German heavy metal legends ACCEPT are experiencing more success than ever, and have hit their stride creatively! In the 10th year since the band’s reunion, the quintet can look back on four top 10 albums in Germany, including an unbelievable #1 with “Blind Rage” (2014) and a brilliant #3 with their latest album “The Rise Of Chaos” (2017). Over the past few months, they have been finalizing their latest project, entitled “Symphonic Terror – Live at Wacken 2017” Released on November 23rd via Nuclear Blast, it consists of a unique, 2 hour ACCEPT show, shot on August 3rd, 2017 at the legendary W:O:A, where the band played the biggest and most extraordinary show of their career in front of 80.000 fans.
As described in our recent album review,, the show was divided into three parts: a “standard” Accept set with tracks like ‘Die By The Sword’, ‘Restless And Wild’ and ‘Pandemic’, a middle part hosted guitarist Wolf Hoffmann accompanied by a symphony orchestra, and a third set (also accompanied by the orchestra), with hits such as ‘Princess Of The Dawn’, ‘Breaker’, ‘Fast As A Shark’ and ‘Stalingrad’.
The restless and wild Sonic Perspectives collaborator Rodrigo Altaf had the chance to catch up with the longest standing member of ACCEPT, guitar player Wolf Hoffman, and they discussed the new album, plans for 2019 and much more.
