Highlights


ACCEPT, who once had their origins in the city of Solingen, a city of sound, have been a worldwide music phenomenon for more than 40 years. They still impress with razor-sharp guitar licks and a steel-hard sound. The band created all-time metal classics like “Balls To The Wall”“Metal Heart” and many more. Countless world tours and headline slots at the biggest, cutting-edge festivals cemented the band’s reputation as one of the best, hottest, and loudest live acts ever. In addition, the band has sold millions of records, has achieved gold status in the USA, top 10 chart positions worldwide, and a number 1 album (Germany, Finland) for “Blind Rage” (2014).

Now with “Too Mean To Die” their 16th studio album is in the starting blocks - it is the fifth album that US vocalist and frontman Mark Tornillo has put his incomparable vocal stamp on. Recorded in the world music capital of Nashville (USA), ACCEPTs music was once again produced by British master producer Andy Sneap, who is responsible for the mix. Sneap, who works for Judas Priest and Megadeth among others, has also been responsible for all ACCEPT productions since 2010.

Special circumstances often lead to very special albums. This is certainly true for Too Mean To Die”, which of course alludes to the Corona period, although in a different way than one might assume.

New to the band, and thus to be heard for the first time on an ACCEPT album, is Philip Shouse (Gene Simmons Band, among others). The US guitarist fights hot duels with Hoffmann, while Uwe Lulis makes the guitar trio perfect and provides the right rhythm.

Just how varied the ACCEPT guitar trio performs on the new album is proven by one of the secret highlights: ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’ – a beguiling ballad in which Mark Tornillo is at his best. The metal world knows that Mark can scream like no other, but here it shows once again that the frontman can also sing magnificently.

A singer with whom the characteristic string virtuoso imposed another “seal of approval” right at the beginning of their 2010 collaboration with the milestone “Blood Of The Nations”, a seal of quality that is still going strong today. On Too Mean To Die” the congenial duo Hoffmann and Tornillo present the highlight of their work so far.

In addition, ACCEPT have strengthened their team even further with newcomers Martin Motnik (bass) and Philip Shouse (guitar), thus forming an unbeatable team together with “Drum God” Christopher Williams and “Rhythm Master” Uwe Lulis.

There’s no doubt that with “Too Mean To Die” Accept are once again playing at the top of the Champions League of the genre. Wolf Hoffmann & Co. present the (music) world eleven masterpieces at the beginning of 2021 - eleven songs for eternity!
