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.The aim of rock music for me is to elevate the listeners into other dimensions, not to pull them down.

I think that's what we all need from music nowadays, right?" ANN MY GUARD was formed in 2007 by singer-bassist Eszter Anna Baumann-Toth.

Their first EP, "Cinderella's Syndrome" came out in 2010. Its second song, called Gone, was invited to be on an American promotional record (Kill City series).

That was when they got the first positive international reactions. Their popularity in Hungary was helped by the broadcasting of a report within the Hungarian X Factor, in which ANN MY GUARD's lead singer Anna had been invited to introduce the band.

In the summer of 2011 they recorded their second EP: "Doll Metal" with rock producer Zoltan Varga at Supersize Recordings.

Their first official music video "Preparation" came out in August 2012. ANN MY GUARD's first album "Innocence Descent" came out in April 2014 produced by Gabor Vari at Black Hole Sound.

From 2015 they started to work with UK-based indie label Shamanize Records. After additional mixing by Dark Moon Audio in the UK the album was mastered by Pete Maher for Shamanize Records.

ANN MY GUARD were touring almost solidly for two months in Europe promoting the debut album.

2017 sees the release of their second full length "Ourania" in Europe.
