Given great incentive by their work together in Belgiumís legendary Heavy Metal band Ostrogoth, axemen Dario Frodo, Stripe and Tom Tee found themselves overwhelmed by massive amounts of inspiration for new material, much of which proved to lie too much outside the boundaries of what they could rightly realize with Ostrogoth. Therefore, they decided to found a brand new formation through which to channel all these new ideas. With the addition of classically trailed batterist Louis Van Der Linden to the fold, the search was open for a powerful vocalist with a wide range and striking stage presence, which they found in seasoned Dutch singer David Marcelis (Lord Volture, Black Knight,...).
With the line-up complete, the band put the finishing touches on their self-titled debut album, which was released October 5th 2018. Touring and gigging in promotion for the new record commenced immediately, and saw the band playing dates across Germany, Spain, the Czech Republic, Holland and Belgium, where Thorium shared the stage with acts such as The Three Tremors, Q5, Witch Cross, and many more.
Influenced by and incorporating elements of all the classic styles of Metal from the past four decades, such as NWOBHM, Power Metal, Progressive Metal, Speed Metal, Bay Area Thrash and of course classic Heavy Metal, Thoriumís members set themselves no boundaries and seek to deliver music that is heavy, melodic, virtuosic, catchy and conceptual.
