ACCEPT’s Restless And Wild - October 2nd, 1982

BraveWords asked Wolf Hoffmann recently about “Fast As A Shark” being one of the first speed metal songs.  

"It was just born out of fun and a little bit of shock value,” he says. “We wanted to shock parents and we wanted to have a little bit of shock value in everything we did. Our drummer Stefan Kaufmann he was all into that, at the time. The more extreme the better, and he actually came up with that idea for that double, that song initially, and then we finished writing it together. I contributed the intro and the chorus. But it was all basically, there was no deep meaning, or we didn't think to was going to be anything that special as it later on turned out to be, you know? And we kind of left it alone after that. It wasn't until years later that people told us what a huge influence that song had on their career or on the music scene, in general. Back in those days we didn't really, we weren't aware of it at all. We just released that song, we liked it, it was great, it did what it did, but we didn't think much of it, other than that. We didn't really want to start a whole genre or anything. We didn't want to take it to more extremes. But it's a huge honour to find out later that it influenced so many people. It's amazing, isn't it?"
