The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that German melodic metallers MOB RULES have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2008.
Formed in 1994 by vocalist Klaus Dirks, guitarist Matthias Mineur, bassist Thorsten Plorin and drummer Arved Manott, Mob Rules issued their first demo in 1996 with the addition of second guitarist Oliver Fuhlhage and after a series of well-received gigs, secured a deal with Limb Music for the release of their 1999 debut album â€˜Savage Landâ€™. After an appearance at the prestigious Wacken Open Air festival in 2000 and dates with the Scorpions and Overkill, the band released follow-up album â€˜Temple Of Two Sunsâ€™ which was backed-up by extensive touring. A return to Wacken in 2002 preceded third album â€˜Hollowed Be Thy Nameâ€™ which saw them tour with both Helloween and Rage. â€˜Among The Godsâ€™ emerged in 2004 through SPV before the band took a short break from recording and released a live DVD â€˜Signs Of The Timeâ€™ in 2005. This period also saw the departure of Plorin and Fuhlhage who were replaced by Markus Brinkmann and Sven LÃ¼dke respectively. A new studio album â€˜Ethnolution A.D.â€™ appeared in late 2006, after which the band hit the road with UFO. Numerous gigs and festival appearances later, the band are currently working on their sixth full-length album which is expected just in time for their debut Bloodstock appearance.
