Accept's history dates back to the days when heavy metal was just in its formative stages. The band's first incarnation was put together in `68, but their first album came in `79. Over the course of their early career, they've written several influential songs and albums and helped define what heavy metal has become. Their most famous song, "Balls to the Wall", has been featured in Guitar Hero Encore: The 80s, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, 08's Oscar Award-winning movie The Wrestler and was #38 on VH1's Top 40 "Greatest Metal Songs". That album has even gone Gold in the US according to Billboard, no small feat for the genre! Now, after a decade away from the heavy metal scene, Accept have returned with a renewed strength, enthusiasm and a new album that hits you with that unmistakable, classic sound. Blood of the Nations is every bit as voluminous as the band's legendary releases with new metal anthems that carry on their legendary tradition. 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 once again put Accept ahead of the pack.
