The legendary German metaller and ACCEPT‘s guitar player, Wolf Hoffmann has been busy working on a new solo album during ACCEPT‘s touring break. He has recently had a chat with our Alison Booth and updated us: “When we took some time off, that’s not completely true, because I didn’t take the time off, I was working on the classical album. I was actually finishing all my guitar tracks.” Wolf continues “I’m still in the last days of mixing this album and so hopefully early next year it can come out. I’m very excited about it, I think it’s going to be very cool.“
It will be Wolf Hoffmann‘s second solo album, being about 18 years since the release of his first one, “Classical“, which was released on September 22nd, 1997 via Sony. It was a Neo-Classical Rock album, including 12 tracks influenced by a selection of the best classical music pieces, converted to rock and blues. The album received very good vibes from the fans and critics and now, after all of these years of waiting, Wolf is set to repeat that success and bring joy to all his fans. He explains: “It’s something I’ve been working on for so many years now, that I can’t wait to have it out. It feels like a lifetime project almost, because I could always only work on it when Accept wasn’t busy. So, it was a couple of week’s here, a couple of weeks there and I could never really devote myself full time to it, only sections at a time. But yeah, I’m glad to finally be nearing completion!“
