Back in 1985, Germany's Accept was already well known amongst head bangers world wide. Their fifth studio release in 1983 "Balls To The Wall" had become something of a calling card, complete with gold certification in the United States. Despite the popularity of "Balls To The Wall", it was their next full length and single "Metal Heart" that would captivate me as a young fan. It was the first Accept LP to be recorded digitally along side Scorpians' own Dieter Dierks, and the last record made while the band still got along. The "Metal Heart" video was probably best known for borrowing 2 well known classical themes; Tchaikovsky's Slavonic March, and and Beethoven's Für Elise. I've still never heard Beethoven sound this shredtastic since Metal Heart's release.
