Accept, the legendary heavy metal band out of Germany, conquered the metal world back in the 80’s with thunderous classic catchy songs such as RESTLESS AND WILD, BALLS TO THE WALL, BREAKER, METAL HEART, and the list continues. The legendary five piece made a triumphant return to the limelight in 2005, crisscrossing European metal and rock festivals and received excited reception from metal fans. However, things within the band didn’t work out and the band went on hiatus. Finally Accept got back together, but without vocalist Udo Dirkschneider. The former TT Quick frontman Mark Tornillo stepped in to take over on vocals. Original members Wolf Hoffman and Peter Baltes had plenty of new strong sounding Accept material written and the new album BLOOD OF THE NATIONS was recorded during last year at the helm of Andy Sneap who had a strong input on new songs and album. The whole band was on a promotion trip and doing some shows here and there. Metal-Rules.Com got an excellent opportunity hear the new album and then hav a chat with Wolf Hoffman and the new singer Mark Tornillo.
