U.D.O. – Touchdown Review

“As a guy who grew up with the sounds of Accept blaring in the background, I know how important it is to keep a restless and wild metal heart and not be afraid to get one’s balls to the wall when necessary. Legendary frontman Udo¬†Dirkschneider decamped following Accept’s Predator outing, bringing an end to a cherished era in Germanic metal. The man has certainly kept himself busy since then, focusing on his U.D.O. solo project and going on to release 17 albums of Accept-adjacent metal.” Stacking the box.

Accept – Blood of Nations Review

And “THEY’RE BACK!! The teutonic terrors responsible for such classic metal albums as Breaker, Restless and Wild, Balls to the Wall have reformed to deliver one humdinger of a comeback ass whipping and one of the best metal albums of 2010 in the process. Blood of Nations is the first slab of new Accept material since 1996’s Predator and to say they are back with a vengeance is quite an understatement indeed. Yes, it’s sad but true, original and uber distinctive frontman Udo Dirkschneider is not onboard for this reunion crusade, but fear not, Accept manages quite nicely without his unique services and no one is more surprised than yours truly about that one.
