Tuetonic titans of tumultuous thrash metal, Germany’s Accept, will return with their fourth outing for Nuclear Blast Records on August 4th. Titled ‘The Rise Of Chaos‘, will continue the tradition of its most recent three predecessors – Blood Of The Nations, Stalingrad, and Blind Rage – with grandeur and precision. The longrunning, legendary band seem to only be getting better and better with the passage of time and it is safe to say the new album will bolster that fact.
Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann comments: “The Rise Of Chaos is something I have been thinking about often. Wherever we go – there is some hidden as well as some visible destruction and it kind of changes the world we know. What was there today – can be gone tomorrow and it’s somehow irritating, because it happens on so many levels and no one knows what comes next. The cover is our last stage set – but now clearly “destroyed” – like… after a catastrophe”
The Rise Of Chaos tracklisting:
“Die By The Sword”
“Hole In The Head”
“The Rise Of Chaos”
“What’s Done Is Done”
“Carry The Weight”
“Race To Extinction”
And if this wasn’t enough, Accept will celebrate the album’s live premiere exclusively on August 3rd, on the day before its release, as a part of a special show at Wacken Open Air, Germany.
