Accept is a German heavy metal band from the town of Solingen, originally assembled in the early 1970s by Udo Dirkschneider. They played an important role in the development of speed metal and Teutonic thrash metal, being part of the German heavy/speed/power metal scene to emerge in the early to mid 1980s along with bands such as Helloween, Running Wild, Grave Digger, Sinner, and Rage. The band's 1983 album, Balls to the Wall, subsequently became their most successful release, featuring its well-known hit with the same title.

Early years (1976-1982)

Accept was originally founded in 1968 by Udo Dirkschneider and Michael Wagener under the name Band X. For many years after its founding, Accept went through constant changes to its line-up and was essentially kept on an amateur level, making sporadic appearances in festival concerts.

ACCEPT Russian Roulette

Album · 1986 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Accept could have kept Dieter Dierks on as producer and cranked out another album or seven rehashing Metal Heart over and over, but that didn't appeal to them and on Russian Roulette they went back to producing their own material.

Props to them to making a firm decision to make records the way they enjoyed and which was creatively satisfying to them, even though the alternative might have made them heaps of money, right? But there's a mild problem, in that they don't seem to have a firm idea on a new direction; at points they seem to be trying to go for the darker tone of something like Breaker, whilst at other stages they seem to be back to the anthemic tone of Balls to the Wall, but whilst Metal Heart sounded like a strong and forceful blending of the two styles here they just don't seem to have a firm idea of where they want to go.

Udo would drop out of the band to get U.D.O. going after this, and perhaps it was time; it's not that Russian Roulette is a bad album, but it isn't a great album either, and it feels like the Accept well was beginning to dry up here.

ACCEPT Metal Heart

Album · 1985 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Metal Heart would see Accept achieve the perfect fusion of the fast, furious, aggressive style they pioneered on Breaker and the more anthemic chant-along style they brought out on Balls To the Wall, yielding a true classic which seems less beholden to their influences like Judas Priest. If there is a distinctive, definitively "Accept" sound, it is to be found here.

Dieter Dierks deserves at least some of the credit for his production and arrangements. In the long run, it's probably best that Accept and Dierks parted ways after this - Udo Dirkschneider has said that Dierks wanted to make the band sound more like Scorpions, which I feel would have been a mistake - his assistance here is just what the band needed to produce a thumping classic, a perfect fusion of catchy accessibility on the one hand and raw, violent passion on the other.

ACCEPT Balls to the Wall

Album · 1983 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Balls to the Wall finds Accept pulling off a masterpiece of what I like to think of as "anthem metal" - metal with strong, punchy lyrics that seem to be crafted for crowds to chant along to. Accept's major influence on this front is Judas Priest, but here they match Priest at their own game, and at the same time aren't afraid to tackle subject matter which at the time was decidedly risky by presenting sympathetic takes on oft-overlooked subcultures. London Leatherboys is supposedly not so much about the gay scene as bikers - Love Child, however, is about sexuality and gender questioning and all that, topics which some quarters of metal still seem reluctant to address (and some in the scene are actively hostile to) to this day.

Despite taking on subjects that the conventional wisdom at the time might have thought were commercial suicide, Accept instead made this one of their biggest successes, and it's not hard to see why - where the material isn't quite as fast as aggressive as the previous two albums, it makes up for it by being infectiously catchy, making this another top-tier release for the band.

ACCEPT Restless and Wild

Album · 1982 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
"Restless and Wild" is certainly an apt description of Accept's music, but to me this one isn't quite as immediately gripping as the preceding Breaker. Part of that is because the musical approach here is a bit less focused, with more experiments in working in more complex guitar passages and the like to keep up with what the likes of Iron Maiden were doing with their sound at the time.

In other words, it feels like a bit of a transitional album to me - but to give them their due, few bands manage to make such transitions sound as compelling and exciting as Accept do, and it certainly isn't a disappointment on any account.

ACCEPT Breaker

Album · 1981 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
This one is aptly named, because Breaker was Accept's breakthrough album - the moment where they hit on a distinctive sound, made a conscious decision to stop pandering to other people's expectations, and let rip with their own brand of metal. Their sound here may owe an awful lot to Judas Priest, but they were hardly alone in this at the time and if you're going to be influenced by someone it may as well be one of the true greats, and their fast and furious update of Priest's classic sound means that this German crew wouldn't sound out of place popping over the English channel to take on the NWOBHM bands at their own game and win.
