When Accept released the album Blood Of The Nations in 2010, it was regarded as the comeback of the year and even won the coveted Metal Storm Award for Best Heavy Metal Album. How does a band follow that up? Apparently Accept thought that the recipe worked just fine and decided to fix just the (few) issues that were wrong with that album and release a new one in the same vein. Andy Sneap also makes a return as the producer, and the sound can be described as clear and immense, which intensifies the experience of every track.

Hm... he's powefull, but nothing can beat the real shorty mastermind Udo.

  Just finished my first listening to the full album, and amazingly, it's even better than "Blood Of The Nations"! It's like this lineup is starting to really gel, and getting even more formidable for it. It's a more dynamic album than it's predecessor, whilst still keeping all their classic heavy metal hallmarks intact. I was so impressed with it, I immediately ordered the special mail order edition of the album after I heard it!

On my second listen now... "Hung, Drawn & Quartered" is a magnificent opener! A toal neckbreaker, but also featuring some breathtaking melodies and harmonic solos by Wolf and Herman!

"Hellfire" is an absolutely killer song and no mistake! I can't believe how vital the band sound at this late stage in their career. And without their original legendary frontman no less... amazing! xD

Happy listening, hope you love it as much as I do!

I didn't think much to the title track either, though it has grown on me in time, and sounds much better within the context of the full album. I don't think it was a very good choice to release that particular song first before the album's release. I'm pretty confident though, that any doubts you have will be blown away after the first minute or so of the opening track... lol xD

I honestly dont give a fuck about their original frontman I didnt even listened to a song of those days ( I pretty sure I dont know none ).

Stalingrad it's a very good album, much better than I expected and Hellfire is just amazing ! wish I could order the special limited edition with the red t-shirt
Valentin B - 29.03.2012 at 01:57  
Rating: 9 Wow, this is absolutely glorious, I remember the feeling I had when I heard "Beat the Bastards" from Blood of the Nations the first time, and it's about the same which I feel now, that the genre of heavy metal is still alive and can still produce awesome stuff even long after it's supposed "demise". The title track is absolutely ripping in the context of this album, even though it was for me slightly disappointing when they released it. Definitely didn't expect this to be as good as it is, though I'll have to let it sink in for a bit.

All I'm sad about now is that I'll have to wait 3 months to write a review, haha.

edit: after finishing the first spin I gotta say it's definitely on par with Blood of the Nations, though not as consistent in quality, there are some slightly forgettable tracks, but I'll need to listen to this again to form an opinion. It loses some momentum in the second part (who the hell can keep writing stuff like Hung Drawn and Quartered for the duration of an entire album), but The Galley is awesome! row! row! row!

  This is class-5 metal. I cant decide if I like this or BOTN better.

What, you've never heard the Udo era stuff? I suggest you rectify that situation asap! I can see the advantage of listening to the new Accept though without the knowledge of their previous stuff, as there's no pre-concieved expectations. But I can say that as a massive Udo-era Accept fan, Mark Tornillo has worked his way into my heart, and he has done the Accept name and legacy proud. The 2 albums since their comeback have been awesome.

I have ordered the limited edition with the t-shirt, can't wait for it!


@Valentin: Yep, the feeling I got when I first heard "Hung, Drawn & Quartered" reminded me of how I felt when I first heard "Beat The Bastards" come slamming out of my speakers. And it was like that for me with title track too. It seems much stronger within the full album context.

I was thinking about doing a review for this album in 3 months time, but I think I'll leave it to you.

About forgettable tracks, I will say around 3 of the songs took about 3 plays for them to embed themselves into my psyche, but they are just growers, definitely not fillers. At least not for me. Now songs like "Shadow Soldiers" and "Twist Of Fate" which didn't impress me hugely at first, I now love! "Hung, Drawn & Quartered" is a very immediate song, but after a few plays, the whole album really comes into it's own. They definitely proved that "Blood Of The Nations" was no fluke!
Valentin B - 29.03.2012 at 13:49  
Rating: 9 Just listened to it again, and yeah, I gotta agree with AS, this is even better than Blood of the Nations. how the hell did they manage to do this I don't know, like where the hell did Wolf (I presume) come up with that verse riff in Hung, holy shit. Definitely a modern classic. screw Priest, Maiden, and everyone else, Accept are the hottest heavy metal band out there at this point. I also love how extended and good the solo's are, even in Hung the main solo lasts for over a minute and almost 2 minutes in the title track. I play guitar too and I have difficulties keeping a guitar solo interesting for more than 20 seconds, I'm confident Wolf and Hermann could solo for 15 minutes straight without sounding boring.

thanks for letting me review it btw, but now I'll have to explain how I rated Blood with 9.7 and I have to rate this one even higher which is quite difficult

just placed my order for the CD, it was 22 euros which sadly is the amount I earn in a whole day, but who the hell cares, CHAINED! TO THE GALLEYOFPAIN!

Rating: 9 After finishing my first spin, and this is amazing. Like a few people have already said, better than BotN for me, so friggin' consistant and heavy, and I have a feeling I already know what my favourite heavy metal album of the year is 'cus I honestly can't see how this can be beaten.
Angelic Storm - 29.03.2012 at 16:38  
  @Valentin: I definitely did not expect them to go and top "Blood Of The Nations". I thought to even equal it, was a tall order. But amazingly, top it is exactly what they've done! It has everything that made that album great, whilst being a more dynamic album overall. I have to agree about the solos on the album too. As a guitarist myself, I really am astounded at what Wolf and Herman have managed to conjur up this time around. The solos are highly memorable and lengthy, whilst also being explosive at times. Just awesome!

As for the review, well... it's been a while since I reviewed anything on MS, and was thinking of maybe reviewing something again. But I'm not very confident in my review writing skills, I think you'd do a better job of it. Besides, I think both of us would have very similar views on the album, so having two reviews for the same album having a similar rating might be a bit much. hehe

The 2 minute outro to "The Galley" is one of the most memorable outros to a song in my recent memory... it's a glorious ending to a majorly epic song! xD

Rating: 10 @Angelic: I think that I wont check that era too soon after listening to some songs from restless and wild and balls to the walls, dont know why, but to me now it's better

@Valentin: Dont know why you didnt like the title track, to me one of the very best the chorus is simply amazing.

Valentin B - 24.04.2012 at 00:44  
Rating: 9 I checked out some of Accept's setlists and it appears they played "Hung Drawn and Quartered" just once on their current tour, which is a shame as imo it's the best track on this album and one of Accept's top songs ever (along with Teutonic Terror and Beat the Bastards from their previous), and fuses beautifully so many aspects of old and new Accept: pompous operatic riffs like in the intro, complex layerings, anthemic stadium choruses, and of course that amazing harmonized solo, all cramped in just 4 minutes and 30 seconds of awesome.

In a time when former classic 80s bands soften up and slow down like midlife crisis has taken over them, this is a breath of fresh air and if they pull off a third album at the same quality, it's gonna be a new golden age for Accept.

musicalkaratekid - 16.08.2012 at 00:13  
Rating: 8 Yeah this is a really good album. I actually prefer it to 'Blood of the Nations', purely because the album length is more to my liking. 'Blood of the Nations' seemed to be a bit too lengthy for its own good, whereas 'Stalingrad' has room enough for those heavy riffs and great grooves. 'Hung Drawn and Quartered', the title track and 'The quick and the Dead' are just great. A couple of songs get a it boring, but apart from that 'Stalingrad' shows that German Heavy Metal can still kick a lot of arse.

Thor Meister - 07.10.2012 at 22:28  
Rating: 7 This is a really good album by Accept. I think the best tracks are "Hung, Drawn, and Quartered", "Stalingrad", "Hellfire", "Shadow Soldier". Nothing fancy, but just great riffs/grooves and a good vocal performance by Mark Tornillo. Some of the tracks create a unique atmosphere that feels like the dread and intensity of war.
nille - 03.02.2013 at 16:26  
  This album is very strong and professional album. .. . . ..

It should be said that the band ACCEPT was formed in 1979 that his work began professionally and accurately ....

ACCEPT was always the best .... At any time for decades .... Because of someone like Wolf Hoffmann above his head ....

Pay attention to melody that Wolf Hoffmann made ​​the album ... How beautiful are different and "how beautiful and beautifully made ​​...

* I have no doubt that this album in the first place
nille - 03.02.2013 at 16:40

  I'm gonna have to join the minority in the metal community and say that I don't see why Accept's reunion albums are so loved. They definitely aren't bad albums, but they don't really grab me enough for me to want to keep re-listening to them. Granted, I've not listened to any other Accept albums, so I can't say I'm the best judge on these two albums...
deadone - 17.12.2013 at 01:42  
Rating: 9 Absoultely phenomenal album and one of several albums that made 2012 a phenomenal year in metal.

Younger bands should look at what oldies like Accept are doing to keep heavy metal fresh and exciting. Oh and ballsy - even many DM bands don't sound ballsy/heavy these days.
