MVD and Drakkar Entertainment are pleased to announce the home viewing release of “Accept ? Metal Blast From The Past” for US distribution on DVD.
This DVDplus (double sided disc: DVD and Audio CD) captures the spirit of ACCEPT?s early career with previously unreleased numbers, the Japan bonus track ?Rich And Famous? and demo versions of five ?Breaker? cuts. It also contains a video recording from Osaka, a visual document of the group?s first Japanese tour, which proves impressively how enthusiastically the guys from Solingen were celebrated in the Land of the Rising Sun. Until now, this performance was only available on a double live LP, entitled ?Staying a Life?. There is also footage from their 1993 show in Sofia, broadcast by Bulgarian television at the time and documenting the comeback of a band which had split up a few years previously. For all those who want more, there are various interviews, a complete discography, a photo gallery and complete lyrics.

Metal Heart, Breaker, Screaming for a Love-Bite, Up the Limit, Living for Tonite, Princess of the Dawn, Restless and Wild, Son of a Bitch, London Leatherboys, Fast as a Shark, Balls to the Wall, and Outro (Bound to Fail)
