It’s a proud moment when legends get their due.  Following the career-defining return of Germany’s heavy metal heroes ACCEPT in 2010 with over 130 sweat-drenched, worldwide shows to their credit in less than one year, the band have just been nominated in the “EAGLE ROCK COMEBACK OF THE YEAR” category for a Revolver Golden Gods Award.

New and longtime ACCEPT fans are encouraged to vote for the band online here.  Voting at RevolverMag.com ends April 1st.  Everyone who votes will be given a chance to enter a contest to win roundtrip airfare to Los Angeles plus hotel, V.I.P. tickets to the Revolver Golden Gods ceremony presented by Epiphone on Wednesday, April 20th at Club Nokia in Downtown Los Angeles, a Jeff Waters signature Annihilation Flying V guitar, a tattoo session, a Blu-ray player, and much more!

The event will be televised on VH1 Classic on May 28th, 2011.
