This summer two of my old time favorite metal bands release new records. For the first time in 14 years (!), the German band Accept will release new material with a new (American) singer: Mark Tornillo. Their new single Teutonic Terror from the album Blood of the Nations refers to the Teutons, a Germanic tribe during that frequently was in conflict with the Roman Republic.
Iron Maiden releases their first album in only 4 years. The debut single from The Final Frontier is called El Dorado, the legendary lost city of gold that the conquistadors believed existed somewhere in South America. The legend was based on a real Muisca chief who covered himself with gold dust and dived into lake Guatavita near Bogota in Colombia as part of his initiation rite.
