ANGTORIA was formed in 2004 by singer Sarah Jezebel Deva (Cradle Of Filth, Therion, Mortiis etc) and composer Chris Rehn as a result of a previous collaboration between the two.
Back in 2001 Chris and Sarah worked together with a mutual vision of creating a completely orchestral movie score project.
Chris and Sarah started talking about forming a band together. A band in the same orchestral movie score atmosphere, but mixed with metal and with intentions of securing a line up to be able to tour.
Interest for the new formed band grew quickly resulting in several top rated reviews, awards and interviews for magazines all over the world. In July 2005 they signed an exclusive management deal with Fortress Music And Artist Development to represent ANGTORIA in their search for a record deal and as a result of their collaboration signed with LISTENABLE records.
In November 2005 ANGTORIA started the recording of their awaited debut album entitled " God Has A Plan For Us All " at Sidelake Studios in sundsvall/Sweden. The album contains 12 epic tracks of orchestral metal, 13 on the limited edition release, and features an impressive guest appearance list such as Aaron Stainthorpe (My Dying Bride), Rikard Andersson (Space Odyssey, Time Requiem, Majestic), Dave Pybus (Cradle Of Filth), Andreas Brobjer (Platitude, Space Odyssey). Martin Häggström (Moahni Moahna, Zool). Initial drum and mix engineer was Daniel Bergstrand (Has worked with In Flames, Soilwork, Strapping Young Lad, Behemoth, Messugah etc).
