Accept | 'Humanoid' | Behind The Scenes Of The Video

Accept - 'Humanoid'
Full length album νούμερο 17 για τους Accept. "Humanoid" ο τίτλος και κυκλοφόρησε προ ημερών. Παρακολουθούμε το βίντεο με τα παρασκήνια των "γυρισμάτων" του βίντεο του ομότιτλου τραγουδιού.

Το μακρινό 1968 σχηματίσθηκαν οι Band X. Πέραν του Udo Dirkschneider στην μπάντα βρίσκουμε (ως κιθαρίστα) και τον Michael Wagener, ο οποίος στην πορεία εξελίχθηκε σε έναν από τους διασημότερους μουσικούς παραγωγούς (το όνομά του φιγουράρει σε δίσκους των Ozzy Osbourne, Accept, Metallica, Dokken, Leatherwolf, Helloween, Raven, Overkill, Megadeth, Testament, Flotsam and Jetsam και δεκάδων ακόμη).

Το 1976 ο Udo άλλαξε τους μουσικούς και μαζί και το όνομα του συγκροτήματος, από Band X σε Accept. Οι Γερμανοί metallers έμειναν ενεργοί μέχρι το 1989 κι επανήλθαν το 1992 (για μία πενταετία). Το 2005 επανασυνδέθηκαν για μία περιοδεία, ενώ το 2009 επανήλθαν "κανονικά" συνεχίζοντας μέχρι τις ημέρες μας και κάπως έτσι γράφεται η (heavy metal) ιστορία...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Founded in 1976, Accept, the long-standing legendary German titans of heavy metal, are back with a fiercely awaited and highly acclaimed new studio album, entitled Humanoid, to be released on the 26th of April, 2024 via Napalm Records.

Once again finalized by leading metal producer Andy Sneap (Judas Priest, Amon Amarth, Testament, Saxon, etc.) at his Backstage Recording Studios Ltd. in Derbyshire, UK, Humanoid is a towering musical achievement and another world class entry in the Accept catalog, certain to rally fans from around the world.

Humanoid will be available in various formats worldwide, some of them strictly limited. Humanoid joins absolute genre classics like Balls To The Wall, certified Gold in USA and Canada, Metal Heart, and newer masterpieces like Blood of the Nations or the #1 album Blind Rage.

Their albums regularly place in national Top 10 sales charts, with global sales in excess of 17 million to date. Accept have never shied away from hot button issues, and this album is no exception. Yet the band’s 17th studio album is certainly not a concept album.

It deals with topics like AI and how our reliance on technology is gradually stripping away our individuality. Accept offers a warning in this new album and title track single Humanoid.

Since singer Mark Tornillo will never be an advocate for the digital age, he counterbalances the title track with raw emotions, frailties, significant Rites of Passage we encounter on the path of life and characteristics that make us uniquely human: feeling uncomfortable, getting older, dealing with hurt, disappointment, and the final stop for everyone: death.

Humanoid is a ferociously electrifying, dynamic and subtly nuanced platter with tongue in cheek humor, biblical references in “The Reckoning” - an ode to concert audiences - a thrilling new spin on the “Frankenstein” story and “Straight Up Jack” - a track that surely would have been a Bon Scott approved drinking song.

The opening track “Diving into Sin” gives listeners a hair-raising energetic jolt with its Middle Eastern influenced intro, and an almost aggressive, screaming vocal from Tornillo setting the rest of the album up for a most bountiful feast.

"Unbreakable" is as much about the band as it is the bond between Accept and their fans, in the concert arena - an easy going “Hey, let’s do this, ‘kind of rock song.” "Mind Games", on the other hand, has a vintage feel, circa “Metal Heart”.

"No One Gets Out Alive" seems tailor made for live shows. It says that regardless of life's circumstances, rich, famous, or not, death is the great equalizer. The good ole’ drinking song, "Straight Up Jack" utilizes many euphemisms for ordering at the bar.

Upbeat and aggressive with guitar interplay, "Southside Of Hell" ends the disc with a wonderful bit of wordplay, courtesy of Tornillo. Humanoid is an album that targets the head, heart, gut and... balls! Listen for yourself!»
