After conquering the rock world with their own teutonic brand of heavy metal in the 1980s with “Balls To The Wall” (1983) and “Metal Heart” (1985), Accept parted ways with original singer and frontman Udo Dirkschneider following the release of 1986’s “Russian Roulette”. Although a sound and commercially propulsed effort, 1989’s “Eat The Heat” featuring David Reece on vocals was not what Accept’s fans had come to expect, whilst their former singer followed a more metal direction with his eponymously named U.D.O. After the release of “Staying A Life”, a 1985 live archive recording featuring their former singer, a reunion was inevitable.
Scaled down to Udo Dirkschneider on vocals, Wolf Hoffmann on guitar, Peter Baltes on bass guitar and Stefan Kaufmann on drums, 1993’s “Objection Overruled” is certainly a return to form for these German metal legends.
Featuring 11 tracks, it includes the singles ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Like You’, ‘All or Nothing’ and the self-explanatory ‘Slaves To Metal’, written and produced by the band in conjunction with long term collaborator Deaffy.
With expanded artwork, and liner notes by Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with the band, “Objection Overruled” is a worthy addition to Accept’s HNE catalogue. Also available are “Balls To The Wall” (HNECD018D), “Metal Heart” (HNECD022), “Russian Roulette” (HNECD029) and ‘Eat The Heat” (HNECD030), all of which are available with bonus content.
As various versions of Accept had been only sporadically recording mostly subpar material throughout the late '80s and early '90s, 1993's Objection Overruled -- featuring an essential lineup and a sound quite reminiscent of the group's most popular releases -- is generally considered a strong comeback effort. Udo Dirkschneider's return to the studio with essential members Wolf Hoffmann (guitars), Peter Baltes (bass), and drummer Stefan Kaufmann was indeed cause for excitement among the band's worldwide audience, as it had been seven years since a lineup of this kind of legitimacy had produced a new disc. From the cover art to an almost identical sound and musical structure (most apparent in the opening guitar and drum strains of "I Don't Wanna Be Like You"), some not-so-subtle echoes of Balls to the Wall permeate Objection Overruled. Highlights include all of the record's faster material. Songs like the title track and "Sick, Dirty and Mean" seem to suit Dirkschneider's beyond-human vocals and Hoffmann's equally blistering guitar tone much better than the mid-tempo and balladic numbers. Far from being a total success, Objection Overruled should interest longtime fans of Accept, but neophytes are highly encouraged to seek out much earlier recordings, specifically the four discs released between 1980 and 1984. ~ Vincent Jeffries
