Accuser

Genre:

From 1986 to 1996, Accu§er were a mainstay within the national and international metal scenes. Especially albums such as Who Dominates Who (1989) and Repent (1992) are an impressive display of the Siegen, Germany-based group’s technical and compositional abilities.
Musically, Accu§er finds their own niche somewhere between Bay Area Thrash Metal and the German sound of bands such as Kreator or Destruction. Collaborations with Alex Perialas (producer of Testament, Anthrax, etc.) or German Industrial pioneers Die Krupps speak for themselves.
The band played countless tours and concerts, e.g. with Motörhead, Paradise Lost and Overkill. In this way, they earned a great standing and become a reliable force known for their energetic, breathtaking live shows.
With the albums Reflections (1994) and Taken by the Throat (1995), the band changed their musical direction. Their sound became more and more aggressive and focused on groove.
After several line-up changes, the band eventually split up in 1996.
That is, until 2008: Accu§er returned back to the front. Although they were never truly gone, to be exact. Under the name of Scartribe, they have been writing songs all the time and played countless concerts.

By the end of 2008, the band returned to their familiar name and has been firing on all cylinders ever since. They released various albums and worked hard to bring their classic trademark sound back on stage for the fans. Numerous shows on European festival stages and in sweaty clubs garnered them even more interest, and Accu§er didn’t stop from there.
The Forlorn Divide, released in 2016, has to be called a milestone in the band’s history. It was the start of their collaboration with Metal Blade Records, a relationship that still lasts, and that brings the new album, The Mastery, in January 2018.

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
