Dirkschneider – Live Back To The Roots


Udo Dirkschneider. The pit bull of heavy metal is back for the attack! He’s screaming and growling the old classic Accept songs for 130’ in a double live CD for the last time in his career. Many classic old school heavy metal songs are included in this live album with which nurtured generations of metal fans depicted with great precision by a relatively new band that accompanies him, which involved his son, Sven, on drums. In his recent concert in Athens in March Udo’s fans banged their heads with classic Accept hymns such as “Living For Tonight”, “Princess Of The Dawn”, “Metal Heart” and some well hidden diamonds that are most unlikely to be played Accept in their shows like “Flash Rockin ‘Man” and “Wrong Is Right”.

Accept’s comeback in 2009 was fantastic and also the three albums that followed. Mark Tornillo does a great job, but I still think that something’s missing… I wonder if now is the right time, as the years go passing by, to think about a reunion with the original Accept members plus Jorg Fischer for the joy and delight of old and new school heavy metal fans?
