German melodic power metallers Mob Rules have posted this year-end wrap-up on their official website:

This year is approaching its end - exciting, thrilling, busy and successful but straining and frustrating in some moments. This is to wish you a merry Christmas and to all of yours and you have already got the flowery phrases of a happy New Year from everyone around. So we'd like to feed you with a short outline of Past - Present - Future:

Talking about a knotty year would partly meet the matter.

It was in May 2004, when our fourth album has been launched - "Among The Gods" - and attracted great acceptance with press and all of you. The following up release - show at the Pumpwerk in Wilhelmshaven was goose bumping in some parts to all of us and a special great night - Thanks a lot for that!

Summer was that time, when Oliver quitted as our lead guitar player. He had a tough choice - we all know that - and he tore a hole in both ways: as a great musician and a real friend!

Luckily Sven Lüdge fills his part right now. For he was with Murder One before, we knew he would suit the band not by just being a terrific guitar player but having a tremendous person with us.

The first performances in Emden, Nordenham, Leer and France have been a great experience for us to look forward composing the material for the following studio recording with him.

A shattering blow was the rapid cancellation of these plannings:

Concert - Tour with Europe
Touring South Europe with Saxon
Show with Regicide in Osnabrück

No idea what went wrong. We have done all we could do to enter these stages but had to kick it for impossible terms.

But our fan club machine ploughs up - thanks to Timo, Jens and Neele! With this growing community and your support you energize the band for more coming up projects.

The business is increasing monthly with our label Steamhamer/SPV working hell for leather and our management UTM.

What's up in 2005? The focus is on the "Pumpwerk" DVD, recorded last summer in Wilhemshaven and coming to the final cut right now, with our claim to be perfect in sound and picture. We also set premium material to complete it of higher value. This is a challenge, taking still a few weeks to work on, but the release is planned for the beginning of May 2005.

At the same time we want to have our first tour as a headliner band. The concert artist's agency in Berlin and our management in Hannover still check and organize the dates where likely a few smaller festivals are coming along. We are curious about the tour's schedule!

All up, after a so-so year, being perfectly equipped with members we are proud of having solid and faithful fans and highly motivated starting to write the songs for our fifth album. More than ever we can feel it: The best Mob Rules album is still to come!

Should there be any smashing news to the DVD, any touring dates or other exciting things , you are the first to know on our web pages. That's it for the moment - all the best from Mob Rules!
