Angtoria is a heavy metal band that was originally conceived as a purely orchestral project by Swedish multi-instrumentalist and composer Chris Rehn and English vocalist Sarah Jezebel Deva (aka Sarah Jane Ferridge) and whose extensive résumé already included backup singing with major black metal bands like Cradle of Filth, Mortiis, and Therion. Beginning in late 2001, the pair started composing material and already had a well-received demo in hand by the following year; adding second guitarist (and sibling) Tommy Rehn shortly thereafter, their musical direction clearly shifted toward heavy metal with strong symphonic components. By 2005, the trio felt they were ready to record, so after inking a deal with the Listenable label, they called upon friends and colleagues like bassist Dave Pybus (Cradle of Filth, ex-Anathema) and drummer John Henriksson (My Own Grave) to help flesh out Angtoria's debut album, God Has a Plan for Us All, released in 2006. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
