ACCEPT Guitarist Interviewed On Greece's 'Metalzone' (Audio)

Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann of reformed heavy metal legends ACCEPT was interviewed on the September 3, 2010 edition of the "Metalzone" radio show with Kostas Purevil Kyriakakis and Helena Mihailidou. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

"Blood Of The Nations", the new album from ACCEPT, entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 4. This marks the highest German chart entry ever in the band's career and beats the No. 5 position of 1986's "Russian Roulette".

Commented Hoffmann: "This really swept us off our feet! Of course, you dream about being on top of the charts, but this was pretty much out of the question. We tested new waters with our new singer Mark [Tornillo, ex-TT QUICK] and emerged as winners! But even more than that, this is the reward for our unique collaboration with our label Nuclear Blast, Brainstorm Music Marketing, and all the others who gave their everything for ACCEPT. But most of all, we want to thank our fans without whom we would be nothing! THANK YOU!"

Due 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).
