About the chart success guitarist Wolf Hoffman comments: "What a roller coaster ride! From the minute we started Accept in 2010 with Mark Tornillo until today, we are in awe! The fans worldwide have spoken and they've let us know that we matter for them. Never in a lifetime could we have expected the true and deep love we get, wherever we go. To enter the charts – again, with Stalingrad our new release - is a huge gift for us and we are more than grateful and very well aware that we could never have done that without the hottest metal label on the planet: Nuclear Blast! They gave us home and their backing is huge. But not only everybody at Nuclear Blast are doing such a great job: We have a management, a crew, and superb professionals around us who gave us confidence and strength and we are trying to show our appreciation by being the best Accept we can. We give you everything, every night! Greetings for Germany, where we play packed houses... See ya on tour - wherever you are!"
