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. But beware: All 4 re-releases are strictly limited to 300 copies ONLY and will be sold out FAST!
Two years after the impressive resonance sToa received on their first album ‘Urthona’, it seemed almost impossible for Olaf and Conny to top the quality of their debut. But with ‘Porta VIII’ they surely succeeded to record a more than worthy follow-up. ‘Porta VIII’ was one of the bestselling Hyperium albums of all times and got overwhelming reviews literally everywhere! This CD is an album with a concept based on the fairy tale "Ariadne et Barbe Bleue" by Maurice Maeterlinck. But Porta VIII is a continuation of the original fairy tale. The album is considered to be true classic, was selling extremely well in all kind of countries worldwide and even entered the Mexican charts! Also Porta VIII was remastered and re-released in 2004, but is sold out since 2006.
