Pretty good tune (minus the glitches from the upload itself). The band has been on a nice roll since Mark joined the band. Hopefully this new one is as strong as the last three albums.

Wow. Just checking in, but still definitely nothing I like about that. Who'd have thunk they could have found a vocalist as bad as that other dude? The ad when they were looking for a new singer must surely have stipulated: "Must be a terrible vocalist."

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.


Once again produced to speaker-flattening perfection by Andy Sneap, this latest batch of Teutonic anthems is easily their strongest since 2010’s Blood Of The Nations.


Opener 'Die By The Sword' (not a Slayer cover, incidentally) and the pummelling 'Hole In The Head' set the tone, with countless thrillingly brutish riffs and moments of sublime melodic showmanship from evergreen lead guitarist Wolf Hoffmann, before the title track briskly encapsulates the whole Accept experience via five minutes of timeless and towering old-school muscle.


The rest, from the wonderfully goofy 'Koolaid' to epic finale, 'Race To Extinction', are equally exhilarating and further proof, as if it were needed, that in ACCEPT hands traditional metal is alive, kicking and as exciting as ever.


Yeah, short review, let the music do the talking.


You won't get better true metal than this these days.


Highly Recommended

Agreed. :beerbang:

Blood of the Nations was in my top 5 and Blind Rage top 20 during those respective years. This is a good album, but for me it isn't quite as strong as their last couple. The songs contain some monster riffs and these guys have put out some of the best straight ahead metal over the last decade.  So, if you are a fan of the genre I recommend checking this out.
