Wolf Hoffmann has a passion. His life-long love and dedication to heavy metal music is documented in dozens of albums spanning four decades with his long time heavy metal band ACCEPT. But beyond heavy metal, Wolf has an incessant craving for the classics, yes, the ones written decades and centuries ago.
Classical music has always been an influence - albeit limited - on ACCEPT’s Teutonic approach to rock and heavy metal. However, it wasn’t until 1997 during a extended hiatus from ACCEPT, that Wolf Hoffmann finally had the chance to fully explore and fulfill this interest by recording his first astounding solo album »Classical«, a record filled with his rock guitar driven interpretations of some of classical music’s most loved compositions.
Fast-forward to 2016… Wolf Hoffmann has once again taken time out from ACCEPT to complete the long awaited follow-up to »Classical«: »Headbangers Symphony«. It’s truly a bold statement by a genuine musician who simply refused to rest on his laurels and continues to push and challenge himself.
