ACCEPT - new video online! - 2010-05-11

2010-05-11 - "Teutonic Terror," the video for a track off the upcoming ACCEPT album Blood Of The Nations, will debut on MySpace on May 10th. It was shot by director/producer/editor Dave Blass. Executive Producer is Doug Jeffery (Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Rhianna) for GRID 41.
When asked how he came to be involved in making ACCEPT's "most metal video," director/producer and long-time ACCEPT fan Blass states:

"I first met [guitarist] Wolf [Hoffman] and [bassist] Peter [Baltes] back in ‘89 when they were touring with W.A.S.P. on the ‘Eat the Heat' tour. I was a DJ in Boston doing the Sunday night metal show. I reconnected with Wolf later when we used a song from his classical album for a reality series I produced. After that, we talked on-and-off over the years. He reminded me that I had called him to do some photography on ‘The Biggest Loser' when we needed some cool stylized photos of the contestants. The producers opted out of paying for a cool photographer and I ended up doing it myself. We touched base when the [band] reunion happened and talked about a video, and when it got closer, we all just decided to make it happen.

"Grid 41 is the video production company owned by Doug Jeffery who I brought in to do the project. I have worked with Doug for years and told him I needed a favor and that this would be a great project for his company as they are branching into music videos. They did the design work on the Miley Cyrus ‘Party In The USA" and Rhianna ‘Umbrella' videos to name a few. Too pretty for my taste... I needed more tanks and fire!

"Working with the band was great. Peter [Baltes] was impressed when I pulled my 1985 ACCEPT shirt out of my bag at the shoot. I couldn't tell who was more excited, the band or the crew. Even those that weren't familiar with their music got caught up in the mosh. I mean, Wolf Hoffmann and his Flying V standing on a GIANT TANK surrounded by smoke and flames doing his guitar solo... how can you not love that?! Having spent many a night in high school waiting till midnight to catch Headbangers Ball and wishing they would play ‘Balls to the Wall,' it was a very cool to be a part of the ACCEPT legacy. I think the best quote about the video comes from my production assistant Reed Blake who was awestruck after the first take with the huge flames, the crane, the smoke the drums, and the tanks. He said to me, ‘I have never seen anything this METAL.'"
