The Rise of Chaos World Tour
Teutonic metallers ACCEPT could already claim big worldwide success with Â»Blood Of The NationsÂ« and Â»StalingradÂ«, but with Â»Blind RageÂ«, they reached the pinnacle of their career in the form of the pole position, a #1 album. Besides #1 in Germany, ACCEPT also hit #1 in Finland as well as several top 10 positions; Czech Republic, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and last but not least the US. After releasing a string of metal classics in the 80s such as Â»BreakerÂ« (1981), Â»Balls To The WallÂ« (1983) and Â»Metal HeartÂ« (1985), which made them iconic, the band with Wolf Hoffmann and Peter Baltes still havenâ€™t peaked, especially if you glance across their touring schedule; ACCEPT have headlined Woodstock Festival Poland, Wacken Open Air, Czech Masters Of Rock Festival and Bang Your Head!!! Festival, Germany – amongst countless other performances over the last few years. Their Bang Your Head!!! performance was also filmed and released in the form of a live DVD/Blu-ray+2CD package titled Â»Restless And LiveÂ« (2017), reminiscent of their classic Â»Restless And WildÂ« (1982). With this DVD in the fansâ€™ hands, ACCEPT could cement their previous success from Â»Blind RageÂ« by hitting #1 in the Swedish and German DVD charts amongst others.
But thatâ€™s enough nostalgia – back to the present, back to 2017! After the aforementioned DVDâ€™s unleashing and an almost 3-month European tour, ACCEPT speed around the corner with their new album Â»The Rise Of ChaosÂ« which will cement their status as genre leaders once again. Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann comments on the album title, â€śÂ»The Rise Of ChaosÂ« is something I have been thinking about often. It describes a condition which is slowly spreading around the world. With the stage setup on our latest European tour, we wanted to portray rather dystopian and destroyed scenery. If you now take a look at our new cover, itâ€™s the same imagery. This time however you can also spot the invisible destruction that we feel more and more in these times, as well as the visible destruction.â€ť
The songs from Â»The Rise Of ChaosÂ« will be performed for the very first time at Wacken Open Air 2017â€™s Â»Night To RememberÂ«. Besides new ACCEPT tracks, Wolf Hoffmann will also bring his latest solo album titled Â»Headbangers SymphonyÂ« (2016), which showcases famous pieces by classical composers such as Beethoven, Vivaldi and Mozart (specially arranged for the metal world) on the stage for the first time ever.
