6/26: NEW ACCEPT VIDEO, BLITZ, NIGHT RANGER, ET BOX OFFICE, MORE.
Thanks to the guys in Accept for letting me premiere their video for “Stampede” from the new album Blind Rage on this site. If you haven’t seen it yet it’s right on the home page now. I’ve been listening to the album for a while and it is truly amazing how this band has been reborn with Mark Tornillo and the quality of the 3 albums that have made with him. Production, playing, vocals, songs, just classic Accept! Wolf Hoffman has to be one of metals most underrated guitarists. Hope you guys enjoy it and look forward to your comments. The band will be on my radio shows when schedules match up closer to the album release and the live date in NYC. There are more live dates TBA on the Fall also.
Hear new Accept as well as new Overkill and an interview with Tesla in my radio show this weekend. All outlets listed under live and on the air.
Ticket giveaways to local NYC area shows (and some times outside NYC) are now done on this site. Go to Live & On The Air tab and click ET Box Office for shows available and to register to enter.

Live SiriusXM show this Monday 6-10P ET on Trunk Nation channel 39. Will represent both sides of my music world with Blitz of Overkill and Night Ranger in studio!
The Eddie Trunk Podcast launches 7/10… More soon.
Accept had fallen off my radar too, until Blood of Nations and the master track ‘Give Em The Ax.” “Stampede” kicks ass in the same vien. Wolf Hoffman is top-flight, always has been. The fat, humbucker sound he gets off his Flying V defines quality heavy rock riffing.
Trivia Eddie: it is a Gibson Flying V, right?
Saw Overkill with Kreator a few months back at the Hawthorne in Portland. Lead singer Bobby Ellsworth talked about his mini-heart attack in a backstage interveiw, then proceeded to blow the place up.
Eddie, what do you think about Steel Panther opening up for Priest on their upcoming tour?
Don’t ask him that
