Accept: New Album Entitled "Stalingrad"; April 2012 Release
have received confirmation that reformed Accept have
set "Stalingrad" as
the title of their next album, due in April 2012 via Nuclear
Blast Records. The CD is once again being helmed by British
producer Andy Sneap(Megadeth, Exodus, Nevermore, Arch
Enemy), who worked on the band's critically acclaimed comeback
effort, "Blood Of The
Commented Accept guitarist Wolf
Hoffman: "Accept and Andy
the perfect synergy. This was so clear with 'Blood Of The
we are excited to continue on that path. Andy is
not only an amazing and prolific producer but also a very good friend
who has long become a member of the Accept family."
the musical direction of Accept's next album, Hoffmanntold The
Rock Pit earlier
this year, "We're just gonna have the same attitude, the
approach; we're just gonna do more of the same, you know, without it
being the same. More similar-style stuff, hopefully fresh new ideas.
And I mean, we're not gonna… The intention is not to change it
right now. I mean, why would we? . . . But I have to say, it's always
easier said than done. It's incredibly difficult to write songs that
are sort of reminiscent of the past but they're not, you know,
rip-offs of your own music. That sounds incredibly very simple, but
it's really not, especially if you have a sort of history of 15
albums or whatever we have. Then there are always similarities that
you have to avoid. It can't be too close, but it can't be too far
away from it. So it's a pretty fine line that you have to walk
sometimes, but, you know, hopefully we'll manage again."
No track list or cover art work has been revealed yet. Stay tuned...
