METAL HEART (BACK ON BLACK)
FANTASTIC 180 GRAM VINYL REISSUE OF ACCEPTS SIXTH ALBUM. Metal Heart is a 1985 release by German heavy metal band Accept.
Although the group had recorded before at Dierks-Studios, this was the first album produced by Dieter Dierks himself.
This album was a cautious attempt to crack the lucrative American market with more accessible song-craft and emphasis on hooks and melodies.
Although critically panned at the time, today Metal Heart is often considered by fans as one of the band's best records.
It contains several of their classic songs such as "Metal Heart" and "Living for Tonite".
The band also makes a detour into jazz territory with the unusual song "Teach Us to Survive".
