Accept - Princess Of The Dawn

The ending track of the 1982 "Restless & Wild" album, Princess Of The Dawn is a terrific way to end the album, and only Accept could have turned six minutes of monotonous riffing into a masterpiece.

Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann achieved the haunting mandolin-like effect by recording the guitar at half-speed, then having it played back at normal speed. He describes the sudden ending as "an idea that didn't work so well." (for those who might think the recording is not complete)
