The Northern German Melodic Metal force Mob Rules signed a contract with AFM in late July. The new, sixth album "Radical Peace" will be released in November, prior to this the single "Astral Hand" will be unleashed in October.

"We are happy that we signed with the label of our first choice", states the band. "The well-known professional work of the company and their high-class artist-roster go well with us and our musical direction."

AFM are happy with the signing, too: "With Mob Rules we welcome one of the best and most consistent German Melodic/Power Metal bands. We are convinced that we can support the band on their further way up. Furthermore we can announce one of the Metal highlight of 2009 in "Radical Peace", the band´s heaviest and most diverse album so far. Expect some spectacular surprises!"

Noteworthy for this appraisal is the twenty-minute epic "The Oswald File", which deals with the assassination of John F. Kennedy and brings up the question whether the suspected (and later killed) Harvey Lee Oswald really was the one who shot Kennedy. With this song Mob Rules continue the concept of important political events in world's history that they started on the previous album "Ethnolution A.D.".

This autumn Mob Rules will be present on stage some more times, amongst others at the Wacken Rocks Seaside in Aurich, Germany (August 28th), as headliner of the "Börsencrash Festival" in Wuppertal, Germany (October 16th) and at the big album release concert in the band´s hometown Wilhelmshaven on November 27th, 2009.

Hope it is better than the last album, that was not as good as Among The Gods, which was their strongest release so far.

The twenty minute song sounds interesting though, I wonder what their conclusion will be, did he do it? Or was it the government.

So many of the good power metal bands are signing with different labels after SPV went south, hope we do not lose any with the weak economy.

Somehow whenever I see this band name I think it is a Black Sabbath Dio-era cover band
