Editorial Reviews

Accept's history dates back to the days when heavy metal was just in its formative stages. Their first album came in 1979 but the fire has only burned brighter, as heard in the 2010 album, Blood of the Nations, which catapulted them back into the forefront of heavy metal. Inspired by their fans' awe-inspiring reaction to their explosive live shows as well as the grandiose success of that comeback album, the band bring us another collection of heavy metal classics. Stalingrad is every bit as voluminous as the band's legendary releases with new metal anthems that carry on their tradition of excellence. This vibrant and mesmerizing album harnesses everything that earned Accept the status of true heavy metal legends: thunderous riffs, blinding guitar leads, aggressive vocals and infectious, undiluted metal songs with a bite that are destined to keep Accept ahead of the pack. There truly is no rest for the wicked as the Teutonic terror continue their worldwide domination with a North American tour with Kreator, leaving all non-believers in their metallic dust!

This album in my opinion is just as good as "blood of the nations". These old school heavy metal legends know how its done. If you liked the previous album this is a must to your collection. Enjoy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous. Again April 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a tremendous incarnation of the band. These last 2 discs have been great. This one sort of crept up on me in that the last one was so insanely good i spun this one expecting so much, and at the end i was like, ok then. Not bad. But, upon not that many repeated listens, i cant get it out of my head, and now Im playing it pretty much constantly.

Sad to think I still have buddies who wont even give this a shot cause they are appalled at an Accept without UDO these days, but let them miss the boat if they choose. High marks from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow... April 15, 2012
By Ben
Format:MP3 Music
I really like(d) the Udo-fronted Accept and thought he could never be replaced, but I was wrong. Mark Tornillo is every bit effective as Udo and dare I say, a better overall fit. I'm a fan of TT Quick, with Metal of Honor ranking up there as one of my favorite metals albums, but Tornillo takes it to a whole other level with Accept and seems like *he's* been with them for the last 30 years. Wolf Hoffmann's playing sounds as good as ever and overall the band has sounds like a tight and cohesive unit. Andy Sneap has also done another excellent job of production making it easy to pick out every instrument but keeping everything tight and clean. Love his work.

Blood of The Nations was an awesome release, totally caught me off guard, but find I'm liking Stalingrad just a little bit more. It could be because I was expecting a let down after BOTN, a tough act to follow, but that is totally not the case. Stalingrad never lets up from start to finish and does not disappoint. Top tracks for me are Hellfire (Hoffmann really cuts loose on this track), Revolution (nice mid-paced rocker with classic Accept backing vocals), and Flash To Bang Time (which will surely have you doing a lot of banging - of your head, and may be my favorite Accept track of all time).

I'll avoid the cliched "it's the 1980's all over again" reference, in my opinion Accept has topped nearly all their prior releases with Stalingrad. It's 2012, and Accept is alive and banging. Join the Revolution!

5.0 out of 5 stars Accept - Stalingrad April 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Stalingrad is the thirteenth full-length studio album by the German Metal band Accept, and their second since reuniting and working with new frontman Mark Tornillo (of T.T. Quick fame) following up on the critically acclaimed comeback album Blood Of Nations from 2010.

The quality of the songwriting is excellent and the band make a superb job of mixing ballsy up-tempo tracks of purely driving classic Heavy Metal and longer dynamic tracks that shift tempos and explore clean and acoustic territory as well. There is enough variety so it isn't all just the same, but enough consistency that you're getting a pure and succinct experience.

Like Blood Of Nations before it, Stalingrad takes the classic Accept sound and modernizes it slightly. Don't misunderstand, it isn't overly contrived to be youthful, but it is energetic and vital with any cheesiness removed. The record touches on a few metal styles, with hints of Thrash, Speed and Power Metal all creeping in in small doses alongside the classic Teutonic Metal style off the early Accept albums.

Basically; imagine all the best elements of bands like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Megadeth, Overkill, and others condensed down into one album of tasteful guitar melodies and soaring leads, gang-backing-vocals and hard crunchy riffs. Mark's gravely low voice and occasional high notes come across as a brilliant mid-way point between Lemmy influenced singers and Halford influenced singers and suit the music remarkably well.

The production, from Andy Sneap is also utterly perfect for the album and makes the music sound both powerful and clear, with crunchy feeling on the palm muted riffs and a clean sound on the leads.

Quite simply, Stalingrad (2012) is one of the best Accept albums ever, and that's saying a lot. It is a devastating, and brutal experience which epitomizes the best that heavy metal has to offer at this time. There's not a lot of pretense here, and very few surprises, as Accept has had pretty much the same sound for nearly three decades. Forget about love ballads, this is the dark stuff that reaches out and grabs you in the gut, and shakes your foundations. If you want to hear about pain, war, death, struggle, oppression, evil, and destruction, then Accept is speaking your language, and with a maturity and conviction that is powerfully effective.

When the core of Accept, guitarists Wolf Hoffman and Herman Frank, bass player Peter Baltes, and drummer Stefan Schwarzmann, reformed with new vocalist Mark Tornillo, some may have doubted that the band could be as powerful as before, and questioned how anyone could replace the legendary Udo Dirkschneider. First on Blood of the Nations (2010), and now on Stalingrad, Accept has clearly demonstrated that the members of the band more than stand on their own merits as musicians and songwriters, and Mark Tornillo is one hell of a singer. Kind of a mix of Udo, Graham Bonnett, and Rob Halford, Tornillo's aggressive singing style meshes perfectly with the band's dark musical tone.

Led by DIrkschneider and Hoffman, Accept was one of heaviest exponents of Eurometal in the 1980's. After forming his band U.D.O., and leaving Accept, Dirkschneider has continued to produce the same kind of pile driving metal that the original Accept pioneered. Happily for fans of this crushing genre of metal, the newest version of Accept is arguably as powerful and relevant as ever.
