This year, reformed German metal legends ACCEPT are headlining European festivals, preparing a new album as well as working on their first live DVD and CD featuring Wolf Hoffmann (guitar), Peter Baltes (bass),Mark Tornillo (vocals), Herman Frank (guitar) and Stefan Schwarzmann (drums).
The Teutonic metal band has touched the lives of so many fans and musicians alike along the way in their 30-plus-year career. Having inspired legions of fans with songs like “Fast As A Shark” and “Metal Heart”,ACCEPT helped create the speed metal genre. This time, however, it is the band that is inspired by the fans.
With the making of new music on the horizon and their busy schedule, the band is eager to share even more of themselves with their loyal following by announcing the making of the first official ACCEPT documentary. The film will feature footage from ACCEPT’s humble beginnings as a garage band in their German home town of Solingen in the late ’70s, their ’80s”Balls To The Wall” “glory days,” and all the way up their most successful reincarnation with powerhouse vocalist Mark Tornillo. This is a very proud and important moment for the German heavy metal band.
