Thorium to release self-titled debut album on October 5th 2018

Empire Records is proud to announce the self-titled debut album of Thorium!

Given great incentive by their work together in Belgium’s legendary Heavy Metal band Ostrogoth, axemen Dario Frodo, Kurk “Stripe” Lawless 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.
