U.D.O. Unveil ‘Metal Machine’ Video

Friday, 3rd May 2013

The German metal band U.D.O led by former ACCEPT frontman Udo Dirkschneider, have released a new video entitled “Metal Machine” which can be seen below. The song comes off U.D.O.’s new album, “Steelhammer”, which will be released on May 24 through AFM Records. The CD produced by Dirkschneider and Fitty Wienhold, will be available as a standard CD, digipak and Japanese version.

Guitarist Igor Gianola recently left U.D.O. and was replaced by Finnish axeman Kasperi Heikkinen. U.D.O. last year announced the addition of guitarist Andrey Smirnov to their ranks. He replaced Stefan Kaufmann, who left the group for health reasons. Stefan will continue to work with U.D.O. behind the scenes and produce other bands at his Roxx studio.

Kaufmann was the drummer for ACCEPT on nine albums but was forced to give up drumming towards the end of the band’s initial run due to health problems. Stefan joined U.D.O. as a guitar player in 1996, following ACCEPT’s second breakup, and has recorded nine albums with them.

“Live In Sofia“, the new DVD+CD and Blu-ray+CD from U.D.O., entered the Music DVD chart in Finland at position #1 and in Germany at #4. “Live In Sofia” contains footage of U.D.O.’s November 16, 2011 concert at Hristo Botev Hall in Sofia, Bulgaria. U.D.O. ‘s latest album, “Rev-Raptor”, was released in May 2011 via AFM Records.
