Singer Eszter Anna Baumann says: “It’s a great honor to be a part of Rock’N’Growl Records. Our album couldn’t be in better hands than Axel’s. I’ve been following his company/label for many years and I know that he’s very professional in managing and promoting his bands. I am sure that our collaboration will help Ann my Guard to reach more fans internationally. This is a huge step for the band and we are really excited about the future.

About Ourania: “I wanted to make a record that fully represents what Ann my Guard is: I really like mixing the ethereal feminine vocals with heavy guitar riffs and dark melodies. I like contrasts. Moreover, I love to use mythical metaphors: while on the debut record, Innocence Descent I used the Moon representing the maturing of a woman, by Ourania I expressed more universal themes. As the lyrics of Asteria say: I just want to elevate you, underneath my starlit sky, I’ll be set free… The aim of rock music for me is to elevate the listeners into another dimensions, not to pull them down. I think that’s what we all need from music nowadays, right?

The album was produced by Gabor Vari, at Black Hole Sound Studio.

Lineup:

Eszter Anna Baumann (vocals, bass)
Krisztián Varga (guitars)
Benjamin Bárkányi (guitars)
