Sarah Jezebel Deva has checked in with the following announcement about carrying on the Angtoria project under a different name:

"The music will continue in the same vein as 'God Has A Plan For Us All,' blending the world of epic orchestral music with metal, HOWEVER!, we sadly have to change the name due to reasons beyond our control.

"Writing for the new album will start in January and of course, we will update you with the new name & our progress. I hope this makes many of you happy & sorry for the early post, bit unfair to make you wait."

Cradle Of Filth, Angtoria Vocalist Interview

Sarah Jezebel Deva, vocalist with Cradle Of Filth, Angtoria, Therion and Mortiis can be seen being interviewed on YouTube.

In the interview conducted by DJ TRoLL, Deva talks about the new Angtoria single ‘God Has A Plan For Us All’. The video of the song can be seen at this location and also features an appearance from the wife of Dani Filth – frontman of her other band Cradle Of Filth.

Concerning the single she commented, ‘The song covers two subjects but they are both linked. Written about a man who preaches god's word yet finds it acceptable to sexually abuse children. Also this song describes the pitiful cliche used by many religious people who can't offer any other explanation as to why people suffer in their life. Rape, murder, poverty, whatever it may be, the only excuse that can be offered is: "God Has A Plan For Us All!"

Angtoria’s new self-titled album is out now on Listenable Records.

Angtoria To Shoot Their First Video

Angtoria will soon start filming their first music video as a part of the worldwide promotion for their album due to be released on Listenable Records April 27th. The video will be filmed during 3 days at two different locations, and director of the video is an upcoming and very talented Swedish director who has previously won awards for his work, Måns Berthas. On April 19th Sarah Jezebel, Dave Pybus (ex- Cradle Of Filth) and Toni Davey (Dani's wife and album cover model), will fly to Sweden to join Chris and Tommy and a yet to be revealed drummer to shoot the video for the title track "God Has A Plan For Us All".

"The song is based around child abuse by a religious person, which in turn leads the girl to madness because of years of mental torture through the offender getting away with what he has done to her. Putting images to lyrics like these is quite difficult without getting banned by every tv station, but we will sure try to portray the lyrics in images as much as possible. Chris´s young daughter Saga will play the child and Toni will obviously play the girl as older. This is to show the deterioration from start to finish of the girls life."
