“Whatever we do on record, it’s almost there for eternity,” ACCEPT guitarist Wolf Hoffmann recently told Patrick Prince of Powerline Magazine. “That’s good and bad. That means to me you better be super careful with what you release because if it sucks, it’s out there and you have to live with it for the rest of your life. But the opposite is true, obviously, if you do something great it’s not something people throw away tomorrow. It’s really there for the next years and in some cases, songs we wrote 30 years ago are still loved by fans today. I mean, my God, I’ve been playing ‘Princess Of The Dawn’ for like 35 years and I still love it and people still like it. So, who would’ve thought. That teaches you a lesson you better be careful with what you release. Make sure you like it yourself.”
