Blind Rage is the upcoming fourteenth studio album by German heavy metal band Accept. Let me tell you right now, it kicks some ass.

Accept at this point doesn't need to prove themselves, their music says it all. The album "Blind Rage" is the fourteenth studio album and the 3rd installment with Mark Tornillo (vocalist), and he nails it, with that ever classic old school metal.  Wolf (guitar), and Peter (bass) are precise and have been doing this for a long time, and they know how to get the party started, with tight killer riffs, speed, fabulous bass and adrenaline . Plus the oh so ever first rate solos by Wolf. Let us not forget the memorable drummer Stefan who is brutal with those drum beats, Herman (guitarist) has some fantastic riffs and at times shows off his ability. The album is filled with those classic melodies and that flawless rock, add to that, some aggression and rage, and it’s what we have come to expect from Accept. You can't go wrong with this album. You can tell they love what they do, and have taken the time to put some thought into what they wanted to put out there for the fans. And there is nothing better than having an album like this, from the first to the last, I was rockin out, and when it goes in the car, its LOUD, and you just can’t help but sing along. Now that is an album, don’t you agree.

If you haven’t had the chance to give it a listen, here is one for you,

Accept: "Stampede"
