I remember hearing this getting played here and there. James was a mess in 85' and my ears were always wanting to be further north up the coast. Untill I scored a cassette copy at a thrift store for like .45 in the late 90's or so surprised Listening to the whole album front to back had never taken place. I toss the tape in the player on occasion....lots of crunch....lots of melody.....great for jammin to while tinkerin on things.

So..............if ya have a garage/shop and need to do a lil wrenchin or scratch something off that "never ending" honey-do list ? Put this on and enjoy.

This just sounds like Accept to me. Udo's unique vocals, combined with killer songs, become a winning combination. Most die hard fans feel this was a more commercial record. But when I grew up, and at age 12 listened to this record, these labels weren't in my vocabulary. I just knew what I liked and what I didn't like. And no one can deny that this album has it's share of classics. "Screaming For A Love Bite" is the first song I think about if someone mentions the name Accept. I got the remastered version, with 2 more live tracks featured.

Killer tracks: Screaming For A Love Bite, Midnight Mover, Metal Heart, Too High To Get It Right

Never have owned a copy of Metal Heart (though I did hear it alot at friend's houses).

I got a free promotional 45 single with Screaming For A Love Bite (don't remember the b-side) from my local record store and though I enjoyed it, I didn't end up buying the album.

By the time this was released I had started listening to Slayer, Metallica, Venom and Motorhead and straight-ahead metal wasn't really what I was craving. This was the last Accept album I heard.

KAIZOKU-BAN (1985) (Live in Japan)


1. METAL HEART
2. SCREAMING FOR A LOVE BITE
3. UP TO THE LIMIT
4. HEAD OVER HEELS
5. LOVE CHILD
6. LIVING FOR TONIGHT


Accept's first live offering. Too bad it is an EP. Nothing much to say about it, except Accept sounded just as great live as they did on record. A true testament to a band's greatness. I have been looking for this EP on CD forever to no avail. Maybe one day I'll be lucky enough to stumble upon it.

======================================================================================









RUSSIAN ROULETTE (1986)


1. T.V. War
2. Monsterman
3. Russian Roulette
4. It’s Hard To Find A Way
5. Aiming High
6. Heaven Is Hell
7. Another Second To Be
8. Walking In The Shadow
9. Man Enough To Cry
10. Stand Tight

I know I'm in the minority here, but Russian Roulette is one of my favorite Accept albums. From what I know UDO wasn't so keen on the more commercial direction the band was taking on "Metal Heart" so he wanted to make another pure heavy metal album. In my opinion, they definitely accomplished that task. Almost every song on this album kicks ass. "TV War", Monster Man", "Aiming High", "Heaven Is Hell"...all superb tracks, IMO. Of course, it would be an Accept album without a fault. "It's Hard To Find A Way" just doesn't stand up to the remainder of the album.

Although I love this album, I have to admit they were beginning to sound a bit tired at this point. They had been busting their behinds touring the world, and not reaping the kind of success that other bands of the day were getting. It's a shame, because this lineup of Accept was one of the best bands from the 80's.

If you didn't like "Russian Roulette" back in the day, give it another shot. It's the textbook definition of a "grower". This album took a LONG time to appeal to me on the level it now does, but I can honestly say it's a favorite of mine.

I bought Kaizoku-Ban on cassette back in the day but it's been ages since I last played it.

I'm with Spec on Russian Roulette - it's underrated as hell. I didn't pick it up till the late 90s and when I first played it I sez to myself "Why the hell did I wait so long to get this?"

Russian Roulette was a return to form for Accept, leaving behind the commercial sound of Metal Heart. Good album!

Never heard the live EP

Balls To The Wall was my first (and for a long time only) Accept album. Loved the title track,which was getting plenty of airplay back then (the good old days!) and after seeing them open for KISS on their Lick It Up tour,I went out and bought the cassette. Blown away by it.


Metal Heart is a decent enough follow up. I didn't mind the tracks that I heard off it but for whatever reason I never ran out and got it until very recent when I found a used cd at the local shop. Pretty good tunes on it but not essential.

I have yet to hear Russian Roulette except for a song or 2 so I can't really comment on it.

This live album (or EP?) was originally only released in Japan back in 1985. The original release had a different title ('Kaizuko-Ban') and artwork. My version is a German reissue. As a live recording, this CD is excellent. The sound is good, the band is tight. The only thing missing is MORE SONGS! Just look at the set-list; what Accept fan wouldn't love this?

Russian Roulette was the first Accept album I can remember listening to. I think I heard other songs from the band prior to listening to 'Russian Roulette', but this is the first complete album. And of course I think it rocks. Again people tell me that this is too commercial, but no one can tell me that songs like "Monsterman" and "Another Second To Be" aren't just great! After this record Udo quit, and I lost interest in the band, until the collector in me wanted to own all of their albums. This album is as much a part of my upbringing as breathing!

I've secured a remastered version, with 2 more live bonus-tracks (actually, if you have all 3 remastered versions you also have all the live-tracks from 'Kaizuko-Ban' on CD).

Killer tracks: Monsterman, Another Second To Be, Man Enough To Cry, Aiming High

I saw this earlier this year while working in the Bozeman, Mt area (college town) at a Hasting's. I had it in my hand but had to take a leak. After doing that and a short detour at the coffe slinger, my return trip to used section was very grievous for me. It was GONE

As far as "Russian Roulette" goes.....gonna have to put some ears to it

I had the live EP for years on vinyl and wish I still had the damn thing. A short EP which makes you wish for a full length album.

'Russian Roulette' was not too bad, bought it as a new release many many moons ago.

I liked the album but not as much as the previous albums.

'Heaven Is Hell' is cool track where Udo does his best Peter Lorre impression.

Roulette I listen to the mood when in the mood for some Accept. Like it better than "Metal Heart", songs like "Another Second To Be", "Aiming High" and "T.V. War" I'll never grow tired of.

U.D.O. - "Animal House" (1987)


1. Animal House
2. Go Back To Hell
3. They Want War
4. Black Widow
5. In The Darkness
6. Lay Down The Law
7. We Want It Loud
8. Hot Tonight
9. Warrior
10. Coming Home
11. Run For Cover

After the moderate success of “Russian Roulette”, Accept was "Aiming High" for the next level in their career. The bands management was pressuring the band to become more commercial to become a larger act in the USA. Udo Dirkschneider wasn’t interested in changing his sound to have a larger following, so he departed Accept on amicable terms and began his solo career by starting a band named after himself, U.D.O.

U.D.O.’s first album “Animal House” was released in 1987. The album sounds very much like it should have been the next step of Accept’s career, as the writing team remained the same from the Accept years. The first U.D.O. band consisted of Peter Szigeti (guitars), Frank Rittel from Warlock on (bass), Mathias Dieth from Sinner and Gravestone(guitars) and Thomas Franke (drums).

“Animal House” is exactly what you would expect from Udo. Straight-ahead metal with no compromises. Tracks such as the title track and “Go Back To Hell” start the record off with a bang. Other than the balladesque “They Want War”, the album is over 40 minutes of in-your-face metal that would make any metal fan proud.

…and U.D.O. were just getting started….

I still have this album on vinyl and need to replace it with a CD version one of these days. Its actually what one would except from a Udo solo disc, kick ass straight ahead metal, nothing fancy just a swift kick to the bollocks.

If I remember correctly, this would have been the next Accept release. But, the record company wanted a commercial hit album. Udo left and took the songs with him.

Killer from start to finish. It combines the melody and aggression making a perfect mix of German metal. One of the better Accept and U.D.O albums and possibly the best introduction to both bands. And Mathias Dieth gives additional zillion points for the album's coolness. This man is a beast.

Fresh out of Accept, Udo Dirkschneider solo debuts with a heavy metal platter that doesn't stand back from anything the man ever released with his "mother band". Consider the commercial approach of 'Russian Roulette' and even more so, 'Eat The Heat', and then listen to 'Animal House'. There is no doubt in my mind that Udo wanted to continue playing real heavy metal, he left an already successful band to do so. (And for the record, he has continued to do so ever since!) Fact is, this album has everything any Accept album ever had, and maybe even more so! It's actually quite the travesty that people are still yelling "reunion" when Udo have always continued to carry the metal torch higher! 'Animal House' shows a hungry band that is giving us its all. This is blistering, no holds barred, German heavy metal. You get speed, attitude, hunger, guitar-solos and duels, riffs, machinegun drumming, thundering bass, raspy vocals and sing-along anthems! What more does a metalhead need?

The liner notes states that the songs are written by Accept and Deaffy, indicating that this was supposed to be recorded as the next Accept album (lyrics collaborator "Deaffy" was/is long time Accept manager Gaby Hauke, aka Mrs. Wolf Hoffmann).

Killer tracks: Every single track is heavy metal monsters, but favorites include "We Want It Loud" and "They Want War".

Gonna have to hunt this down.....I never payed much attention to any UDO solo stuff. Doro made a mistake with the decision to dump the version of Warlock (Triumph & Agony) and go solo (IMHDO) Seems UDO was smart enough to pick up a few of em at least.

I found a copy of "Russian Roulette" in my cassette tapes and gave it a listen. If "Metal Heart" is more commercial than this, well it must be very commercial. There were catchy songs on it. The most interesting thing as far as music goes was the breakdown at the lead section of "Another Second To Be". Think I dug the second side more than the first. Anyways, glad to discover I owned a copy.

Animal House is a terrific release ! What a spectacular solo debut (or next Accept release,however you look at it). I don't think there's really a weak tune on it but the first 4 tracks are the cream of the crop.

U.D.O. - MEAN MACHINE (1988)


Don't Look Back
Break The Rules
We're History
Painted Love
Mean Machine
Dirty Boys
Streets On Fire
Lost Passion
Sweet Little Child
Catch My Fall
Still In Love With You



The year is 1988, Accept are still spinning their wheels somewhere and Udo is on his second solo album in as many years. “Mean Machine” is another great slab of Teutonic ear-splitting metal in the vein that made the leader famous.

I really can’t say much about this album other than I think it’s a bit better than its predecessor. Some say this is the real "first" UDO solo release because of the Accept songwriting inclusion on previous album. Eh, whatever. The only members remaining from the “Animal House” album are Mattias Dieth and Udo himself. Accept drummer Stefan Schwarzmann also rejoined Udo on this album. My favorite songs are “Streets On Fire”, "Lost Passion" and “Break The Rules”, all sporting the classic Accept sound.

This is the second UDO and last UDO album I currently own. Udo and his fellow towel swatters are not trying to write the book of metal or trying to write some concept album involving dancing midgets, Lou Reed or political intrigue, just good old fashion romper stomper kick ass heavy metal

Enjoying reading the thread, even though I've never owned a single UDO album and the last Accept album I heard all the way through was Metal Heart.

lol!
