Did some searchin' and realized there's no goddamn Accept thread...


YOU'LL GET YOUR BALLS TO THE WALL, MAN
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.


Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

These guys are awesome. Great riffs and ball breaking vocals.

Brilliant band, often overlooked. One of the founders of power metal.

I have never heard of this band.


It pains me to read things like this.

Old school death metal/black metal etc etc?

THIS is old school.

I could never get past Balls To The Wall long enough to actually take these guys seriously

This band did something other than "Balls To The Wall"?




Seriously though, good band, most people seem to only know about Balls to the Wall though.

I made almost the exact same joke a while ago in The Pit. Didn't go down well.

"Accept? Who the hell are they? Sounds like some kind of whiny emo bull****..."
#14
I can't believe they don't have a thread! One must have been deleted or something.

I haven't listened to them in years I think. I'm gonna go root out some Accept right now.

Indeed, Fast as a shark is an old favorite of mine.

Edit: Though I must say that Balls to the Wall have the weirdest album art in metal.

What is he holding?

Badass band, they were a bit on the gay side though, like Judas Priest. lol @ the Balls to the Wall album cover. That looks like something Rob Halford personally had done.
#18
I don't know whats more funny, him holding a black orange/stone/testicle or wearing leather speedos.
#20
I never wondered, until right now, who that actually was...

I thought it was kind of funny when I first saw it, though I was probably 15 at the time.

That dude's fingers are concerningly stubby...

And it looks like he has fingernails where his fingerprints should be...

I never noticed either before...

The dude's holding a metal ball, obviously?


Russian Roulette is another great album that many people overlook with awesome songs such as Aiming High

But overall Metal Heart is my favourite album, followed by Restless And Wild and then Balls To The Wall

Russian Roulette was always my favourite, actually.

The chorus of It's Hard To Find A Way always reminds me of some Alice Cooper song for some reason...

Accept were actually one of the first metal bands I listened to after the main starters (Sabbath, Metallica, Megadeth etc).

I've never heard Accept so would I be best to check out songs from these albums first?

Is it the seemingly backwards fingernails?!

Nah, I see them too. I love how half of this thread is about the cover of Balls To The Wall

It's good when album art sparks such lively debate though, eh?

You don't want something boring that people just forget.

It's nothing without Udo, man


I really like their new album. I'd rather have a fresh album with a new singer than some forced reunion with Udo where nobody gets along and a sub par album like Predator is released. Just my opinion
Anyway Wolf Hoffman is a very underrated metal guitarist imo. His riffs are terrific. My favourite album, is Metal Heart but I also think Breaker doesn't get enough credit, It's got some good songs on there as well as some crap but i still like it alot.

Why the hell is this thread so empty, where's all the accept fans? For all those who like Hoffmann's guitar tone I found this great site with some info on his gear (including an insane custom Marshall JCM 800): http://www.dinosaurrockguitar.com/new/node/475#Hoffmann

Put passive pickups on it and that guitar would be perfect.

I remember he had a passive version for the early records with 2 humbuckers. You can see it on some videos like the midnight mover clip. The tone he gets from it is incredible and i've been trying to find out what the pups were, particularly the neck pup which he uses for solos.

New album is pretty damn rockin'



Love it... Blood of the Nations is their best output since Balls to the Wall IMO (Restless and Wild still my favorite though).

Always thought they had the best metal "crunch" in the business... the intro to Turn Me On still raises the hair on the back of my neck.

In the midst of their US tour right now.
