Latest reviews

Not sure if, at this point, Accept should be called Wolf Hoffmann Group instead. Or something along these lines anyway.

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....
Review by ScreamingSteelUS ››
The Rise Of Chaos struggles at first to get off the ground. I won't hesitate to say that "The Rise Of Chaos" and "Koolaid" are the weakest singles Accept has put out in the last decade - certainly no "Teutonic Terror" or "Stampede" - and wading through those inertia dampers only to break through to an even less dynamic midsection takes the wind out of your first listen.
Review by ScreamingSteelUS ››
Now that Accept have climbed back to the top of their game and swept up the spotlight with a pair of excellent albums, their challenge lies in maintaining their grasp on success. Despite song titles like "Dying Breed," "Fall Of The Empire," and "Final Journey," Blind Rage does not spell the end to Accept's second wind; it is the next chapter.
Review by ScreamingSteelUS ››
Eat The Heat is notable (or ignominious) for two particular details: it is the first Accept album without Udo Dirkschneider in the captain's chair, and it sports one of the most horrendously uncomfortable album covers in metal history.
