I think 'serviceable' is a perfect description of them actually.

Yeah, he's going to do a tour. Not sure why Wolf feels like he needs three guitarists in the band.

Also, I'm ready for some new Accept music.

Since 2019 apparently.  Has it been that longed since I've watched some footage?  Didn't even realise that when I picked up the last album either.

That makes no sense, Wolf is really the only lead player.  The only benefit it would have would to some rhythm under the harmonies but it's never needed IMO.

Also Tim, yeah the Satans' Fall album, I listened to it again today in the car when out and yeah, there's a few songs there that totally scream recent Accept, the second track especially.  Dead ringer.

The band also announced that Mark is now officially the longest serving singer of Accept.  That is mind boggling.

Mark has done a great job, but Balls to the Wall, Restless and Wild and Metal Heart are my go to's for the band.

I was never much of a fan of TS to be honest. They were just too basic, and this coming from a KISS fan! That Widowmaker album is quality though.

Hey Paul!!  Good to see you, hope you are well.

I am mate, thanks. Donít get around here much these days. Not online much ata all really. Life has got busy. Hope the gang is all well.

Yet when DT does it, it's lame or cheesy.  ::)

Which DT song are we talking about? If you're talking The Alien, that's a totally different subject matter. Plus, I rate The Alien at #16 in my DT Top 100!


I have to admit, when I saw the title, There's Something In Roswell, I kind of cringed. Other than the chorus, this song kicks ass though. The verses are classic Saxon.

But back to the title and subject, I feel the same thing about Hangar 18. I do find the subject matter cheesy.

I was just having a bit of a laugh.  Plus, I personally have never had an issue with the lyrics to The Alien.  Plus it even cracked my you 100.

Like Tim said, the subject matter is still a bit cheesy, hence my tongue in cheek statement in the first place, but who gives a fuck hey.

I always find the "cheesy" accusation amusing given a lot of people's favorite artists here, and even the house band a decent amount of the time.

Found this Biff Byford interview by Rodrigo!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVu7pr_HKA4


@ Rodrigo...nice job with the interview. Biff sounded pretty engaged, so kudos because you're probably the 2 millionth guy to interview him!  Love the conversation around the 90's time period.

Also, I thought you were younger than you actually are.

I'll check that out a bit later.

The new album is solid as fuck, really enjoying it.  Feels more straight ahead and a bit stripped down and less metal than the last couple but it's great.  Love the addition of Brian.  His leads a super tasty and works really well alongside Doug.

I agree. This album hits the spot.

Jimmy Waldo talking about Graham Bonnet lip syncing during live shows. I had my suspicions after Graham started sounding consistently good during the videos I've seen as he was usually very hit and miss. I think he's eased up on them a bit as I've heard newer shows that certainly sound live but I'm starting to understand more and more why they took the manager's side in the split.

Thanks man! And yeah, it's difficult to get the artists excited when they've talked about the album extensively. In this case, it was the last slot with Biff for the day, and he was late because the previous interview lasted too long. In other words...this interview had everything to come out terribly boring. I studied other interviews he had done and decided to ask very different questions - the one about them doing a concept album, or addressing the reality show they did a long time ago. I'm glad you liked it!

How old did you think I was? I'm 49...I guess all the running and eating right is FINALLY starting to pay off. LOL!
