With the video for their latest single, “My Decay,” Danish quintet, Thorium, offer up what would be the perfect death metal contribution to this year’s Shark Week. The track is a bloody shredder with a distinct old-school Florida DM vibe, fully enhanced by the vicious shark-on-man action. The track will be officially launched Friday, February 25 (pre-save here), and provides a glimpse of the nastiness in store on Thorium’s upcoming Danmark full-length—the band’s fifth—set for release on vinyl, CD and digitally on April 29 on Emanzipation Productions (pre-order here).
Together for 25 years, the latest incarnation of Thorium finds two original members—vocalist Michael H. Anderson (MHA) and guitarist Jens Peter Storm (JP)—aided by guitarists Jose Cruz, bassist Jesper and drummer Daniel on Danmark‘s 10 songs (including a cover of fellow Danes Dominus’ “Into the Gods”). All tracking was recorded live in Angioni Studios in the summer of 2021, with MHA’s vocals added later. It was mixed by Jacob Bredahl (ex-HateSphere).
