ACCEPT was one of the founding fathers of the German speed and power metal movement back in the early 1980’s, yet when they disbanded in 1997, everyone thought the band was dead, never to rise again. In 2005 we saw the reunion of ACCEPT for some European festival shows with original frontman Udo Dirkschneider, but it was very brief as Udo and the rest of the band decided not to put out new material together. Thankfully for the fans, ACCEPT came back stronger than ever under new frontman, Mark Tonillo, former T.T. QUICK vocalist. 14 years after the bands last original album, ACCEPT released Blood Of The Nations. Here starts the rebirth of one of the strongest metal bands around, and two albums later brings us to their latest release, Blind Rage.

Blind Rage keeps the ferocity going that ACCEPT is known for with their relentless driving rhythm and pounding beats. Opening up is the fast paced “Stampede” with its classic metal sound and soaring solos from Wolf and Herman that gets the adrenaline running, head bangin’ and the ears ready for more. “Dying Breed” is an anthem for the founding fathers of metal including the likes of JUDAS PRIEST, BLACK SABBATH, LED ZEPPELIN, AC/DC, DEEP PURPLE and others about how an era and style of metal that started a movement long ago is dying out with only a handful of bands still around spreading the word of classic metal today. “Trail Of Tears” comes on strong with lyrics about the oppression and forced relocation of the Cherokees and other tribes from the southeastern U.S. to territory west of the Mississippi river during the 1800’s. “The Curse” is the slowest song on Blind Rage and takes on a very classic ACCEPT power ballad sound with a solid guitar foundation that leads in a strong, powerful solo and finish. Closing out the album is the fast paced “Final Journey”. Its fast galloping rhythm leading into a ripping solo is just what the auditory senses needed to end this latest contribution from such an amazing band.

This is a very solid third release from the fathers of speed/power metal after their resurrection. If there were any complaints about this album, it would be that the backing vocals seem too much at times on a few of the songs, but that would be nitpicking. It would also be great if they would put out something in the vein of “Fast As A Shark” with its speed and ferocity, or even a remake of the classic song would be cool too.

ACCEPT is currently touring in Europe, Japan and Australia through November, but look for them on tour in the U.S soon.
