Guitarist Herman Frank has announced his departure from German/American metallers ACCEPT. No further details are currently available.
Herman joined ACCEPT in 1982 shortly before the release of the band’s “Restless And Wild” album and exited the group for the first time after the arrival of 1983’s “Balls To The Wall” LP.
When ACCEPT reunited for festival appearances in 2005, Herman handled second-guitar duties alongside founding axeman Wolf Hoffmann.
Frank was involved in ACCEPT‘s comeback with new singer Mark Tornillo and has appeared on their last three studio albums: 2010’s “Blood of the Nations”, 2012’s “Stalingrad” and 2014’s “Blind Rage”.
Frank is currently involved in a new project called PANZER, also featuring vocalist and bassist Schmier, best known as frontman of DESTRUCTION, and drummer Stefan Schwarzmann (ACCEPT, ex-RUNNING WILD).
PANZER‘s debut album, “Send Them All To Hell”, was released on November 28 via Nuclear Blast.
