With their brutal, simple riffs and aggressive, fast tempos, Accept were one of the top metal bands of the early '80s, and a major influence on the development of thrash. Led by the unique vocal stylings of screeching banshee Udo Dirkschneider, the band forged an instantly recognizable sound and was notorious as one of the decade's fiercest live acts.

Look no further than John Fiorillo's Viewing of Japanese Prints
for the definitive online resource on the art. Covering over three centuries of Japanese print making from Ukiyo-e
through Shin Hanga
and Sôsaku Hanga
has detailed histories and critiques of the artists, including such legendary masters as Katsushika Hokusai
. The site also includes a wealth of information on the artform itself, with essays on topics as varied as the deciphering of prints
and the various forms of poetry found on them
, as well as archival notes on print fading
. Have a question for the man himself? Shogun Gallery's discussion board
is one of his favorite haunts, where he helps users with questions ranging from signature identification to the allusions found within a specific print. Given the wealth of information and beauty of the work, this site's a treasure.
