotlight: ACCEPT drummer Stefan Schwarzmann

September 16th, 2010
aiste's Artist Spotlight: ACCEPT drummer Stefan Schwarzmann

Paiste's Artist Spotlight: ACCEPT drummer Stefan Schwarzmann

With their current comeback album ‘Blood of Nations’, Accept are about to top their success back in the 80’s, when Accept was the most important Heavy Rock Band coming from Germany besides the ‘Scorpions’. Long time Paiste Artist Stefan Schwarzmann (since 1988) proved once again what an outstanding Metal drummer he is, which keeps him busy now touring the States and Japan, following a very successful Summer European Tour.

Stefan already was the drummer for Bands like Running Wild, Skew Siskin and U.D.O. (and for Accept from 94-97), just to name a few. When Accept in their original line-up was disbanding in the late 80’s, Stefan joined forces with Singer Udo Dirkschneider and became a member of Udo’s Band U.D.O. for many years to come. However, Stefan’s drumming is not limited to Metal drumming. With the ‘Duo Mystica’ as well as the ensemble ‘Dirrekt’ and several other groups he discovered the diversity of rhythms from all over the world. Improvisations on all kinds of percussion instruments dominated this phase of his career.

Helloween and Krokus were the next Bands in Stefan’s impressive career until rumors about a Accept reunion proved to be true. With new singer Mark Tornillo, Accept recorded their new album with producer Andy Sneap. The excellent production and the songs speak for themselves. Great reviews all over the world and the chart entry in Germany at Nr. 4 as well as top ten chart entries in most of European countries, make this album a great success.

Stefan’s drumming can be described as powerful, hard and super precise. Check out Stefan and Accept on the current US tour.

09/23/2010 Poughkeepsie (NY), The Chance
09/24/2010 Baltimore (MD), Ram’s Head Live
09/25/2010 Sayreville (NJ), The Starland Ballroom
09/27/2010 New York City (NY), B. B. King’s
09/29/2010 Foxboro (MA), Showcase Live

ACCEPT’S WOLF HOFFMAN: “WE FEEL REAL VINDICATED”

September 8th, 2010
ACCEPT 2010

ACCEPT 2010

In a recent interview with Goldmine Magazine journalist Pat Prince, ACCEPT guitarist Wolf Hoffmann discusses the classic ACCEPT sound, working with Andy Sneap, lighting Flying Vs on fire, and the next ACCEPT album.  He also discusses bumping into former lead vocalist Udo Dirkschneider at the Masters of Rock festival recently and reminisces about a career-highlight show in 1984 at L’Amour’s in Brooklyn, New York.

Do you feel liberated a little bit with this new lineup, it being so exciting?
Hoffmann: I mean, of course. Especially after the initial criticism of a lot of people saying it could never be done. We feel real vindicated and relieved. That makes us feel good despite all the critics. I’m not making this album as a personal vendetta against anybody. We just want to make good music, you know. At the end of the day, we just wanted to go out and do our stuff because that is what we love to do.

Sneap made the record a good balance. It recaptures the old ACCEPT sound but it’s in-tune with today.
Hoffmann: Yeah, it has a modern sound, so that’s good. He made sure we had that 2010 sound, but we have all the characteristics of the past. All the good riffs and the gang vocals. He also didn’t want it to be too happy or too commercial. He kind of pushed us a little more into the dark side of things, which I think worked out really well. Overall, it was still us writing the songs. But it was a very good collaboration.

And live, you always seems to sound so perfect and crisp. Does that have to do with you guys being tech and sound geeks? Not a lot of bands are able to replicate their sound like that.
Hoffmann: Never heard that comment like that but it’s nice because that’s what we are trying to do. It’s got something to do with the way we place the guitar sounds in the mix, maybe. And we have a certain style with the riffs that we play and a certain sound that we love. And it all comes across in the end.

Read the entire interview here.

Blood Of The Nations was recorded at Backstage Studio in England with famed producer Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Exodus, Opeth, Arch Enemy) and will be released in North America on September 14th.  Exclusive pre-sale bundles can be purchased at the Nuclear Blast Web Store.

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:

September 1st, 2010

Accept - Blood Of The Nations

Accept - Blood Of The Nations

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:

ACCEPT ANNOUNCE FIRST LEG OF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

August 11th, 2010
ACCEPT 2010

ACCEPT 2010

After debuting their new line up to a sold-out audience in New York this past May and then traveling to Europe to devastate the masses with shows in 16 different countries in 80 days (including two shows opening for AC/DC), Germany’s legendary metal band ACCEPT will return to tour the U.S. for the first time in 14 years on a co-headlining tour with King’s X.  Their first show will kick-off the eleventh annual ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta.

Guitarist & songwriter Wolf Hoffman checks in about the band’s time in Germany & their upcoming North American trek:

“Believe me, this was boot camp, but we loved every minute of it!  Twelve months ago, there was nothing on the horizon that would have made us believe we would be on the stages of the world again as ACCEPT… and here we are!   [New lead vocalist] Mark Tornillo inspires us to get it all out in a way we have not been challenged before.  We can’t wait to be on stage with him!!!!   He is the new kid on the block and he is the reason we are back again.  It is such a relief, such vitamin shot!!!  And if we could, we would never stop!!!”

When asked what has surprised the band the most about their fans, Hoffman responds enthusiastically:

“NO DOUBT ABOUT IT – the biggest surprise is the way they make us feel welcomed.  Of course we hoped the fans would be happy to have us back – who would not believe that about their fans? -  but, what is happening here, EVERYWHERE we go, is a TOTAL KNOCK-OUT for us.  WE HAVE NOT SEEN FANS SO HAPPY IN A LONG, LONG TIME.”

As ACCEPT’s guitarist Wolf Hoffmann explains: “Japan was our last missing component in the international marketplace, which we have completed now with Universal! They are the perfect partners for us over there. Japan has always been a terrific market for us. We had tremendous success there in the past, so we are very happy to come back to Japan after all these years. Rock music is still a big thing in Japan and every good rock band in the world has Japan on their wish list. We can see from our website that we have a lot of fans there. We are excited and looking forward to bring them our new album and our great live shows.”
