Mob Rules Tales From Beyond on Limited Edition 2LP
A mere 18 months have passed since Mob Rules celebrated their 20th anniversary with the elaborate best-of boxed set Timekeeper. Now the melodic metal act from Germany's north are set to present their latest studio recording Tales From Beyond. Mob Rules' familiar deeply melodic mix of progressive and power metal is in full force here, again in combination with a highly dynamic production. The album features 11 tracks, among them the title cut which comprises three parts and lead single "My Kingdom Come."
For ten months, Mob Rules ensconced themselves in their own Dwelling Mound studio in Nordenham, where they compiled ideas which on the one hand remain true to the tradition of their previous seven studio albums and on the other present a multitude of surprises and innovations. The result, the appropriately titled Tales From Beyond, is a multi-layered and diverse offering marked by a "new directness" which not only goes down well with Mob Rules' own fans but will also surely win the group many a new metal fan along the way.
