(8/10) Mr. Reibeisenstimme Udo Dirkschneider is a dinosaur in metal. Being part of the scene since 1976 makes the guy to an icon. He brought metal to Germany with Accept and also with starting his solo career later in time. Udo Dirkschneider stands for authentic German metal.

Since quite some time he embarked with his gang on a tour, performing Accept songs. Under the flag of 'Dirkschneider' the guys are touring through many countries, playing a full set of Accept classics from the Dirkschneider era.

This tour started back in the beginning of 2016 and it was/is meant as the last moment in time listening to Dirkschneider singing Accept songs. I'm not sure if anybody could foresee such a big success, but the fact that the tour takes in the meantime many months, with many concerts added along the way, shows a big interest of fans listening to Udo singing the old classics.

Therefor it was almost a logical consequence that a live album will be released too. Here it is - "Live: Back to the Roots". And it is what the title promises, 24 Accept classic (plus intro and outro), sung by Dirkschneider, interpreted by his band, something that gives the tracks partly a new expression. The whole album is a forceful one that captures the live atmosphere in a excellent way. Udo and the band enjoying every minuteon stage which can be heard in every note played that night in front of an enthusiastic crowd that welcomed every sing-a-long part. 

The cherry on this metal cake is the excellent sound that makes each of the 24 songs to a highlight in itself and pure ear-candy.

This live album, which was recorded in April this year in Memmingen, Germany,  makes a lot of sense since it's an entertaining journey back in time to the roots of metal and it's maybe the last moment listening to Udo Dirkschneider performing these classics in metal. A must have.
