While Northern German melodic metal band MOB RULES are currently busy applying the finishing touches to their boxed anniversary set Timekeeper (release date: 13 October 2014, Germany: 10 October 2014, US/Canada: 28 October 2014), the musicians have revealed initial details about this special package which consists of two CDs, a single and a live DVD. CD 1 has MOB present the 15 most important songs from their previous eight releases, among them classics such as "Black Rain", "Hollowed Be Thy Name", "Astral Hand", "Rain Song" (Live) and "Cannibal Nation".

CD 2 is the fulfillment of the band members' longstanding dream: "We've always wanted to invite guests to the studio who have been important to us and our development and who have become friends," explains drummer Nikolas Fritz, referring to a long list of renowned musicians who have contributed to Timekeeper, among them Udo Dirkschneider (U.D.O.), Bernhard Weiß & Marco Wriedt (both AXXIS), Amanda Somerville & Sascha Paeth (both AVANTASIA), Peavy Wagner (RAGE), Michael Ehré (GAMMA RAY), Herman Frank (ACCEPT), Corvin Bahn (ULI JON ROTH, SAXON), Herbie Langhans (SINBREED, SEVENTH AVENUE), Stefan Lill (VANDEN PLAS), Chitral Somapala (ex-FIREWIND, RED CIRCUIT) and Peter Knorn (VICTORY). These artists can be heard on newly recorded MOB RULES classics, the cover versions "Lights Out" (UFO) and "Run With The Wolf" (RAINBOW) as well as two brand-new songs which MOB RULES composed exclusively for Timekeeper. "This boxed set reflects the band's past, present and future," comments Nikolas Fritz.

Timekeeper is rounded off by a DVD featuring recordings from the 2011 MOB RULES performance at the Prog Power US Festival in Atlanta/USA plus extensive bonus material. Nikolas Fritz: "Our fans kept asking about those film recordings, that's why we have now had the material cut and its sound mixed. A great souvenir, also for ourselves."

Real eye-catchers are the cover artwork and 44-page booklet which are part of the elaborate box, featuring scores of photos from all phases of MOB RULES' 20-year career, a special feature being the fact that each one of the limited boxes has been numbered individually by hand, making this boxed set a very special fan item.
