Germany’s metallers MOB RULES have announced today the release of their upcoming new album Beast Reborn on August 24th via SPV/Steamhammer. “Beast Reborn is a great album filled with catchy tunes that will stick with you. Fans of melodic metal should definitely check this one out!” states uber-known sound engineer Jens Bogren who mastered the album.
Energetic, massive, focussed – that’s how MOB RULES appear on their new album. The success of their previous album Tales From Beyond was the impetus being used by the six rockers to bundle their energies and produce this new and very straightforward album. With dense sound, straightforward songs and the familiar big melodies, MOB RULES go directly to the listener’s ears. Rough and fast-paced they move across the roots of metal, to haunting, modern compositions, which makes their sound more fresh and up-to-date than ever.
New band member Sönke Janssen also has a hand in this: Being the new second guitarist he expands and completes MOB RULES’ sound spectrum. Not only within the band things are moving, they also get input from outside: Jens Bogren took over mastering. He works with great artists like KREATOR and AMORPHIS at his Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. Bogren is a real guarantor for a punchy sound. Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann (Orden Ogan) is responsible for most of the choirs and yet again accountable for the mix of the album is Markus Teske.
MOB RULES take full advantage of their potential and show their strength precise and focussed. With Beast Reborn, MOB RULES draw the logical consequence of their progress and at the same time dare to experiment with new things.
Beast Reborn will be released on CD digipak, 2LP gatefold (incl. 1 bonus track), limited boxset (incl. CD, 2LP, towel, hand-signed photo card, 2 track bonus CD, patch, sticker etc.), download and stream
