In 1986, the legend of the German heavy metal ACCEPT reached the peak of its popularity. After successful tours in Europe and America and the devastating tour of Japan in support of their latest album, "Russian Roulette" the group returned to their homeland to Germany to write material for his next album. However, . when work on the album was almost completed, . Most members of the group decided, . that the time had come for the final conquest of the American market, . offer frontman vocalist Udo Dirkschneider abandon the classic sound of the group in favor of a more Americanized band's sound,
. Despite the fact that such a change in the image of the group promised more money and worldwide fame, Udo refuses to change his manner of performance and bring their fans and left the band to create his solo project. Besides that, Udo svdba was planned and he needed a vacation. It should be noted that this split is not accompanied by the usual for such a situation a scandal - the musicians remained friends, and in the future in every way to help one another.

Leaving ACCEPT, Udo collects its own composition called UDO. Dirkschneider himself, but explains that the title of his new team does not mean his name, and is abbriviaturoy, which stands for UNITED DIPSTICK ORGANIZATION. Participants UDO. steel: guitarist Mathias DIT (ex "SINNER"), a second guitarist and bassist Peter SZIGETI Frank RITTEL (both from "WARLOCK") and little-known drummer Thomas Frank. In this part of the band recorded their debut album "ANIMAL HOUSE", which was completely written by a group ACCEPT, and originally planned to become another creature quintet. Album immediately drew the attention of both press and old fans ACCEPT and stayed on the 1st place the hit parade magazine "METAL HAMMER" for 5 weeks. The concept album, like many things ACCEPT was permeated with anti-war theme. Video clip from the first single, "They need a war" (They Want War), filmed in Poland, says that during the war, primarily affects children. "This is about children's game - says Udo - about playing with toy gun. That is a game where something really. If the children in our music video shoot at each other, then get up and run on, then in other places there are bullets and the blood, just think about Iraq. There, children will no longer rise when are shot to death. they remain on forever ".

Following the release of the video group goes on tour, changing in its composition and Frank Peter SZIGERTI RITTELA on SYUZEMILA Andy (guitar) and Dieter shirt (bass). "Peter and Frank - good musicians - Udo explains the change in the group - but on a personal basis, we spoke different languages". During the tour, it became clear that UDO. - Is not prsto solo project of ex-vocalist ACCEPT, and a full band, where each participant has a wealth of creative potential.

In late 1988 the band released their second album "MEAN MACHINE" - the first album, written by UDO. a group. As part of the team again is changing - the new group becomes the bassist Thomas SMUSHINSKI, and the place behind the drums is a former member of the cult German quartet RUNNING WILD - Stefan SHVARTSMAN. The second album showed not only the virtuoso fast guitar passages and technically zubodrobilnye drum breaks (which, . clearly to this day is a business card UDO), . but emotional melody and break through to tears lyrical vocals Udo in the ballad "Sweet Little Child", . Mathias DITOM played on the piano,
. Despite this "MEAN MACHINE" can be called the most uncompromising album maestro Udo and Co. As before UDO. go on tour. The same group took part in the festival dedicated to the fifth anniversary of the magazine "Metal Hammer", which played on the same stage with Ozzy Osbourne.

In 1990, out, perhaps the most melodic album in the history of the group "FACELESS WORLD", during the recording of which occurred the next replacement. Andy SYUZEMIL gave his place of second guitarist man named Wally BEM (Wolla BOHM), but this change notice, not all. The fact is that Wally as a twin brother was similar to its predecessor. Another interesting fact is that the third prodesserom creation Teutonic metal was none other than Comrade Udo on ACCEPT - drummer Shtefan Kaufman. In addition to working with his group Udo also helped many young musicians playing the role of a producer, a guest vocalist
. Meanwhile, sales of the album "FACELESS WORLD" gained its momentum and has already been planned large-scale tour, . Suddenly in relation to the hard work (sometimes had to work 15 hours a day) Udo gets a heart attack and doctors advised the singer to give at the time of the concert activities,

After leaving the hospital Udo dissolve their group and decide on the time to leave career as a musician.

Around the same time, ACCEPT fans from all over the world are beginning to attack the letters with a request to reform their favorite team as management ACCEPT, and the participants Legends 80.
