First re-release of the tenth full-length studio album by legendary German Heavy Metal band.
"Death Row" is a dark, primal album that finds Accept mostly abandoning their classic sound for this experiment in sheer aggression. If you thought Udo sounded angry on the last album, he's absolutely furious on some of these songs. This album was produced by drummer Stefan Kaufmann, who actually had to leave towards the end of the sessions due to health problems, and Stefan Schwarzmann then handled drum duties. Stefan Kaufmann was still the official drummer for Accept, but drums on "Bad Habits Die Hard" and "Prejudice" are by Stefan Schwarzmann according to the liner notes. 
While the band may have felt they were breaking new ground here for themselves, it was the same ground, so many other Metal bands had already covered. It seemed that too many great 80s Heavy Metal bands found themselves in the position of copying their contemporaries instead of building upon the unique elements they already possessed. In Accept's case, Wolf Hoffman had greatly toned down his Neoclassical influences in the new riffs he's crafted here. As a result, the songs wound up sounding fairly generic and try to succeed simply by being "heavier than thou". Is the well-intended, but somewhat flat follow-up to the marginally successful Accept comeback release, "Objection Overruled". Accept wisely attempted to make a more consistently heavy recording and practically eliminated the mellower dynamics that limited their previous offering. While opting for a more singularly heavy approach was a good decision, the choice of drummer Stefan Kaufmann to produce the record left things sounding a little weak when compared to "Objection Overruled" (produced by the legendary Dieter Dierks). Perhaps the band wasn't afforded the budget necessary to finish anything more than just a competent recording, but that's what the band, and especially their fans, deserve.
This steely aggression persists through most of the songs and renders the dynamics fairly flat. The last three songs almost sound like they're bonus tracks because they're most in the spirit of the old Accept. These include the ballad "Writing On The Wall" and Wolf's guitar instrumental "Pomp And Circumstance". Although these songs aren't anything spectacular, they provide a little fresh air after a long journey through this dark & narrow tunnel.
Despite a much heavier sound, "Death Row" is a typical Accept album, featuring a variety of Heavy Metal songs. The album reached the top 30 charts in countries like Germany and Sweden and managed to reach the top 50 in Japan.
"Death Row" was pressed on vinyl upon its original release, but only in very limited quantities, making this album one of the most sought after Accept albums on vinyl!
