Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the veteran German metal band, their first studio album in over a decade and the first to feature Mark Tornillo on vocals. Blood Of The Nations was recorded over the winter of 2010 at Backstage studio in Derbyshire, England with celebrated British producer, Sabbat guitarist and long-time Accept fan Andy Sneap. A vibrant and mesmerizing album, Blood Of The Nations harnesses everything that earned Accept the status of a true Heavy Metal legend thunderous riffs, blinding guitar leads with intricate melodies, aggressive vocals and infectious, undiluted Metal songs with a bite that are destined to once again put Accept where they belong - the oligarchy of the Heavy Metal world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back with a vengeance! September 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Several months ago I read that Accept had finished their new opus and it has been worth the wait. This is the best album they have put out since the mid 1980s! The new singer, Mark Tornillo, fits in very well. For those of you who don't know about Mark, he used to be in the 1980s metal band T.T. Quick (check out Front Burner and Hell To Pay for some classic metal!). On songs like The Abyss he even "croons" in the middle and then ends it with a scream that sounds like vintage Jon Oliva of Savatage. Mark's lyrics are more aggressive and darker than I expected but I suppose that's just a reflection of the times we are living in with war, terrorism, rampant greed, etc. As for the rest of the band, the classic metal riffs and wailing solos are back in full force. It's hard for me to pick favorites at this point in time because the album is quite solid with plenty of midtempo Accept crushers and a few fast ones. The production is loud, clear and crisp, although I might have put Mark's vocals a bit louder on some of the songs. I'm not going to knock Udo because he is a metal legend, but I did not like the direction the band took in the 1990s trying to sound like something they were not. This album is a return to form for Accept. I only have a couple of minor complaints with the new album. First, guitarist Herman Frank only has one songwriting credit. Wolf and Peter are master metal blacksmiths when it comes to forging killer riffs but Herman is a metal legend in his own right. The man has appeared on classic albums by Sinner (Touch of Sin!), Victory, Moon 'Doc, and Hazzard. I hope they do another album together where Herman finally has more input (he came in after Restless and Balls were basically finished). Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Heavy Metal That Has Been Sorely Missed September 14, 2010
By wizey
Format:Audio CD
German heavy metal legends Accept have dedicated their new album Blood Of The Nations to members of all the armed forces who fight to protect our freedoms, but that picture on the cover could well be blood from the ears of those of us who have listened to it! Accept are back, and man are they back in a big way, delivering a full on sonic assault the likes of which heavy metal has not witnessed for many, many years, and which the genre has sorely missed. This is surely their best album at least since Russian Roulette in 1986, and possibly the best album of their career thus far.

Blood Of The Nations really is a blast from start to finish with well thought out musical arrangements and Wolf's solos are particularly impressive over Herman's power riffing (I love the guitar tone of these guys!), plus Schwarzmann gives us a smashing exhibition of drumming. Then there's buzz saw like lead vocals, gang vocals, heavy but clear bass and it's all mixed to perfection by Andy Sneap. Highlights for me include:
Track 2 Teutonic Terror - Classic retro metal yet sounding fresh at the same time, some classic metal lyrical phrases and ultra cool bass work in the intro (terrific film clip too!)
Track 3 The Abyss - heavy riffs, some real high pitched screaming and a great contrasting melodic refrain that works perfectly with the lyrical theme.
Track 5 Shades Of Death - Power riffing to make Metallica fans cream their pants (note: Metallica credit Accept as a major influence on them).
Track 7 Time Machine - Classic Accept base line with the perfect blend of beat, power & melody. Would be a shame to get this album without this bonus track, it's a killer.

5.0 out of 5 stars How did this happen? November 5, 2010
By teahead
Format:Audio CD
In today's world it is extremely difficult to come across a decent classic heavy metal album, let alone a good one. I remember drooling over Ronnie James Dio's Heaven and Hell album "The Devil You Know" in 2009 because it was the best classic metal album I have heard in a decade at that point, and such a diamond in the rough. After that, I didn't expect to run into anything of similar quality for a long time, but...

Wow. Accept's "Blood of the Nations" will probably go down as one of the biggest "What the hell is that?" albums, because it hits you right in the face with amazing heavy metal music from track one to the last track, without letting go for a second. A classic band coming back these days with this kind of incredible material is truly a jewel that many of us will treasure for a very long time.

The melodies, the amazing guitar work (both heavy riffs and insane solos), the aggressive vocals, the clean drumming, no distortion in the production...the talent here is so thick, you can cut it with a knife. I never expected to hear anything of this high quality from any classic band, but boy, was I wrong! This record is addictive and will have you coming back to it again and again. I honestly can't spot any weak points on it and have been listening to it since getting it almost nonstop.

I HIGHLY recommend this album to anyone who enjoys such artists as Dio, Iron Maiden, Hammerfall, Firewind, Primal Fear, Black Sabbath, and other similar great bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Metal Masters Have Returned September 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album is some of their best work ever. Ranks right up there with the classics Balls to the Wall, Restless and Wild, Breaker and Metal Heart! This is one of the best metal albums to be released in the last decade. Mark Tornillo has a somewhat similar style to Udo's voice, but a much greater range. The production and energy of this album is top notch. Buy this today.

Gbye Udo. Accept still sounds just like I remember them sounding back in the day. Perhaps better. Killer guitar riffs and tone with (Gasp) a singer that sounds better than udo.
