Abandoned By Bears Releases New Video

Abandoned By Bears revisits the summer of 2016 in new video “For The Sake Of Nothing.” Filmed during the bands "Guardians Of Easycore" tour, this video is the second from latest release "The Years Ahead."

“’For The Sake Of Nothing’ is about how one action can change your perception of a person instantly, and how hard it is to tell that person how much they've changed in your eyes," explains bassist Gustav Eriksson. “Filming this video was a ton of fun. On our tour stop in Chicago, we travelled all around the city and did a lot of incredible stuff. We took in all the history, the different neighborhoods, and at one point we visited a real arcade which none of us had done before. Another treat was trying out the famous Chicago deep dish pizza which definitely was a different experience. The show itself was a nuthouse! A massive thank you to all the fans across the country that came out to see us, this video is for you.”

Abandoned By Bears will return to North America in early 2017, and new dates will be announced soon. More...

Ann My Guard Signs With Rock'N'Growl

Hungarian female-fronted metal band Ann My Guard just signed a record deal with Rock'N'Growl Records. The band's forthcoming second album "Ourania" is due to be released worldwide on CD and digital formats January 13th, 2017.

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."

Axel of Rock'N'Growl adds: "We are proud to welcome Ann My Guard to the Rock'N'Growl family! This band is really dedicated and hard working. That's what it makes to get them on our roster."

About the new album, Eszter had this to say: "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?" More...

Varego comments: “We’re thrilled to have teamed-up with our close friend Ivan, to realize our own tribute to this movies scene. Though our music is mostly known for its space and sci-fi themes, certainly Italian tradition of Giallo films (not speaking also of their soundtracks) is well established within our influences thanks to masters as Fulci, Bava and Argento”.

The song “Phantasma” is taken from Varego's new album "Epoch" released by Argonauta Records and was written and directed by Ivan G. Ferrera. More...
