ACCEPT have achieved what few had predicted! With ‘Blood of the Nations’, they returned to the pantheon of heavy metal after a lengthy absence with a remarkable album. ‘Blood of the Nations” was a triumphant achievement that couldn’t have been any more successful or better received by fans and media alike. “Blood of the Nations” had eclipsed all expectations, being named Album of the Year in over 50 international “Best Of” lists and charted world wide higher than any previous ACCEPT release.

We are now in February 2012. The long running rumors that ACCEPT had started work on a new record last fall turned out to be true. It has been a few weeks since ACCEPT indeed announced the completion of their new album with the title ‘Stalingrad’. And today, on Tuesday, February 28th, ACCEPT will officially unveil the first track as a teaser for their new masterpiece. At 10:00 o’clock, the title track to ‘Stalingrad’ will be available on ACCEPT’s YouTube channel in its entirety.
