ACCEPT VIDEO SKY ROCKETS DURING TO COVID19 OUTBREAK
Accept, like many others didn’t see coming what 2020 had in store for all of us. Movies like Contagion all of a sudden started getting attention it didn’t receive when it was first released. Accept seem to be riding this same wave of popularity. Although the lyrics surrounding the track “Pandemic” don’t necessarily focus on something like the Corona virus, it has been elevated to over 3 million views all the same.
The track originally appears on the album Blood Of The Nations. The album marked the return of the band, with new lead singer Mark Tornillo, who was best known at the time for fronting T.T. Quick.

Here is what the band had to say about the video surpassing 3 million plays on YouTube:
“We all hope that our fans across the world remain safe and healthy wherever they live or work! We all must band together to defeat this nasty virus! You are not alone, the ACCEPT Family will STAND TOGETHER and we shall all continue to help and support each other!
The sad reality today: This is A PANDEMIC – but, when we wrote this song ten years ago, we were pushing the idea that it is THE LOVE FOR HEAVY METAL that is spreading like a disease; this is true for the past, the present and the future. Today we believe that when you are head banging’ to our song … that song is a Heavy Metal DISEASE, one that will make your day brighter and help you through this “other” disease! 😊
Let’s unite virtually in metal, stand together STRONG. Please obey social distancing! #stayhome”
