Accept - Apogee (2021)

The seventh album from this one-man band from Japan.

Accept is the brainchild of Hisao who plays bass, programming, guitars, synths and also does the vocals.

A guest does some drums.

Accept has silently and with not so much promotion released seven albums since I interviewed Hisao eleven years ago. I think I should get some more Accept albums and review them here. In the meantime, here is the review of the new album.

We are somewhere between symphonic prog and neo-prog on this album.

The music is pretty melodic with some strange details too. The music is at times pretty eclectic. 

The (English) vocals is very good throughout this pretty eccentric take on these two genres.

The music is not straight forward and it has some strange details which adds some spice to this album. A lot of spice, in fact.

It is a good album too and I get the feeling that this is a one-man band well worth exploring.
