Accept - Symphonic Terror - Live At Wacken 2017

Some folks seem to feel an obligation to perform with an orchestra. Cozying up to a symphony is just something that bands do sometimes, like asking us if we're all having a good time tonight or talking smack about former members on social media. Maybe you hook up with an orchestra because you're bored. Maybe you've just reached that point in your career. Every once in a while, you see a band that does it because it makes sense and actually works for them. I'll admit that Accept is not the first band I'd have expected to find in that last category, but on second thought, they've always had a classical side.

It delves deeper
