New Album Release

ANN – Chapter 3: Anne Frank

CHAPTER 3: ANNE FRANK, fall 2019!!

This year it is exactly 75 years ago that the Sicherheitspolizei raided the secret annex where Anne Frank and her family were in hiding. They were taken to Westerbork and then put on a transport to Auschwitz. Otto Frank -Anne’s father- was the only one of them to survive the concentration camps.


We will be dedicating our third chapter of our metal trilogy “ANN” to Anne Frank. To her memory but also to celebrate 75 years of freedom in Europe since WW2.


‘Chapter 3: Anne Frank’ will be released in fall 2019.
