Accept Stalingrad 2012


This is yet another consecutive awesome heavy metal album coming up this week from a veteran band. To make thing sort, Accept’s newest release Stalingrad is a simply grad A heavy metal album. After gone into hiatus for most of 1990s and 2000s, in 2010 Accept did a comeback album Blood of the Nations, this album got a Metalstorm award. But for those who think they can’t be any higher, here come Stalingrad.

Hung, Drawn and Quartered is an epic opening, and then we go into marathon of metal at its best, Stalingrad, Hellfire, Flash to Bang Time all passed without problem.  Shadow Soldiers breaks in with a slow tempo anthem and its minor standard riffing make it sounds like nobody else have using this awesome riff before. Twist of Fate is the only resting point in the album. Mark Tornillo second attempt with Accept is now really accepted and begin to start their second landmark era outside Udo reigns.


Overall the sound differed little from Blood of the Nations, the improvement is mostly in song composition rather than style. It's a must have album for any heavy metal. Stalingrad set another standard for returning veteran band to show off their music to their younger generation.
