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.)
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.Read more ›
