INTERVIEW AND LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

German metal legends Accept are no strangers in Metal-Rules.com. We’ve always been extremely supportive for the band and we’ve had numerous articles and interviews released during the past years and here’s another one for you to read. The band released their latest opus BLIND RAGE in August. The critically acclaimed album debuted at number one on the German charts, making it the band’s first number one debut in their career and it’s seen great success all around the world. Accept opened the “Blind Rage” tour in Sweden in late September. A few days later I met the band’s founding member and guitarist Wolf Hoffmann in Tornio prior their second show in Finland. It’s time to talk, again, with Wolf about current things and dig into the past a bit as well. Read on!

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

German metal band U.D.O., led by former Accept vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, have been regular visitors in Finland during the past years. The band released its 14th studio album STEELHAMMER on last May and it also introduced U.D.O.’s renewed line-up including Udo, longtime members: bassist Fitty and drummer Francisco Jovino, and new guitarist duo Kasper Heikkinen and Andrey Smirnow. It seems that U.D.O. is still enjoying such a strong success in Finland as they now played in front of a practically sold out Club Nosturi in Helsinki.

ACCEPT

INTERVIEW BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ AND ARTO LEHTINEN

Transcription by M H aka Psychophobe

LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

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.
