German Heavy Metal Giants ACCEPT release thrilling 3rd new single “Frankenstein”

  Van Muylem    25 april 2024

ACCEPT is gearing up for the release of their new full-length, Humanoid, out this Friday, April 26, 2024, by unleashing the third single “Frankenstein”! The track is an electrifying take on the classic Frankenstein story, featuring a chanting chorus and epic riffs in trademark ACCEPT style, and it comes with an exciting lyric video.

Even after over 40 years, ACCEPT remains one of the leading forces in the worldwide heavy metal scene, performing once again at the most important rock and metal festivals in summer 2024, including legendary Wacken Open Air and Hellfest.

The band will begin their South American headline tour next week! This autumn, European fans will be treated to more than 20 ACCEPT shows across the continent, with Phil Campbell and The Bastard Sons and Sister Sin as special guests. Watch the video for “Frankenstein” below, and pre-order your copy of Humanoid now.

ACCEPT on “Frankenstein”:      
"The story of Frankenstein is old and yet still relevant. The monster is created without being asked. Frankenstein is a human being and yet he is hated and feared by everyone."

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.

Humanoid is a ferociously electrifying, dynamic and subtly nuanced platter with tongue in cheek humor, as heard in biblical references on “The Reckoning” – an ode to concert audiences – a thrilling new spin on the “Frankenstein” story and “Straight Up Jack” – a track that surely would have been a Bon Scott approved drinking song.           

The opening track “Diving into Sin” gives listeners a hair-raising energetic jolt with its Middle Eastern influenced intro, and an almost aggressive, screaming vocal from Tornillo setting the rest of the album up for a most bountiful feast. "Unbreakable" is as much about the band as it is the bond between ACCEPT and their fans, in the concert arena – an easy going “Hey, let’s do this” kind of rock song. "Mind Games", on the other hand, has a vintage feel, circa “Metal Heart”. "No One Gets Out Alive" seems tailor made for live shows. It says that regardless of life's circumstances, rich, famous, or not, death is the great equalizer. Upbeat and aggressive with guitar interplay, "Southside Of Hell" ends the disc with a wonderful bit of wordplay, courtesy of Tornillo.           
Humanoid is an album that targets the head, heart, gut and... balls! Listen for yourself!
