Accept Postpone “Teutonic Terror” Video Release
May 5, 2010
The official online premiere of “Teutonic Terror”, the new video from reformed heavy metal legends ACCEPT, has been postponed to Monday, May 10 (via MySpace). The clip was shot in March with director Dave Blass of Grid41.com and it promises to be the “most metal” ACCEPTvideo ever. Asked about the “story or theme” behind the video, the director said, “We had all of these cool ideas for stories about a post-apocalyptic world, hot girls in ‘Mad Max’ gear and cool visuals and the more we worked it the more we kept coming back to the basics… this is ACCEPT, not MOTLEY CRUE, there are people all over the world that have waited years to see this band again, and every second that we cut away to some story that is really just filler anyway, we are missing what is really important. People want to see Wolf Hoffmann shredding his flying V, they want to see new singer Mark Tornillo singing a new ACCEPT song, and they want to see the band ripping into the new track. So I said, ‘Screw the story, get me some fire, get me some tanks and let’s rock it.'”
