Metal heavyweights ACCEPT are back on the road again with their “Blind Rage Part IV” tour, finishing on 16th December in Bulgaria. The stalwarts of the metal world have travelled the globe since the release of their current and 14th album “Blind Rage” in 2014, which hit number one in the charts in Germany and Finland, delivering dynamic performances over and over again to faithful fans, now spanning generations.
Metal Shock Finland Senior Manager Alison Booth also has a radio show, Blackdiamond’s Metal Mayhem, every Tuesday from 6PM on http://www.totalrock.com. She recently had a chat with Wolf, as part of the show’s third birthday celebrations, prior to ACCEPT‘s one-off UK show at The Forum in London on 7th December. Wolf spoke of the forthcoming tour and plans for the follow up to their last album “Blind Rage”. We already posted some news from this interview about Wolf‘s next classical album which you can read about here.
The full show will soon be online at this location and you can listen to the chat with Wolf on the audio player below.
Discussing future plans and when the next ACCEPT album will be unleashed, Wolf explained:
“We’ve been hitting it so hard these last five years. We could’ve already started, but it was so nice not to jump right into the studio after all this touring for Blind Rage.
In January Peter and I will lock ourselves away and the cycle will start again. It’s gonna be ready when it’s gonna be ready, but we’re trying to get something out next year, or something ready next year, recorded.”

German melodic power metal pioneers HELLOWEEN inked a deal with their old label home Nuclear Blast earlier in 2014, where they previously released two albums – “The Dark Ride” (2000) and “Rabbit Don’t Come Easy” (2003) and have entered into their very own MiSueno Studios, located on the isle of Tenerife, to get busy working on the successor to “Straight Out Of Hell”. Since then, the band have been very quiet and answer to no interview, as they want to focus on their work, to bring their fans the true power metal awesomeness again. But our very own Blackdiamond, who also presents a weekly show on one of the best British rock radio stations, Total Rock, was recently was successful to have some time with guitarist Michael Weikath for a chat and discuss subjects such as HELLOWEEN, their upcoming release and Halloween.
HELLOWEEN‘s die-hard fans, who would like to know more about their pumpkin heads can tune in to www.totalrock.com on Blackdiamond’s Metal Mayhem special Halloween Party Show, on Tuesday October 28th at 10 AM (GMT). For those who will not able to listen to this very special show, we at Metal Shock Finland will publish this interview three days after, on October 31st.
