Being an Accept fan from the early 80's I have always thought that Wolf Hoffmann is one of the most underrated guitarists in the past 20 years. If you like Accept then you will hear this awesome guitarist in a whole new light...if you don't know Accept then you will be introduced to a really awe inspiring guitarist.
Wolf's guitar mastery really shines on this CD. There is so much to listen to that you need to just listen to it over and over again to get the most out of it. There are so many multiple guitar styles and tones in each of the tracks that it always keeps you wanting more but it never gets cluttered. This is a well produced and engineered CD that obviously has a lot of hard work behind it.
This CD is one that needs to be in every collection!

I think Wolf says it all in the liner notes with something like: this is how he thought the Masters would play if they had a Marshall Stack and a Whammy Bar. How a metal axeman out of Accept can be so delicate is beyond me, but the delicacy loses none of the Accept power, even some of the old Accept boys are listed as back up muso's. As a metalhead of old, I never thought I'd listen to the Classics let alone appreciate them, but hearing them from this point of view, metalised maybe, I have discovered a whole new musical appreciation. Introducing metal friends of mine and others who are classical freaks to this album gets the same response ... how brilliant is this, how unbelieveable is Hoffman's guitar work? This brings together 2 worlds that never looked like getting it on - Classical Metal or a Metal Classic(?) you decide - you won't be disappointed!

German guitarrist Wolf Hoffmann was always the real talent behind German heavy rock group Accept, a band that, in its zenith, was one of the most recognizable metal acts in Europe, and was on the verge of making the United States. The band was, of course, always hold down due to having Udo Dirkschneider in their ranks, a singer with a "voice" that, no matter how original and aggressive, was totally ugly and distorted. Accept was gone due to a lot of fighting between its members, some of them wanting to go for a commercial approach to succeed in America, others voting for sticking with their aggresive formula.
Even in Accept, Wolf displayed clearly his classical skills, with beautiful solos, even when they were fast.
Now, he at last seems to unleash a solo career, and, wisely enough, he has chosen to play covers from classical masters (this album has only one original song from Wolf), to "feel the terrain". Master producer Michael Wagener did a splendid job, and the album sounds amazing.
Go on, Wolf, you deserve it

Anyone like me who like classical and also metal will love this cd. Every song is good. His interpretations do not destroy the original music, so you can tell definately what song you are hearing. The guitar work is fantastic, this guy has real talent squitring out his ears.

This is an incredible meld of classical and metal music. I doubt that anyone else could do this as well as Wolf Hoffmann, who has nourished his love of classical music throughout his career as guitarist for the metal band Accept.
If you love classical music, treat yourself to a wrenching, gripping new take on it. If you love metal music, treat yourself to the classics in a way you've never heard before; a way that will win you over to classical music at last.
I give copies of this CD as presents to people I love a lot.

I bought this CD two years ago and it cost me almost $30. I thought that price for a CD was high back then, and I can not believe it's selling for almost $100 now. That seems a bit high, but I will tell you that the classical spin with the electric guitar sounds awesome. If anyone gets a chance to pick this CD up they should do it. I just wish I could find it on vinyl.
