‘Metal Heart’ Aiming High with Accept- New Book by Martin Popoff

German heavy metal heroes Accept have been headbanging their way around the world since 1979, creating along the way three of the finest metal albums of all time in Restless and Wild, Balls to the Wall and Metal Heart, with 1981’s Breaker even serving as a cult favourite of those in the know.

Fronted by diminutive shrieker Udo Dirkschneider, the band crafted an intelligent and professional sound somewhere along the axis from AC/DC to Judas Priest, which found Accept going gold on the strength of their superlative Balls to the Wall record of 1983.

Acrimony between Udo and the guys caused the shocking ouster of their lead singer for 1989’s Eat the Heat, and a reunion in the ‘90s didn’t last, causing renewed tensions. Now back with Mark Tornillo belting it out, Accept have created a trio of rock-solid records that finds the band back in charge and cranking out anthems new and old on stages the world over.

It’s guaranteed that Popoff’s celebrated song-by-song analysis will have you scurrying back to the catalogue screaming for another love-bite, faster than a shark out of the dark and headbanging over the course of many long neon nights.
