Blood of the Nations
9/1/2010 - Review by: Eric Compton
Stunning comeback record from these German traditional pioneers
This is a tough pill to swallow. I really love this new album, yet as good as it is, it doesn’t assuage the fact that Udo should be singing these songs. We know the traumatic effects of a Udo led Accept, thus the inevitable break-ups through the years that eventually led to Mark Tornillo (T.T. Quick) becoming the full-time vocalist in 2009. The line-up of Baltes, Frank, Hoffman and Schwarzmann is astounding as a package with Andy Sneap’s high yielding production standards. ‘Blood of the Nations’ has the Teutonic metal fury we’ve come to know and adore from these Germans. Highlights are the gang-led choruses of “Beat the Bastards Down”, “Teutonic Terror” and the spirited “Blood of the Nations”. Tornillo nails that high raspy delivery perfectly and, based on this recording alone, would have been my obvious choice as the replacement. With all that said, I still feel damn shameful playing it for some reason.
