After onlyreleasing two demos, they got the attention of the legendary visual kei figure Mana (who formed the well known visual kei bands Malice Mizer &Moi dix Mois), and the duo were quickly signed to Mana's label "Midi:Nette" in 2002. Schwarz Stein then released two albums, both of whichsold very well in the visual kei underground scene.However, in 2004, Kaya and Hora decided to end the "Schwarz Stein" project, due todifferences between the two members. Since then, Kaya has made a humongous name for himself as a solo electronic visual kei artist, whileHora continues to produce various electronic projects. The duo have reunited twice: once in 2006 for a special limited edition reunion CD, andonce more in 2011, for their 10th anniversary, which was highly publicized.
