DECEMBER 15 – New Video Launched For Belgian Heavy Metal Band THORIUM

Friday the 14th of December 2018, Belgian Heavy Metal band THORIUM have released their brand new music video for the track ‘Return Of The Clouds’, in promotion of their self-titled debut album (out NOW on Empire Records). 

“Paying homage to the Belgian pilots who flew with the RAF during World War II, I wanted to write a rollercoaster of a song: a track that would attempt to capture the feel of being in a WWII fighter plane and being called out to scramble (which is when a general alert is sounded and all pilots and aircraft are sent up into the airas quickly as possible) — of speeding towards the enemy and engaging in a so-called ‘dogfight’, never certain whether you’d ever see your home again or even make it out alive.

The first verses are all about what these brave pilots must’ve felt when seeing their homeland overrun by enemy forces, and the call of England and its superb airforce, which presented a last opportunity for them to fight back in the manner they were best at. As the song thunders on and rolls into the peaceful mid-section, it takes a moment to reflect on the distant promise of setting foot in their native country again, which, especially on clear days, they must’ve seen all too well from high in the air as they flew toward their assigned targets.
