Forming in Germany in 1971, Accept is lauded as one of the originators of the German heavy metal movement. Led by razorblade-gargling vocalist Udo Dirkschneider and guitar god Wolf Hoffmann, Accept took the melodic elements of fellow countrymen Scorpions and infused them with the back alley menace of AC/DC. This led to a string of Billboard Top 200 charting albums and the band’s signature song in 1983, “Balls to the Wall." Since the late '80s, the members of Accept launched successful solo careers, but every now and again, they reunite to give the world another dose of streetwise aggression. ~ Mark Morton
