I don't usually write reviews, but I'll keep it short. Buy this album!!!!!. The whole album is beyond excellent. As I am typing this review, listening to Blind Rage, I have to stop occasionally, the music pulls me in, absolutely stellar. I don't know how they do it, but the last 3 albums are awesome, each it's own, a masterpiece. This album has the power of a really great album, like the kinds not usually made today. Why does it take a band like Accept, Judas Priest, Saxon, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Dream Theater, just to name a few, to make stellar albums? I have ALL of the bands listed, old and new music, my count is 1600 cd's plus, which NEVER get played on the radio stations, especially during the daytime. They do a complete dis-service to the listeners, because this is exactly the stuff they should be playing, along with their normal playlists. In short, buy without hesitation, this is how metal should be done, my vote for Album of the year! I can only hope Accept keeps making music, I will keep buying, this is superb stuff!!!

It is rare to find a band who seems to get better with age, yet here we are again with another fantastic slab of vintage heavy metal by Accept. The musicianship is undeniably top notch, with compelling, meaningful vocals / lyrics, excellent drum work and utterly fantastic guitars from start to finish. Did I mention the utterly fantastic guitar work? If you enjoyed the last two albums ("Blood of the Nations" and "Stalingrad"), "Blind Rage" easily stands alongside both of them. In fact, I'd even go so far to say that Blind Rage trumps Priest's newly released "Redeemer of Souls" (with absolutely no disrespect to Redeemer of Souls, I think it is a terrific album).

Blind Rage offers a good mix of melodic and heavy. Melodic tracks include: "Dying Breed," "Dark Side of My Heart," "Fall of the Empire," "Wanna Be Free," "From the Ashed We Rise," and "The Curse."

In the mood for something a bit more fast and furious? You've got "Stampede," "Trail of Tears," "200 Years," "Bloodbath Mastermind" and "Final Journey."

The album's promotional track "Stampede" is a solid tune, but if you found it lacking, do not worry - I thoroughly enjoy Stampede, but it's far from the best track on the album. Top tracks include: "Dying Breed," "Bloodbath Mastermind," "Final Journey," and my personal favorite on the album: "From The Ashes We Rise." (This track gets multiple repeats). "Wanna Be Free" is the closest to being a ballad, and it is arguably the darkest track on the album. Very melodic, I really enjoy this one a lot.

Personally, the weakest link in an otherwise very strong chain of tracks was "Dark Side of My Heart." It just seemed to be the one neutered track among a bunch of others with real balls.

This album continues in the excellent heavy metal path ripped by Accept since the shockingly outstanding release of "Blood of the Nations." It is just as heavy, although still a notch below the masterpiece that is "Blood of the Nations." On the other hand, it is a notch above their prior release, "Stalingrad." Bottom line, if you enjoyed "Blood of the Nations" or "Stalingrad," then you will not regret getting "Blind Rage."
The best songs for me on this album that were closest to the classic anthemic Accept songs of yore were (1) From the Ashes We Rise, (2) Fall of the Empire, and (3) Wanna be Free. These can easily stand beside the best songs from their last two albums, which were, for me, Teutonic Terror (Blood of the Nations) and Hellfire (Stalingrad).

Of these three albums, many plaudits have been made about new vocalist Mark Tornillo, whose talents I respect, but what gets overlooked is the dynamic twin guitar attack of Wolf Hoffman and Herman Frank, who add the fiery background to the music and elevate it above and beyond the ordinary to the extraordinary. (Prior to these three albums, Hoffman and Frank last played together in Accept on the classic "Balls to the Wall" album. Also critical to the success of these albums is the production of Andy Sneap, who clearly understands the dynamics of the essence of the music of Accept. (By way of background, I own every Accept studio album.)

I wasn't worried about this album at all. I knew it would be amazing, and it is. Blood of the Nations and Stalingrad were top notch; I love both albums nearly as much as the old Accept, and this one follows suit. This album is not quite as heavy as the previous two, but still heavy enough. It's got everything that makes them great: fantastically gritty vocals, heavy, melodic guitar work. My favorite songs so far are "Stampede," "Dying Breed" (this one is awesome, it cleverly pays homage to all the big metal bands, like Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Saxon, Rainbow, AC/DC, Zeppelin, Motorhead, Deep Purple, and Hendrix, among others, and their fans through the decades, incorporating band names or famous lyrics), "Dark Side of My Heart," "Fall of the Empire," "200 Years," "From the Ashes We Rise," "The Curse," and "Final Journey." There's a couple of songs I left out, but they are in no way weak or inferior. Really, it's just an absolutely great album. If you liked Blood of the Nations and Stalingrad, get this. NONE of the songs are bad. All of it is pure, hard, driving, Accept. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ALBUM.
