1 – The Rise Of Chaos
Perfection is what should be expected from the legendary ACCEPT’s work and it has always been like that. But since 2010 when they returned to the scene with Mark Tornillo as the new vocalist, they brought more maturity to their music. ACCEPT now is wiser and more serious, both in music and lyrics! They are now proudly preparing to release their 15th studio album, “The Rise Of Chaos”, on August 4th, but to bring the flames of excitement into their fans camp, they released the title track single on June 2nd.
‘The Rise Of Chaos’ is not far from ACCEPT’s metal tradition, heavy and epic music with powerful riffs and thick sounds, which is accompanied by heart touching solos. But in this particular song they used a different structure in the verses, pre-choruses, choruses and bridges. In the verses, Mark has chosen shorter sentences with quite strong stops which match the thrashy riffs in the background. The pre-choruses seem to be longer than usual, with more old school heavy metal riffs joining the choruses, almost like a conversation between the band as a choir and Mark as the lead vocalist, something that the band used previously on the ‘Fall of the Empire’ song. The main riff in this song has a thrashy feel which is extended throughout the whole of track, inviting listeners to join in head banging.
‘The Rise Of Chaos’ is actually a great preamble, giving fans a taste of what can be expected on ACCEPT’s upcoming album. It is also another non fictional masterpiece and a very realistic comment from the band, based on the facts of what is happening in the world today!
