Heavy metal pioneers ACCEPT are back in the game with a new studio album! The record entitled “The Rise Of Chaos”, will be unleashed on August 4th, 2017. The band’s 4th studio release through Nuclear Blast will continue the tradition of its three predecessors – “Blood Of The Nations”, “Stalingrad”, and “Blind Rage” – with grandeur and precision.
The band have released their third album trailer in which Wolf Hoffmann explains the album title and why it fits so perfectly in today’s world. If you want to find out about the connection between the new ACCEPT album and the rise of chaos in our world, watch the clip here:
Wolf states: “The more you look at the news nowadays, the more the album title fits because times get pretty chaotic these days. Things seem to be getting more and more extreme. Violence and terror will often result in even more violence. Stephen Hawking or somebody once said that in a hundred years from now, there won’t be any more people on this planet. We will be all extinct one day because we might have killed ourselves. Who knows? But it’s certainly an interesting thought…”
“»The Rise Of Chaos« is something I have been thinking about often. Wherever we go – there is some hidden as well as some visible destruction and it kind of changes the world we know. What was there today – can be gone tomorrow and it’s somehow irritating, because it happens on so many levels and no one knows what comes next. The cover portrays our last stage set-up – but now clearly “destroyed” – like… after a catastrophe”, explains Wolf Hoffmann.
