So what's the moral of the story? An album worth listening to, worth seeing and feeling -- allow yourself to be enchanted.....
The Viennese rock band ROOGA was founded in early 2006 and consists of singer Kati, guitarist Alex, Victor on Bass and drummer Klaus. Before the release of their first long player, with nothing but a demo out, the 4-piece managed to win both the Local Heroes band contest in 2006 with bands from all over Austria participating and then in 2007 the Europe-wide International Live Award. In 2008 they finally released the debut record "Leaving the Scene" in Austria, Germany and Switzerland through Alive Records (Germany). The following months the band played numerous gigs at home and abroad, in small clubs as well as on huge festival stages supporting bands like Living Colour, Soulfly, Billy Sheehan, Dog Eat Dog, T.M. Stevens and others which brought the bands not only new fans, but also, having played more than 150 live gigs in the meantime, helped them to establish a certain status in the Austrian music scene. Since 2009 the band has been supported by trendy liquor manufacturer Jägermeister, making the band from now on an official "Jägerband Austria". It took more than a year to work on new songs, establish new ideas and finally in October 2010 the new record "Behind the Mirror" is presented, demonstrating the development of the band on all levels.
