During the next few years DeCastro left the band, he was replaced by guitarist Christian McAlhaney; Pizzuto also left, Nick Radovanovic stepped in to fill his shoes and then the line-up was expanded to include bassist Ryan Zwiefelhofer.
The band worked on their first demo-disc which was repackaged, with two additional live tracks and re-issued by Militia Group label as "Black Lines To Battlefields" in May of 2003.
Two years later, in April 2005, Acceptance dropped its debut full-length album, "Phantoms", led by the single "Different".
