The following press release was also issued about the album: "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."
