The fifteenth full-length studio album by the legendary German Heavy Metal band.
The 15th long-play from the venerable Metallers, "The Rise Of Chaos" is Accept's fourth full-length since re-forming in 2009 with vocalist Mark Tornillo (original frontman Udo Dirkschneider left the band in 1987). It's also the first LP to feature new guitarist Uwe Lulis and drummer Christopher Williams, but fans of 2014's surprisingly vital-sounding "Blind Rage" will be pleased to hear that Accept 2.0 is still a force to be reckoned with, especially if one's tastes lean toward the kind of uncompromising, no-frills Euro-Metal that filled stadiums in the 1980s. Those who are expecting a big change in sound with the new incarnation (Swartzmann and Frank out / Williams and Lulis in) of this veteran outfit might be disappointed. But for those wanting more of the same Hard Rock/Classic Power/Heavy Metal Accept has been cranking out for decades, "The Rise Of Chaos" delivers – for the most part. After all, the same four guys who have been producing these albums (Tornillo, Baltes, the venerable Wolf Hoffmann and Sneep) since 2010’s crushing "Blood Of The Nations" are still at the helm. Not surprisingly then, the sound recording quality, the guitar leads and solos, the solid, straight-ahead drum rhythms and the Udo/Halford vocals of Tornillo (who continues to excel by the way) still dominate. And the melodies and catchy “gang-choruses” are still pretty darn good. The only problem is that this formula sounds just a bit tired this time around – some of these songs lacking slightly the intensity of the preceding 3 releases.
“Die By The Sword” and the title track are pretty classic Accept Metal anthems, filled with great riffs, solos and those infectious chorus chants. Even the somewhat more "radio" friendly, AC/DC-like “Koolaid” (about the Jonestown massacre), has enough edge to keep things engaging. “Analog Man” is another highlight for sure, at least from a lyrical standpoint, and one of the most fun songs here. “Carry the Weight” is a solid speedy rocker with a too truthful message. On the other hand, the mid-tempo tracks “No Regrets” and “What’s Done is Done” are good, yet nothing new. “Hole in the Head” is pretty ordinary musically with lyrics which are almost too cliché.
Overall, this is still Accept to the core, and there is plenty here to be excited about!!
