Product Description

Although they can trace their origins back to the late 60's, these German heavy metal pioneers didnt release an album until 1979's self-titled debut. Four year later they finally found a place on the international stage and major label success with 1983's controversial Balls To The Wall, which was followed up by the more radio-friendly Metal Heart in 1985. Both are available as HNE expanded editions. Originally led by the seemingly irreplaceable Udo Dirkschneider, the singer left for a solo career as UDO following 1986's Russian Roulette. Replacing Udo with the previously unknown David Reece, lead guitarist Wolf Hoffmann, bassist Peter Baltes and drummer Stefan Kaufmann produced Eat The Heat in 1989, their first LP without Udo. Now presented with a 16 page booklet featuring an in-depth essay about the album from Classic Rock and Metal Hammers Malcolm Dome, based on new interviews with the band, this remastered CD also includes the non-album 12 single remix of Generation Clash as a bonus track.

4.0 out of 5 stars At least 8 Great, POWERFUL TRACKS -- Excellent underrated release! 13 May 2003
By Johnny Angel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In late 1988 Udo was "out" of Accept persuing a solo career with his new band U.D.O. (which was similar in style and musicianship to Accept) and "in" was American newcomer and powerful singer David Reece.

Udo definetly was an identifiable voice and a steadfast icon when you think of Accept, but Reece on this album showed a very clean, crisp, and downright powerful voice at times emulating such renowned metal screamers as Rob Halford or Manowar's Eric Adams. Different though, was that Reece had an image/style that was borderline "hair-metalish" which some people welcomed (he could have just as well fit into a Motley Crue or similar type of band at the time as singer), while more traditional Accept fans didn't like the new singers stlye, despite his more than adequate voice. More suprising than the fresh and welcome change in the vocal department was also a new rhythm guitarist Jim Stacey, who actually played nothing on this release but was the new touring rhythm guitar player. Not much is generally known about Jim or where he played before, or since, this era as he has pretty much disappeared from the scene. He, along with David Reece and Wolf Hoffmann were said to be very accommodating to the fans after shows during this era for the tours with WASP and Metal Church.

First and foremost, the scathing 1 or 2 star reviews here are simply from people who A. Probably never heard the album or any of the other songs beyond 'Generation Clash;, or B. Simply bash for the sake of 'bashing', or un-accepting (no pun intended) that there was a new singer. Anybody who states Reece 'could not sing' clearly needs to see an ENT specialist pronto.

The album overall I would say is' extremely good' and yes, some songs you will get a sense of commerical vibe with a dileberate intent by the Accept camp to try a new change and maybe compete with some of the other heavy rock/hair metal acts "happening" at the time, but you WILL know this is trademark Wolf Hoffmann and Peter Baltes behind their respective instruments. The first and second tracks are excellent (the 2nd track, Prisoner, you will sense the commerical sound, as if you could have envisioned it on the radio in 1989, but it still rocks really hard). I think the clear stand-out tracks by far are track 5 (D-Train) which is totally killer all-around, and track 10 (Hell Hammer) which showcases how truly powerful and crisp Reece was behind he microphone. Other tremendous tracks include Generation Clash, Chain Reaction, Break The Ice, and Turn the Wheel (which Udo and his band contributed 'crowd vocals' to).

* Note. Some albums have the additional tracks 'Break the Ice' and 'I Can't Believe In You'. Both are excellent tracks in themselves.

The 2-3 filler tracks are okay but nothing to get into a tizzy over, some of the other song titles have a "prince" vibe to them but they are still quality metal tracks. For the tracks Ive listed above, this album on those merits alone is worth a buy especially for many of those fans out there who might have really appreciated some of the better hair metal with much beefier songs than say what Poison or Faster Pussycat was doing during that time, but may have not been exposed to this release or that of David Reece.

Overall I would say this is a pretty darn good album. It's not as legendary as "Restless And Wild" or "Balls To The Wall", but it is better than even some of the stuff they released with UDO in the late 90s. However, this was the sole release with David Reece. The tour with WASP and Metal Church wasn't drawing too well and internal problems within the band led to Reece being dismissed at the beginning of the 90's and Accept going on a few years hiatus.

A few years later David Reece was rumored to have turned down an offer to join Judas Priest for the main reason of not wanting to go into another band as "a replacement singer" again -- traditional metal fans especially those who loved the "metal screamers" would more than likely I'd think appreciate Reece's work on this LP.

4 out of 5 for this album. Give it a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Accept carries on without Udo 26 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Despite the departure of Udo Dirkschneider and his successor, the unknown David Reece, Accept turned in a solid performance on Eat The Heat. Although this album is definitely more commercial than any of its predecessors, tracks such as "Hellhammer," "X-T-C," and "Prisoner" still have that signature Hoffmann guitarwork and Accept "bite." Yes, Accept was more than merely Udo - steadfasts Peter, Wolf, and Steffan were all present for this recording. If you call yourself an Accept fan and don't own this album yet, I suggest acquiring it while you still can. Reece's vocals are obviously different from Dirkschneider's, but while listening to it I don't confuse it with another band other than Accept. And for all you die-hard Udo fans, you can hear his vocals in the background of "Turn The Wheel Around."

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent Accept album, even without Udo. 11 Nov 2005
By Christopher Fryer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album often gets knocked by Accept fans but it is actually pretty good. David Reece has a decent rock voice and most of the songs have catchy riffs and good lead guitar from the one and only Wolf Hoffman. The album kicks off with the classic de-tuned X-T-C, which was actually covered by UDO for an Accept tribute album. The next three songs, Prisoner (good melody and verse), Love Sensation (good chorus), and Chain Reaction (cool verse w/ guitar), are all good catchy songs! After that is D-train which ain't bad but not one of my favs. The next song, Generation Clash, was chosen as the video for the album. The lyrics are a bit silly but I like the bass riff and Wolf's solo is great. Turn the Wheel is probably my least favorite song on the album. The chorus just does not do it for me. The next three songs, Mistreated (decent ballad, a bit long), Stand 4 What You R (positive message), and Hellhammer (great verse and vocals), close out the album well. Eat The Heat may have been Accept's shot at more commercial success but it is not a sellout by any means. Give it a listen, you may be surprised.

3.0 out of 5 stars ACCEPT CD 6 Dec 2009
By R. JACKSON - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
MOST OF MY HEAVY METAL FAN COUNTERPARTS ARE SURPRISED TO LEARN HOW FAR BACK ACCEPT GOES, HAVING BEEN FORMED IN 1973 BY A BARELY 5 FOOT TALL TROLL OF A MAN NAMED UDO DIRKSCHNEIDER, THE BAND WAS AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE DAWN OF THE BELOVED MUSIC THAT WAS TO BECOME KNOWN AS HEAVYMETAL THAT WAS BLOWTORCHING IT'S WAY ACROSS EUROPE AND GERMANY IN THE MID AND LATE 70'S.

THE FIRST SELF TITLED ACCEPT ALBUM WOULD BE RELEASED IN 1979 BY THESE THEN YOUNG LATE TEEN AGED CHAPS, AND TO PLAY IT BACK TODAY ON CD YOU WON'T BELIEVE THE CREATIVITY AND ROOTS OF THE LATER FORM OF THE MUSIC THAT WOULD EVENTUALLY BECOME BASTARDIZED BEYOND RECOGNITION THAT WERE LAYED ON THEIR FIRST 4 ALBUMS.

OF COURSE AS WE ALL REMEMBER AS TRUE METAL FANS TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT,1984'S "BALLS TO THE WALL" WAS THE ALBUM THAT TOOK THE BAND TO ESPECIALLY AMERICAN SUPERSTARDOME WHICH PLAYS INTO WHAT YOU WILL READ AT THE END OF THIS REVIEW. THE BAND ENJOYED MONUMENTAL SUCCESS AND UNFORTUNATELY FOR 80'S METAL FANS, YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS FOR THE NEXT ALBUM OF YOUR FAVORITE BAND, THE WORD "CROSSOVER".

AFTER THE SUCCESS OF "BALLS TO THE WALL", RECORD COMPANY PRESSURE WOULD BE APPARENT ON THE BAND'S NEXT OFFERING "METAL HEART" IN 1985,THE SAME WOULD THEN RING TRUE FOR "RUSSIAN ROULETTE" IN 1986 AS THE BAND'S FOUNDING MEMBER UDO WOULD THEN DEPART CITING A LACK OF THE BAND'S ORIGINAL ROOTS AND HEAVYNESS AS HIS REASON FOR LEAVING.

WHICH THEN BRINGS YOU TO 1989'S "EAT THE HEAT". WELL DON'T BE TOTALLY FOOLED BY THE FIRST PART OF MY REVIEW, THE BAND NOW MARCHING ON WITH AMERICAN SINGER DAVID REECE,AS IT TURNS OUT IS NOT ALL THAT BAD THOUGH NOTHING GROUNDBREAKING.UNDERSTANDING THE HISTORY OF THE BAND IS IMPORTANT BEFORE LISTENING TO "EAT THE HEAT", DO NOT EXPECT WHAT YOU GOT FROM "BALLS TO THE WALL" AND YOU'LL BE FINE, REMEMBER IT IS NOW 1989,AND THE STANDARD FORMULA FOR A SUCCESSFULL HAIR METAL BAND IS APPARENT ON THIS OFFERING AT THIS POINT IN THE MUSIC'S HISTORY.

LONG STORY SHORT DAVID REECE DOES A BANG UP JOB FOR THE MUSIC AT THIS POINT IN TIME,THE CD HAS 2 VERY HARDROCKERS, "D TRAIN" AND "HELLHAMMER" WHICH MAKE THE CD WORTH THE PRICE OF OWNING IT,"D TRAIN" IS THE HAIR ON FIRE TRACK ON THE ALBUM, OUTSIDE OF "HELLHAMMER" THE REST IS STANDARD 80'S HARD ROCK BUT HEY,IF YOU'VE BEEN SUFFERING THROUGH WHAT HAS BEEN BEING PAST AS ROCK AND ROLL OVER THE LAST 2 DECADES I RECOMMEND THIS CD FOR THAT PURPOSE ALONE.

IF YOU MISS GOOD 80'S HEAVYMETAL AND HARD ROCK PICK THIS ONE UP, GOD KNOWS IT'S BETTER THAN THE "ALTERNATIVE".
