Since I listened Blood Of The Nations the latest album of German titans ACCEPT last year, it got me, it even made it my top 10 of 2010, but when I got news that they were coming to the valley of the sun, I knew that I have to go and see them perform such album live, and yesterday that happened. they played in a festival called U-fest in Mesa, AZ
Their show was amazing a total trip to the 80’s with songs like Metal Heart, Breaker, Up To The Limit and of course Balls To The Walls, also the songs of their new record sounded great live, Teutonic Terror, Pandemic and New World Comin made it clear, ACCEPT is back and stronger than ever.
