Balls To The Wall 2CD - Accept

Balls To The Wall 2CD
Originally released at the end of 1983, "Balls To the Wall” is the fifth album by the influential German heavy metal band Accept.
Taking much of their inspiration from the likes of fellow German hard-rockers the Scorpions, as well as a debt to UK metal legends Judas Priest, Accept were fronted by the inimitable Udo Dirkschneider on vocals, backed by lead guitar heroes Wolf Hoffmann and Herman Frank.
Controversial at the time for its cover and some of the album’s themes, it was also their greatest commercial success, reaching number 75 inthe US Billboard Hot 100. "Balls To The Wall” received gold status in the US, partly off the back of the heavy rotation the title track’s video received on MTV.
The album is now backed by the bonus CD "Staying A Life”, a live album recorded at the Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan on 18th September 1985. As well as storming live versions of key tracks from "Balls To The Wall”, it features many Accept classics including ‘Breaker’, ‘Princess Of The Dawn’, ‘Restless And Wild’, ‘Son Of A Bitch’ and ‘Fast As A Shark’.
An expanded booklet features new liner notes from Classic Rock and Metal Hammer’s Malcolm Dome, commissioned for this release.

Metal Heart/Kaizoku-Ban - Live in Japan
"Metal Heart”, Accept’s sixth studio album, was their second major label release after 1983’s "Balls to The Wall”. Their 1985 record found the legendary and highly influential German heavy metal band go in a slightly more US radio-friendly than their previous releases, particularly on the single ‘Midnight Mover’.
This edition now includes the Japanese live mini-album "Kaizoku-Ban” in its entirety, recorded in Nagoya, Japan, on September 19, 1985 on the Japanese leg of the band’s Metal Heart world tour. "Kaizoku-Ban” features ‘Metal Heart’, ‘Screaming For A Love-Bite’ and ‘Up To The Limit’ from "Metal Heart” and ‘Head Over Heels’, ‘Love Child’ and ‘Living For Tonite’ from their previous long-player, "Balls to The Wall”.
The album was their first to be produced by famed German producer Dieter Dirks, best known for his work with fellow Teutonic rockers, the Scorpions.
This varied album strays into jazz territory on ‘Teach Us To Survive’ and even classical themes, with parts of Tchaikovsky's ‘Slavonic March’ and Beethoven's ‘Für Elise’ featured during the title track.
 The 16 page booklet features liner notes from Metal Hammer and Classic Rock’s Malcolm Dome based on a new interview with the band’s Wolf Hoffman.

Russian Roulette
•    The 7th studio album by German heavy metal heroes Accept, "Russian Roulette” was originally released in 1986. Recorded at famed Dierks Studios in Germany, the album was produced by the band themselves.

•    The last Accept LP to feature Udo Dirkschneider, until his return in 1993, the album finds Accept returning to darker tones and a heavier sound to that of the more commercially orientated previous record, "Metal Heart”. The artwork and themes of the record reflects an era when the cold war still at its height, and the fall of the Berlin wall still more than three years away.

•    This remastered version features 3 live bonus tracks recorded on their 1985 Japanese tour; ‘Burning’, ‘Head Over Heels’ and ‘Neon Nights’. Also available from HNE Recordings by Accept are the 2CD "Balls To The Wall” with a bonus live CD of "Staying A Life - Live In Japan” and "Metal Heart” backed with the bonus mini-album "Kaizuko-Ban”.

•    This version features new liner notes from Classic Rock and Metal Hammer’s Malcolm Dome, based on recent interviews with original members Wolf Hoffmann and Stefan Kaufmann.

•    This CD is released 21st April and will not be shipped prior to this date.
