5.0 out of 5 stars Accept's Best Ever!, 20 Aug 2014
This album is some of Accept's best work to date. Blind Rage is also one of their most diverse in the same vein as Russian Roulette. There are fast songs, slow songs and everything in the middle. Mark Tornillo's voice is the best it has ever sounded in his career. As expected, Wolf Hoffmann proves once again that he is The Riffmaster offering solos that shred as well as feel. Blind Rage is a true masterpiece. Buy this album for ypurself and your friends!

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's Roll!, 11 April 2012
Stalingrad picks up where Blood of the Nations left off and shows what talent is all about. Stalingrad is Accept's best work to date. This album is definetly guitar oriented. Wolf Hoffman soars and his solos are plentiful. Mark Tornillo sounds much stronger and more confident here. There are many times that his voice sounds like Udo's back in the glory days. The songs on Stalingrad are very diverse, from classic ballads such as Shadow Soldiers to modern metal speedfreaks like Flash to Bang Time. Get this album and go see them on tour!

Listening to it for the first time as I write this Could not be much happier Accept is BACK in a big way!

Beat the Bastards is awesome. Wolf's solo's are awesome. Definetly hearing new, modern Wolf along with some classic parts of solos from 83/84. I agree Mark sounds mabye a little unsure at the beginning but by the end he is running 110%.

Teutonic Terror is still awesome. Sounds from the '90's like OO and Death Row, but refined and improved. I think Dr. Sneap had a say in this one. THANKS ANDY

The Abyss- Love the scream at the beginning. Subject matter takes me back to Meatal Heart. So does the solo. Mark shows great diversity in his vocal… Read more
