In the history of Heavy Metal not many bands can claim to be able to celebrate their breakthrough twice. ACCEPT managed this four years ago, as, with their reunion record Blood Of The Nations; returning with a vengeance by charting all over the World and topping critics's and fan polls in the process. Built around the nucleus of band colleagues Wolf Hoffmann (guitars) and Peter Baltes (bass), with new vocalist Mark Tornillo as well as Hermann Frank (guitars) and Stefan Schwarzmann (drums), ACCEPT completed a global march of victory, peaking in a sold out tour and outstanding festival shows.
Now Blind Rage, the latest instalment in this amazing return, is ready to write history once more. The band's creative streak has delivered a thunderstorm of riffs, only one Wolf Hoffmann is able to set aflame". Another factor that has turned into an ACCEPT trademark, is the voice of singer Mark Tornillo. The New Jersey born musician has been the man behind the microphone since the ACCEPT reunion took off in 2009. Within the course of the three albums, he has grown into his role as frontman of these "teutonic terrors". Wolf Hoffmann, who likes to call himself a "naturally born perfectionist", praises his band colleague and states that "his accomplishment is outstanding".
While ACCEPT like to get newly inspired as far as the creative aspect is concerned, they put the fine tuning of Blind Rage into the most capable hands of producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH). The sound couldn't be better: Homogenous and authentic, dynamic yet versatile. And you can hear the musical wrath that gets ACCEPT going and also led to the album title. "The feeling that the world is in a constant riot was crucial. No matter, where you look, it is blind rage that let people decide to do the most absurd things."

Right off the bat, let me just say that I absolutely love this record and would highly recommend that any fan of the bands previous two records buy it without hesitation. Moreover any fan of the band or even just the genre should consider buying it. On my initial listen, it sent giddy shivers up my spine and had me thinking of phrases like “album of the year” and “career highlight” straight away, and even now when the early excitement has been tempered and attempts have been made to be rational and objective, this still feels like a very strong and important record on every single listen. It is at once both an immediate hit and a massive grower.
The style on the album is more-or-less the same style of modernized pure Heavy Metal from the last two albums; teetering smoothly on brink of early Power Metal and Hard Rock, topped off with the cherry of Mark Tornillo’s gravely Udo Dirkschneider-meets-Lemmy Kilmister (by way of Brian Johnson) vocal style. If you like pounding double-kick drums and guitar solos you want to sing along to, this is the sort of stuff for you. There are big riffs and chant-along backing vocals all over the place designed to make everything feel memorable and make you want to pump your fists in the air.Read more ›
Success continued with Stalingrad and two years on, we have Blind Rage.
Blind Rage starts with a “Stampede” (literally, that’s the first track) and never lets up. It’s as metal as anything Manowar ever released and anthemic as they come. Mark Tornillo‘s vocals remind me of a lower toned Brian Johnson and his voice rides comfortably over the chugging rhythm section.
The twin guitars are used to good effect – twiddly bits in the background of verses and screaming out solos during the bridges. Overall very well put together.
There are a few tracks that start out deceptively “light”, with clean or acoustic notes tinkling in the air. Rest assured, there’s no “Nothing Else Matters” on here. They all develop into crushing metal!
If I had to pick a stand-out track, I’d go for “Fall of the Empire” for its heaviness and slow pace. It’s just that bit different from the rest of the album. I can picture an army of metal-clad warriors marching to this one!
For a band to “make it” twice in their career is impressive, but on the strength of Blind Rage, Accept deserve the plaudits. This is an album of pure, distilled heavy metal.
Accept know exactly who they are, the music is of the highest quality, all the songs are composed so well, almost like a metal version of classical music, it's also executed with absolute precision. As a guitar fan you can't help but admire the sound and quality they produce, both Wolf and Herman the two lead guitarists are at the top of their game (by the way check out Herman Franks amazing solo albums they are fantastic as well !)
The album itself has that old school metal feel, but with a top drawer modern production, its full of strong riffs, great solos and rasping vocals, the sound can be subtle and then rip your guts out take no prisoners metal.
Every song is strong in its own way but I am going to pitch for 'Bloodbath Mastermind' for the great guitar work and 'From The Ashes We Rise' for those trademark Accept backing vocals...these are guys having fun and delivering fans what they want.
Already I'm looking forward to seeing them live later this year and would encourage everyone to do the same. Accept I salute you. Definitely buy this album, crank it up to volume 10 and enjoy !
Actually Herman frank does do one solo on the DVD....and it's good!
