U.D.O.: More Mexican/South American Video Tour Diaries Posted OnlineMay 24, 2011
U.D.O., the German metal band led by former ACCEPT frontman Udo Dirkschneider, has posted the fifth and sixth in a series of video reports from the group's current Mexican and South American tour. You can watch the clips below.
U.D.O. played a headlining show at Rock & Guitarras in Santiago, Chile on May 4, 2011 as part of its South American tour.
The band's setlist was as follows:
01. The Bogeyman
03. Independence Day
04. The Bullet And The Bomb
05. Restless And Wild (ACCEPT cover)
06. Son Of A Bitch (ACCEPT cover)
09. Princess Of The Dawn (ACCEPT cover)
10. Guitar Solo
11. Midnight Mover (ACCEPT cover)
12. Man And Machine
13. Breaker (ACCEPT cover)
14. Animal House
15. Metal Heart (ACCEPT cover)
17. Balls to the Wall (ACCEPT cover)
U.D.O. released its new album, "Rev-Raptor" on May 20 via AFM Records. The effort was made available in the following formats:
* CD (Jewel Case)
* CD (Digipak)
* CD (Japan)
* Vinyl black
* Vinyl green
* Limited Box (more details below)
The digipak contains the two bonus tracks "Time Dilator" and "Heavy Metal W:O:A" plus the videos for "Leatherhead" and the second single, "I Give As Good As I Get".
The Japanese version of "Rev-Raptor" includes the bonus tracks "Stormbreaker" and "Bodyworld".
The green-vinyl edition of "Rev-Raptor" is limited to 200 copies and available exclusively via Nuclear Blast mailorder.
The recordings for "Rev-Raptor" took place between June 2010 and February 2011 at Roxx studios (owned by U.D.O. guitarist and ex-ACCEPT drummer Stefan Kaufmann) in Pulheim, Germany. The CD was mastered by Manfred Melchior at MM Sound Digital studios in Steinhagen, Germany. The album's cover artwork is once again a comic-like motif: but the "Dominator" character is this time "a lot more effectual and colorful," according to a press release.
"Rev-Raptor" was originally scheduled for release in January but was delayed by the back problems experienced by Kaufmann, the same issue that forced him to quit playing drums for ACCEPT back in the day. Stefan recently received medical treatment for this condition and had recovered enough to have played with the band on November 6, 2010 at the Rock Antenne festival at Schwabenhalle in Augsburg.
