ACCEPT Guitarist Interviewed On 'Focus On Metal' Podcast

Episode 7 of the Focus On Metal weekly podcast features a brand new interview with guitarist Wolf Hoffmann of reformed heavy metal legends ACCEPT. Wolf talks about the band's reunion, growing up in Solingen, Germany and the impact that had on the ACCEPT sound; and his love of photography. You can now listen to the podcast using the audio player below. (Note: The Hoffmann interview begins around the five-minute mark.)

Metal Fanzine's Ken Kitt has uploaded multi-camera video footage (see below) of ACCEPT performing the song "Balls To The Wall" on October 8, 2010 at the Agora in Cleveland, Ohio. The show, which also included performances by KING'S X and Cleveland's own SHOK PARIS, was professionally filmed and recorded for possible future release.

"Blood Of The Nations", the new album from ACCEPT, sold around 2,900 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 187 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Released in North America on September 14 via Nuclear Blast Records, "Blood Of The Nations" was recorded at Backstage Studio in Derbyshire, England with acclaimed British producer and SABBAT guitarist Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY, MASTERPLAN). The CD marks the recording debut of the band's latest addition, vocalist Mark Tornillo (ex-TT QUICK).

After debuting their new lineup to a sold-out audience in New York this past May and then traveling to Europe to devastate the masses with shows in 16 different countries in 80 days (including two shows opening for AC/DC), ACCEPT has returned to tour the U.S. for the first time in 14 years on a co-headlining tour with KING'S X. ACCEPT's first show kicked off the eleventh annual ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta.

ACCEPT 2010 is:

Wolf Hoffmann: Guitar
Peter Baltes: Bass
Herman Frank: Guitar
Mark Tornillo: Vocals
Stefan Schwarzmann: Drums

The October 19 concert by ACCEPT at the Key Club in West Hollywood, California was streamed live around the world via Stickam.com.
