After conquering the rock world with their own teutonic brand of heavy metal in the 1980s with “Balls To The Wall” (1983) and “Metal Heart” (1985), Accept parted ways with original singer and frontman Udo Dirkschneider following the release of 1986’s “Russian Roulette”. Although a sound and commercially propulsed effort, 1989’s “Eat The Heat” featuring David Reece on vocals was not what Accept’s fans had come to expect, whilst their former singer followed a more metal direction with his eponymously named U.D.O. After the release of “Staying A Life”, a 1985 live archive recording featuring their former singer, a reunion was inevitable.
Accept “Objection Overruled” – Released April 6th!
Scaled down to Udo Dirkschneider on vocals, Wolf Hoffmann on guitar, Peter Baltes on bass guitar and Stefan Kaufmann on drums, 1993’s “Objection Overruled” is certainly a return to form for these German metal legends.
Featuring 11 tracks, it includes the singles ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Like You’, ‘All or Nothing’ and the self-explanatory ‘Slaves To Metal’, written and produced by the band in conjunction with long term collaborator Deaffy.
With expanded artwork, and liner notes by Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with the band, “Objection Overruled” is a worthy addition to Accept’s HNE catalogue. Also available are “Balls To The Wall” (HNECD018D), “Metal Heart” (HNECD022), “Russian Roulette” (HNECD029) and ‘Eat The Heat” (HNECD030), all of which are available with bonus content. Also available is the double live “ALL AREAS – WORLDWIDE LIVE” (HNECD040D).
N.B. This title is released 6th April and will not be dispatched before this date.
