Accept: New Video For "Teutonic Terror" Made From Fan-filmed Footage
Reformed heavy metal legends Accept have released a new video for the song "Teutonic Terror" featuring footage that was compiled using over 100 fan-filmed concert clips.
Commented Accept guitarist Wolf Hoffmann: "It's amazing now everyone has a camera and can videotape the shows. Back in the day it was a big issue with people bootlegging concerts, [and] now everyone does it. Five minutes after the show's over, it's on YouTube, so we thought this would be a fun way to embrace it rather than to fight against it.
"Back in '85 we did a live album in Japan which was called 'Kaizoku-Ban', which roughly translates to 'Bootleg', so I guess this is our 2011 answer to that.
"It's been a amazing ride, and it's far from over."
