With their third CD, Feral Creation, reactivated Danish deathers Thorium provide yet another dosage of fierce metal. The music is still a blend of Swedish and American death metal, but in many ways it sounds more worked through than before. The Danes have been able to create a versatile and varied effort. The band definitely understands how to open up for the full throttle on the title track "Feral Creation"; and in particular on "Cast From Hell" and "Sigil of Baphomet". It really suits the music when the band turns up the extremity. On the opposite it also adds positively when Thorium gears down a bit and relies on the slower middle parts.

To make it all complete the band adds a bit of a groove and some solos along the way. It doesn't hurt either that the music is quite catchy and easy to digest. The songs are tight played and the five guys are able to keep up the momentum throughout the entire CD. Feral Creation was recorded at Berno Studio. Jacob Hansen later mixed the effort. The result is a meaty and clear production. It fits the music perfect as none of the details seem to vanish. Feral Creation is a dosage of high octane death metal that should appeal to most fans of the genre.
