Background
By 1985, Accept were one of the pre-eminent bands in the HM scene. They probably weren't as commercial as their countrymen The Scorpions at this point, as the Scorps hit pay-dirt with 'Love At First Sting' the year before. 'Kaizoku-Ban' was recorded during September 1985 in Nagoya, Japan. It's technically a Mini-LP, with four tracks from 'Metal Heart' (released in March 1985) and two tracks from 'Balls To The Wall' released in 1983.


The Songs
Much of that 'Metal Heart' album sounded a little bit neutered, which the band admitted to years later. However, in a live context the songs had a bit more punch, as you can hear on the track 'Metal Heart' and the pumping 'Screaming For A Love Bite', though Udo sounds like the German version of AC/DC's Bryan Johnson. 'Up To The Limit' also sounds excellent, those bass lines from Peter Baltes keeping the whole thing together. The next two tracks 'Head Over Heels' and 'Love Child' are both from 'Balls To The Wall', and exhibit much of the darker vibe from that album. The last song is the fourth track from 'Metal Heart', called 'Living For Tonight' which sounded a lot brighter than than the previous two tracks.


In Summary
Certainly you can hear the difference between the material from the two albums. 'Screaming For A Love Bite' sounds like AOR when compared to 'Head Over Heels'. Though a brief affair, it would've been good to be a fly on the wall watching gigs like this back in the day. Accept would return to a heavier sound for 1986's 'Russian Roulette', wanting to put paid to any commercial notions evidenced from the previous year.
