ACCEPT Issue Live Performance Video Of ‘Die By The Sword’ At Wacken Open Air
August 11th, 2017

German / American heavy metal band Accept have released a live performance video for the track ‘Die By The Sword’. Filmed during the band’s performance at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany on August 3rd, 2017, the clip can be viewed below.

Accept issued 15th full-length studio album The Rise Of Chaos on August 4th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records.

Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann issued the following statement: “‘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 is our last stage set, but now clearly ’destroyed’ — like… after a catastrophe.”

The Rise Of Chaos marks the first Accept platter to be recorded with guitarist Uwe Lulis and drummer Christopher Williams.

Cover artwork duties fell to Hungarian artist Gyula Havancsák.

The track listing is as follows:

01. ‘Die By The Sword’
02. ‘Hole In The Head’
03. ‘The Rise Of Chaos’
04. ‘Koolaid’
05. ‘No Regrets’
06. ‘Analog Man’
07. ‘What’s Done Is Done’
08. ‘Worlds Colliding’
09. ‘Carry The Weight’
10. ‘Race To Extinction’

Accept’s line-up is as follows:

Mark Tornillo (vocals)
Wolf Hoffmann (guitar)
Uwe Lulis (guitar)
Peter Baltes (bass)
Christopher Williams (drums)

Directed by Scott Diussa, a music video was filmed for the title track. In addition, an official lyric video was created for the song ‘Koolaid’. Both clips can be viewed below.

Fourteenth studio record Blind Rage was released in August 2014 via Nuclear Blast.
