The song “Teutonic Terror” from reformed German heavy metal legends ACCEPT was honored with the “Metal Anthem” award at the Metal Hammer Award Show last night (Friday, September 9) at Kesselhaus in Berlin, Germany. The band’s bassist, Peter Baltes, said, “We are very honored and grateful. Thanks to all you guys for voting and supporting us. What a way to end the tour.”
ACCEPT‘s July 15 performance at this year’s edition of the Bang Your Head!!! festival in Balingen, Germany filmed for a future DVD release. The concert marked the band’s return to a five-piece format after the group spent a couple of months touring as a quartet due to the fact that guitarist Herman Frank suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung in a stage fall on May 6 in San Antonio.
ACCEPT‘s latest album, “Blood Of The Nations”, was released in North America on September 14, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records. Recorded at Backstage Studio in Derbyshire, England with acclaimed British producer and SABBAT guitarist Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY, MASTERPLAN), the CD marked the debut of the band’s latest addition, vocalist Mark Tornillo (ex-TT QUICK).
ACCEPT 2011 is:
