We live in a time and age where the phrase “end of an era” pops up much more frequently in the various articles and the casual chats among the music fans all over the world. After all, the recent huge loss of such legendary artists as Lemmy, David Bowie, Jimmy Bain, Glenn Frey, Scott Weiland etc. filled us with grief and troubled us all in regards with the future of our beloved music. We had underlined in the past the inevitable artistic and biological end that was imminent as many stars are approaching (if not surpassed) the age of 70.

Former ACCEPT guitarist Herman Frank was recently interviewed by TNT Radio.
Asked how he looks back on his contributions to ACCEPT, Herman said: "I mean, that's the reason why I left ACCEPT, finally. I thought they mind change their mind, or, let's face it, I thought Wolf [Hoffmann, ACCEPT guitarist] would change his mind and give me a chance to show a little bit of my talent, but hey, it didn't work out, so what can you do? And then, after the last five years, I said to myself, I don't wanna stay the rest of my life on the right, standing in the dark on stage and covering somebody's guitar. It's easy like that. Sorry, that's the truth. I really wanted to do my own thing. I was doing so many albums and composed so many songs, and I missed this. I didn't wanna be just equipment. I mean, I was getting tired. This was a one-day street for me. Ιn the end, it was still the Wolf Hoffmann project like the years before."

Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann of German/American metallers ACCEPT spoke to Metal Wani's Laura Vezer about the band's upcoming follow-up to 2014's "Blind Rage" album, which will be released next year via Nuclear Blast. Regarding the new disc's musical direction, Wolf said: "I can tell you it won't be dramatically different. My feeling is, and I'm way too close to it and it's not even half finished, so I don't really know which turn it's gonna take, but it feels pretty heavy in places — actually, maybe a little heavier than 'Blind Rage'. But it's all relative. It feels that way to me. I'm not making any sort of meaningful predictions here; it's just a gut feeling at this point. But it won't be dramatically different, 'cause we're really trying to sound like we've always sounded, only as good as ever, better than ever — better, stronger songs, but not any different directions per se."

Accept is ready to bring once again its Teutonic terror to Athens with yet another show that would be permanently engraved in everybody’s memory. A few hours before that, Wolf Hoffmann & Peter Baltes were kind enough to sit down with us for a wonderful interview. We paid them back with an equally wonderful view on the roof garden of Novotel Athenes where they were staying and…lots of sunshine!
Special thanks to Wolf and Peter for enduring the Greek sun on a hot afternoon, Gaby Hoffmann for setting up the interview, Georg Michael (sorry for waking you up, man!), Eleni Xiarchogiannopoulou and Novotel Athenes for putting up with a true heavy metal situation on a very busy day! \m/

Check out the entire interview here:

The hottest band in the world nowadays, from the younger generation of course, is none other than Sabaton. The Swedish outfit has managed to create a buzz and gather under its wings a huge fan base all around the world. Even the mighty Accept has decided that it would be a good business move to be the special guest on the current European tour of Sabaton. I guess that says it all, right? So, let’s see how the show was on that rainy night in Athens…
