Accept was the German Judas Priest in the 1980s. They offered the blistering duo guitar assault of Wolf Hoffman and Hermann Frank and the high, raw vocals of Udo Dirkschneider. They released two amazing metal masterpieces before their sixth album Metal Heart (Restless and Wild and Balls to the Wall). Metal Heart came out in 1985 the year after their most famous album Balls to the Wall. To capitalize on their enhanced fame, producer Dieter Dirks (of Scorpions fame) was enlisted to give Metal Heart a more commercial sound and extra sense of melody. More change took place when Jorg Fischer replaced Frank on guitar. Accept's music began to move away from the dark intensity of their previous two records. Though the potential was there for this album to mark a giant fall from the metal mountain top, it ended up being another solid album that offers some amazing tracks.

The title track is solid and was inspired by Tschaikowski and Beethoven (so says the album cover). It sounds a little dated with the "It is 1999..." opening verse but it is one of Accept's better tracks. "Midnight Mover" moves towards the more pop metal sound. I love this track! It is catchy as heck! It is my favorite track on side one. "Up to the Limit" is solid guitar metal. It stands out to me because the guitarists moved in sequence during the verses in the live show I saw on video. It made the song, which I considered average, cooler. "Wrong is Right" flies! It is an adrenaline pumper. "Screaming for a Love Bite" is another thing all together. It has comical lyrics about a vicious hickey on the neck. It is also very pop metal but not the good kind like "Midnight Mover." It seems more of a novelty to me, so I don't take it all that seriously, though I like the guitar in it.

Accept was always in the shadow of the legendary Scorpions. This was their most solid effort. It might have not have been their heaviest, but it was their best. The band sounds great. The singing is not for people looking for Paul Rodgers or Lou Gramm. It's more like a cross between Brian Johnson and Paul Di'anno. This record sounds like "British Steel" era Priest. If you are a classic heavy metal fan(traditional, not thrash or speed), you will enjoy this album. If you do, make sure to check out all of Accept's back catalog.

Heavy metal may have reached its peak around 1985, and so did Accept. More polished than its predecesors ("Restless & Wild" and "Balls to the Wall) with more energy than the follow-up "Russian Roulette," "Metal Heart showcases everything that was right with Not-Quite-Mainstream-Because-No-Radio-Station-Would-Play-It '80s metal.
The work here presents some hich-octane burners ("Midnight Mover," "Up to the Limit," "Too High to Get It Right," and "Living for Tonight"), as well some smoldering selections ("Screaming for a Love-Bite," "Dogs on Leads"). There are also a couple of songs that move a bit beyond the ordinary fare with the title track and "Bound to Fail."
Some listeners may be turned off by the less accesible "Wrong is Right" and "Teach Us to Survive" and the adolescent nature of some of the lyrics, but if your looking for an album to propel you back to a time when music (and the fans) had more raw energy, this album is a sure bet.

This album really made a difference to ACCEPT. For the first time in their carreer they became superstars. The "Metal Heart" album shows a band that can turn to where the wind blows. And by 1985 that wind was called the commercial wind. To survive in the showbiz of heavy metal you had to go for the bigger audience and the bigger money. So they did. ACCEPT lost a lot of devoted fans, but gained even more fans. Every so called devoted fan that turned their backs on ACCEPT in 1985 did not understand the heart and soul of the band. Their mission was to make good music. With this album ACCEPT finally got into the big league. Commercial....yes...so what!! By 1985 you had to go commercial unless you wanted to play for nickels and dimes. The music is brilliant. The album "Metal Heart" is forever carved in golden letters in the Hall of fame of 80's Heavy Metal. Buy it now, and experience a band at it's peak. The tracks are awsome..every singel one of them.

By this time in the world of Accept, the power struggle reached it's initial stages. On one side you had guitarist Wolf Hoffman and Bassist Peter Baltes along with new Producer Dieter Dierks who were trying to push the band into a more commercial direction and on the other side Lead Singer Udo Dirkschneider and drummer Stefan Kauffman who wanted to keep things more aggressive and the returning Jorg Fisher who was now caught in the middle. Even with the battle lines drawn, the results were still one of the best Metal albums of the decade. Kicking off with the epic title track, "Metal Heart" charges out of the gate with doom-laden sitars and chugging guitars over a pounding drumbeat. Next up is the more commercial sounding "Midnight Mover" which I feel is an underrated classic with a big chorus before going back to the more aggressive "Up To The Limit" and "Wrong is Right" before coming into the lost gem of the record with "Screaming For a Love Bite". Terrible title I know but MAN what a riff and such a great big chorus. I remember picking this up for the first time at the old Backstreet Records in Indiana, PA around 2004 and cranking this as loud as I could. The second side is a bit weaker, but I'd hardly call it a drawback. The first side was just so good so what you have here leftover is still really good music, specifically the groove on "Too High To Get It Right". This reissue throws in some bonus live cuts as well which flow rather nicely with the rest of the record. Arguably the last "Great" Accept record until the arrival of Mark Tornillo in 2009, this is a MUST-OWN for all headbangers everywhere.
