Accept’s new Teutonic metal masterpiece “Humanoid”!

Iconic heavy metal institution Accept have released their second new single, “The Reckoning”, off of their highly anticipated album, “Humanoid”, out April 26th, 2024! The dark accompanying music video channels Accept’s captivating live energy and matches the sinister instrumentation and apocalyptic lyrics of the track.

Formed in 1976, Accept was the first internationally successful German heavy metal band. Currently, the frontrunners are again at the top of the international heavy metal scene, having stormed the charts with their latest album, “Too Mean To Die”, peaking at #2 on the Official German Album Charts. Order your copy of Accept’s next masterpiece, “Humanoid”, now, and check out the official music video for “The Reckoning” below for a taste of what’s to come!

Wolf Hoffmann on “The Reckoning”:

“We’re thrilled to release ‘The Reckoning’ as our second single. It’s is one of our favorites from the new album: hard hitting, solid metal with lyrics about a poignant life theme. We hope the fans enjoy it as much as we do! “

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” and the #1 charting 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.
