Accept – The Rise of Chaos (2017)


Delivering the most intense Heavy Metal release of 2017, today we have Germany’s Accept and their latest full-length release “The Rise of Chaos”. Having resuscitated back in 2009, Wolf and Mark Tornillo have led this band to release some of their strongest album in the last decade. Featuring over 45 minutes of music distributed in ten tracks, the band cranks out some of the most anthemic songs of the year, so be prepared to be blown away.

Opening with the relentless “Die By the Sword”, we get signature Accept guitar leads and vocal arrangements that will make you want to drop everything that you are doing and start headbanging from start to end. Other epic songs like “Hole in the Head” and “The Rise of Chaos” showcase the band’s knack for crafting soaring vocal melodies and superbly catchy chorus sections. Wolf’s guitars are on point as always, and deliver some killer leads as showcased on “Koolaid”.

As the album continues to steamroll its way through your speakers, memorable tracks like “Analog Man” and the intoxicating “What’s Done is Done” will surely make you hit the replay button more than a few times. New additions to the band, guitarist Uwe Lulis (ex-Grave Digger and ex-Rebellion) and drummer Christopher Williams, have perfectly jelled with the band and deliver some seriously ass-kicking performances, keeping the Accept intensity untouched.

With a very intense and dynamic approach to songwriting, the band delivers tracks that go from very hyper, like “Carry the Weight”, to more grandiose like the closer “Race to Extinction”. Closing on a very high note, we are yet again reminded that Accept is back and it is stronger than ever. Since their return they have been unleashing epic album after epic album and this is no exception. If you are a true Heavy Metal fan, you need to have this in your collection… period.
