Touring regularly, Accept released the killer studio album Blind Rage back in 2014 to much praise. Touring some more, in honor of that very album, Accept are back in 2017 with a live rendition, called Restless And Live. Released back on January 13th via Nuclear Blast, the package includes a DVD of their performance at Bang Your Head! Festival in 2015, and also contains two live CD’s with twenty-seven songs taken from their last European tour. In regards to the music, The Restless And Live features all the greatest hits from all eras starting off with Stampede from the latest album and then jumping backwards through time into a couple key songs from 2012’s Stalingrad. There are so many significant and well-crafted songs amidst the live collection that withstand the test of time, and many have become staple anthems such as Pandemic, Metal Heart, and Balls To The Wall to name a few.

Thankfully, Restless And Live is the band at their best. Recorded and filmed at Bang Your Head! in 2015, Accept rise to the occasion with a full-on burst of power. As soon as they launch into the opening joust of Stampede and Stalingrad, you know this is going to be a glorious jamboree. Tornillo eases confidently into his role, dismissing all comparisons to his distinguished predecessor, Udo Dirkschneider. But the real driving force here is the obvious spark between guitarist Wolf Hoffmann and bassist Peter Baltes. These founder members revel in each other’s talent.
The sound on Restless and Live is nearly studio-quality, and walks the line between listening to an album at home, and seeing the band in person.
Accept’s power-packed 27 track double disc live album Restless & Live is the perfect feather in the cap of the band’s incredible career rebirth since the addition of vocalist Mark Tornillo. The tracks are chosen from shows recorded on Accept’s Blind Rage Tour and the consistency of the performances is truly a testament to the band’s veteran status and polished nature. There are good reasons that the band is constantly in demand on the European festival circuit and many of them are highlighted here on Restless & Live. Along with the release of the double disc CD is the DVD which features almost completely different, but equally powerful performances shot during the band’s 2015 performance at the Bang Your Head Festival. With or without the DVD, the Restless & Live release may go down in history as the definitive Accept live album. Highlights are too numerous to list here!
