Teutonic metallers ACCEPT could already claim big worldwide success with »Blood Of The Nations« and »Stalingrad«, but with »Blind Rage«, they reached the pinnacle of their career in the form of the pole position, a #1 album. Besides #1 in Germany, ACCEPT also hit #1 in Finland as well as several top 10 positions; Czech Republic, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and last but not least the US. After releasing a string of metal classics in the 80s such as »Breaker« (1981), »BallsToTheWall« (1983) and »MetalHeart« (1985), which made them iconic, the band with WolfHoffmann and PeterBaltes still haven’t peaked, especially if you glance across their touring schedule; ACCEPT have headlined WoodstockFestivalPoland, WackenOpenAir, Czech MastersOfRockFestival and BangYourHead!!!Festival, Germany - amongst countless other performances over the last few years. Their BangYourHead!!! performance was also filmed and released in the form of a live DVD/Blu-ray+2CD package titled »RestlessAndLive« (2017), reminiscent of their classic »RestlessAndWild« (1982). With this DVD in the fans’ hands, ACCEPT could cement their previous success from »BlindRage« by hitting #1 in the Swedish and German DVD charts amongst others.
