4. Accept – Blood Of The Nations (2010)
When Udo Dirkschneider said no to doing anything more than a few reunion shows in 2005, it seemed that Accept were once again dead. So when the German metal legends announced that they were reforming with TT Quick singer Mark Tornillo in 2009, many had reason to be skeptical. Yet in 2010, Accept surprised many with their first album in 14 years Blood Of The Nations. Anyone who feared that Tornillo couldn’t hold his own or that Accept lost any edge after years of inactivity were quickly proven wrong after one listen to the first single “Teutonic Terror.” Blood Of The Nations’ top 200 success gave Accept new life, while their latest release Stalingrad has gone on to even greater success on the charts.
