sToa is an outstanding neoclassical darkwave project from Germany, whose first two albums were released on legendary HYPERIUM Records, while the later 2 came on Alice In… All 4 albums are highly searched for releases and unavailable for years.

Originally released in 1992 on Hyperium Records, ‘Urthona’ was one of the first albums, that was labeled as a ‘Heavenly Voices’ release – a term ‘invented’ by Hyperium owner Olli Rösch and that was used by countless bands since. ‘Urthona’ was selling more than 14.000 copies worldwide and was a milestone in the young ‘heavenly voices’-movement. sToa 1992 were composer/musician Olaf Parusel and female vocalist Conny Levrow. Both have extensive classical training, which is quite effectively reflected in their music. Conny is an accomplished violinist, but her involvement with Stoa is mostly vocal in nature. Olaf provides the accompani- ment and composes the pieces they perform. A masterpiece of art! The album was remastered and re-released already in 2004 – but is deleted since 2006
