Accept unveil Blind Rage

Accept have revealed their 14th studio album is to be called Blind Rage, and it's set for launch on July 18 via Nuclear Blast.

It’s the German veterans’ third release since reuniting in 2009 behind American vocalist Mark Tornillo, and follows their two best-charting records of all time: 2010’s Blood Of The Nations and 2012’s Stalingrad.

Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann says: “Something happened to us – something subliminal and impetuous. It’s wild and scary, and it’s called Blind Rage.

“The cover artwork by Daniel Goldsworthy shows the beast coming over us in blind rage, all over the planet. Wherever we go, whenever you turn on the TV there’s blind rage in the works – natural catastrophes or man-made madness.”

Produced by Andy Sneap, the album is described as having more of a classic feel than Tornillo’s previous outings, but with a range of recent influences offering a subtle sense of modernity.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
