Wolf and the boys in Accept have done it again. I have been eagerly waiting for Blind Rage, the follow up to Stalingrad that comes out this Aug. 19th on Nuclear Blast. It is fair to say that “Final Journey”, the latest track from the record, is pretty much a perfect heavy metal song. Mark Tornillo owns this vocal performance like it is the most important thing he has ever sung and the band are on FIRE. The pre-solo section into the solo is especially invigorating. This pumped me up!!
Today, NPR premieres the new ACCEPT song “Final Journey” from Blind Rage, saying, “it is surprising to hear Edvard Grieg’s “Morning Mood” in the last minutes of “Final Journey,” especially pitting Grieg’s theme that conjures spring and new-ness to a song about death.” Check out the NPR premiere of ACCEPT’s “Final Journey” now at THIS location.
