Mark Tornillo: ”Acceptin raskas ja synkkä uusi albumi on lähes valmis”

Circus Helsinki

Saksalaisen heavy metal -legenda Acceptin laulaja Mark Tornillo on paljastanut tuoreessa Rock On The Rise -podcastin haastattelussa bändillä olevan yhdeksän kappaletta jo nauhoitettuna tulevaa albumia varten laulujen osalta. Mark on paljastanut vierailleensa Nashvillessa kitaristi Wolf Hoffmannin luona ennen koronavirusaallon leviämistä nauhoittamassa albumin lauluja yhdessä tuottaja Andy Sneapin (Judas Priest) kanssa. Markin mukaan bändi on kirjoittanut albumia varten 15 tai 16 kappaletta joten bändi on päässyt jo yli puolen välin nauhoitusten osalta. Mark kuvaili bändin tulevaa albumia synkäksi ja raskaaksi ja levyn tilanteesta seuraavaa:

”When this [coronavirus pandemic] first started, I had been back and forth to Nashville a few times — or a couple of times, anyway — working with [guitarist] Wolf [Hoffmann]. And when they found out that the JUDAS PRIEST tour was getting canceled also, [longtime ACCEPT producer] Andy [Sneap, who plays guitar for JUDAS PRIEST] had some free time, so Andy went to Nashville. So I went back, and we damn near recorded the whole new album.

We’re nine songs in. They’re not all complete… We’ve written, I would say, somewhere around 15 or 16 songs, so that’s what we actually got to record. There are some rhythm tracks done on some of the other ones, but I didn’t get to sing them. And some things, I think, might actually be complete, which Andy may be mixing at this moment. But there’s talks of us dropping a single this summer and hopefully getting this thing out by Christmas, if possible. We’ll see how that plays out.

There’s gonna be some surprisingly really good shit on this record… They’re my children at this point, so I’m kind of proud of ’em. We’ll see how they turn out. We’ll see what they grow up to be… There’s gonna be some different kind of things on this one — heavy and dark.”
