Accept

“It started with a sort of Heidi hi ho lo la German folk intro which lasted about four bars before there is a massive sound of the needle scratching through that shit and a barrage of drums, guitars and the unearthly sound of Udo Dirkschneider screaming”.  The Story of Rock and Roll – James Daubeney

Accept will probably always be compared to the Scorpions just because they are German and they play metal.  Accept were far heavier and less commercial, they didn’t get the recognition they deserve in my opinion.  It was the classic Judas Priest line-up, bass, drums, twin lead guitar and a front man who could give it horns.  Their follow up album to Restless and Wild was Balls to the Wall, and it is fantastic.  I heard Restless and Wild when it came out so that set the standard, it was raw and unpolished and very, very special.
