„Cannibal Nation“ is a varied, hook-oriented and energetic record. By building their own studio, a whole lot of new possibilities opened to the band. So the ´Dwelling Mound` studio of guitarist Sven Lüdke became the place for MOB RULES to compose their new material. The result: every song on “Cannibal Nation” appears sophisticated and right on point.
From the prog metal-influenced opening track ´Close My Eyes` to the following ´Lost` with its strong hookline, the first single ´Ice & Fire` (inspired by the story of the abducted Colombian politician Íngrid Betancourt), which features atmospheric orchestral parts by Michael ´Miro` Rodenberg (a.o. Avantasia), to ´Scream For The Sun` (lyrically dealing with the first ascent of Mount Everest) and the album’s final song ´Sunrise`, every tracks was arranged with passion and reason. With ´Tele Box Fool` also a song whose lyrics critisize today’s dull TV/media culture, can be found on the album.
MOB RULES will celebrate the release of “Cannibal Nation” with a Live release party on October 20th in their hometown Wilhelmshaven, Germany. Ticketsare available now.
