German metal band Accept — you know, "Balls To The Wall" — rocks. It rocked back in the day and it will probably continue to rock going forward due to superb albums like "Blood of the Nations" (2010) and its latest, "Stalingrad." Lead guitarist Wolf Hoffmann, bassist Peter Baltes, and company are old school and put the speed and thrash prefix on the metal label. There's plenty here for fist pumpers and it's all chased down with melodies that make things palatable. Accept has lots of imitators, but only one band has the biggest balls of them all. With Nasty Trast, Jim Crean Band, and Aggressive Betty.
Accept performs Sunday, October 7 | Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. | 7:30 p.m. | $20 | frontgatetickets.com
