Accept at the Whisky: German metal band haven’t had vocalist Udo Dirkschneider in their ranks since 1996’s Predator album and the hiatus that followed – he was replaced by American Mark Tornillo for 2010’s Blood to the Nations album right up to last year’s Too Mean to Die. Fear not though – they play all the hits. Narcotic Wasteland, Attack of the Rising and Machine Worx also play.
The band signed a deal with Napalm Records in February of this year, at which point guitarist and founding member Wolf Hoffmann said, “I am really looking forward to working with a renowned, independent and strong label like Napalm Records. There are hard-working metallers at work here – that suits us. We are convinced that together we will reach the next level.”
A press release read, “ACCEPT have written many classic albums such as Restless And Wild, Balls To The Wall and Metal Heart, have played countless shows and headlined major festivals all around the globe. The band has sold millions of albums to date, entered the German and Finnish charts at #1, received gold status in the US and still impress with their trademark heavy metal sound, characterized by Wolf Hoffmann’s razor sharp riffs and their hard hitting sound. ”
Expect to hear all of those hits alongside new songs at the Whisky.
Accept at the Whisky: The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 8 at the Whisky A Go Go.
