U.D.O. – Steelfactory [Japanese Edition +1] (2018)

After honoring the classic ACCEPT songs live with his other project DIRKSCHNEIDER in the last couple of years, it’s definitely time for vocalist Udo Dirkschneider to release a new U.D.O. studio album. To be released next week, the songs on “Steelfactory” are clearly influenced by these recent shows – the simple straightness of the anthem-like songs make it a timeless...

ACCEPT – Metal Heart + Kaizoku-Ban [Cherry Red / HNE Remaster]

One of my favorite ACCEPT albums, their sixth studio effort “Metal Heart“has been reissued by Hear No Evil / Cherry Red Records, remastered by the ‘Rock Candy guy’ Andy Pearce.“Metal Heart” is Accept’s second major label release after the instant metal classic Balls To The Wall. Produced by expert Dieter Dierks (Scorpions) this record found the legendary and highly influential...

“Balls To The Wall” was the album that made ACCEPT famous all over the World, and without a doubt, it’s one of their best.

HEAR ‘n AID – Stars [Japan Only CD pressing] Out Of Print

Here’s another special request; HEAR ‘n AID “Stars”, the ’80s metal all-star benefit album. Unbelievable, but the record never was reissued / remastered nor even released on CD yet. The only existing official CD press of HEAR ‘n AID is this Japanese release from 1994, of course out of print and with used copies fetching over U$D 250 at eBay....

ACCEPT – The Rise Of Chaos (2017)

ACCEPT – The Rise Of Chaos (2017)

Continuing the post-reunion run of albums that has firmly re-established ACCEPT as modern guardians of old-school values, new album “The Rise Of Chaos” is unlikely to attract those who remain impervious to the atavistic truth of heavy metal, but Maiden and Priest aside, it’s hard to think of another band of this vintage that hit the bull’s-eye with such consistency....
