Iconic German heavy metal act Accept, which was recently covered in our Sunday Old School column, has reunited with a new vocalist to release the band's first album in 14 years. Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann recently discussed the band meeting up with new singer Mark Tornillo of TT Quick and the creation of the latest album, "Blood of the Nations."
While explaining the sound of the band's latest addition to heavy metal, Wolf stated, "It’s really not that different honestly. It’s pretty much what people would expect from Accept.

Wolf also covered the band's upcoming tour schedule and the various Accept cover tunes that have appeared over the years. More...
