New confirmation at Rockstadt Extreme Fest: ACCEPT

1-4th of August, Rasnov Romania

ACCEPT, established in the early 1970s, in Solingen, Germany, is one of the bands that has greatly contributed to the popularity of speed metal and thrash metal of the German music scene in the 1980s (the period in which it is believed to be the beginning of heavy metal scene in Germany).

The first materials, “Accept” (1979), “I’m a Rebel” (1980) or “Breaker” (1981), attracted the attention of the German underground movement through the interesting mix of speed and thrash metal, two styles that have consecrated them and are closely associated with them. About “Restless and Wild” (1982), the record dealing with major social themes such as politics, interpersonal relationships, or sexuality, is said to have the most pronounced features of the genre later defined as speed metal.

ACCEPT have achieved commercial success with their fifth studio album, “Balls to the Wall” (1983), with the homonym song reaching the international tops including the US and Canada.

The career of the Teutons was marked by numerous changes in band line-up and split-up, the first being in 1989, shortly after the release of new record (Eat the Heat), by 1992 and a second from 1997 to 2009 (with a brief reunion in 2005).

In spite of this tumultuous evolution, ACCEPT brought to light three albums that propelled the group to the top places of the international charts: “Blood of the Nations” (2010), “Stalingrad” (2012) and “Blind Rage” (2014) being the one who placed ACCEPT on the first place in the native country charts, Finland and top ten of many other countries, such as Czech Republic, Hungary, Sweden or Switzerland.

The Rise of Chaos (2017) followed, which has strengthened its iconic position of speed, thrash and heavy metal, and brings back to light elements dominated by complex arrangements ranging from coral passages that were suddenly interrupted by silence or complete of energetic rhythms, such as “Die By The Sword” or “No Regrets,” dominated by guitar alert solos.

Over the course of their career, ACCEPT has been on stage of some of the most popular festivals such as Woodstock (Poland), Wacken Open Air, Czech Masters Of Rock Festival or Bang Your Head Festival.
