ACCEPT — Breaker (review)

5/5 ·
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.
