— Headliner

— Teutonic metallers ACCEPT could already claim big worldwide success with »Blood Of The

Na2ons« and »Stalingrad«, but with »Blind Rage«, they reached the pinnacle of their career

in the form of the pole posi=on, a #1 album. Besides #1 in Germany, ACCEPT also hit #1 in

Finland as well as several top 10 posi=ons; Czech Republic, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland,

the UK and last but not least the US. AMer releasing a string of metal classics in the 80s such

as »Breaker« (1981), »Balls To The Wall« (1983) and »Metal Heart« (1985), which made

them iconic, the band with Wolf Hoffmann and Peter Baltes s=ll haven't peaked, especially if

you glance across their touring schedule; ACCEPT have headlined Woodstock Fes2val

Poland, Wacken Open Air, Czech Masters Of Rock Fes2val and Bang Your Head!!! Fes2val,

Germany — amongst countless other performances over the last few years. Their Bang Your

Head!!! performance was also filmed and released in the form of a live DVD/Blu-ray+2CD

package =tled »Restless And Live« (2017), reminiscent of their classic »Restless And

Wild« (1982). With this DVD in the fans' hands, ACCEPT could cement their previous success

from »Blind Rage« by hi_ng #1 in the Swedish and German DVD charts amongst others.

But that's enough nostalgia — back to the present, back to 2017! AMer the aforemen=oned

DVD's unleashing and an almost 3-month European tour, ACCEPT speed around the corner

with their new album »The Rise Of Chaos« which will cement their status as genre leaders

once again. Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann comments on the album =tle, "»The Rise Of Chaos« is

something I have been thinking about oAen. It describes a condiFon which is slowly spreading

around the world. With the stage setup on our latest European tour, we wanted to portray

rather dystopian and destroyed scenery. If you now take a look at our new cover, it's the same

imagery. This Fme however you can also spot the invisible destrucFon that we feel more and

more in these Fmes, as well as the visible destrucFon."

ACCEPT con=nue along the path they started with their three previous records, which is why

the band has recorded their 4th studio album since 2010 once again with Andy Sneap. The

excep=onally detailed artwork was created by Gyula Havancsák. «Previously our cover

artworks had been really simple and focussed on one message. But this Fme, we wanted to

make it more interesFng by using an atmospheric picture where you can find a lot of hidden

details, but also with a clear and thoughSul statement present,» adds Wolf.

The band delivers more than just a musical statement with »The Rise Of Chaos«, in this case

it's a clear announcement (!) — with the straight forward opening track 'Die By The Sword':

Galloping drums, lightning guitars and ACCEPT's trademark choir instantly silence any doubt

as to whether they're s=ll the top dog when it comes to top-notch Teutonic metal. Second

track 'Hole In The Head' leaves no =me to breathe, before the =tle track kick-starts and tries

to pummel its way through the listener's ear canal. This song may evoke a sense of familiarity

within listeners, because it was previously released with an impressive music video. AMer

consuming the upcoming 'Koolaid' shake, 'No Regrets' keeps heads banging with its speedy

guitar solos, which concludes the 1st half of the record. 'Analog Man' rings in the 2nd part,

telling the story of the world increasing digi=sa=on: Its haun=ng (pre) chorus should

undoubtedly confirm its place in forthcoming ACCEPT set lists. Track number 8, 'Worlds

Colliding', marks the album's most thoughnul song, swiMly followed by the fastest banger of

»The Rise Of Chaos«, 'Carry The Weight'. AMer 45 minutes, the closer, 'Race To Ex2nc2on',

lets the record fade out fi_ngly.

The songs from »The Rise Of Chaos« will be performed for the very first =me at Wacken

Open Air 2017's »Night To Remember«. Besides new ACCEPT tracks, Wolf Hoffmann will

also bring his latest solo album =tled »Headbangers Symphony« (2016), which showcases

famous pieces by classical composers such as Beethoven, Vivaldi and Mozart (specially

arranged for the metal world) on the stage for the first =me ever; he will be supported by the

Czech Na2onal Symphony Orchestra. The last and concluding third part of this once in a

life=me evening will be fulfilled with a classic ACCEPT set alongside the orchestra.

Wolf Hoffmann states, «It's always impressive to see how bands take this evening seriously

and how much love the arFsts and the organising team put into their work to get a varied

result. It's a great tradiFon which underlines and documents the top-notch level of the

internaFonal rock community like nothing else. We also want to present something that

ACCEPT has never done before, we hope we can give something really special to the fans.»

«ACCEPT have been and are sFll a very important part of Germany's heavy metal scene. We're

really looking forward to having them with us once more. With this epic concept, the

Thursday evening will be one to remember for sure,» closes Thomas Jensen, organiser of

Wacken Open Air.
