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. In their home country Germany, ACCEPT charted at an incredible #4 in the Media Control Charts, making this highest position in the band’s career to date.
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. Besides the “red ACCEPT-line”, as the band likes to call it, the only goal was to “remain interesting”. 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”.
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.”
The cover done by Daniel Goldsworthy (HELL) will hit you right in the eye. Grimly snorting, the proverbial beast, we all have inside of us, unstoppably stomps through the hellfire this world is becoming.
