THOR's latest album, "Into the Noise" was released on January 9, 2008 via Sudden Death Records in association with Fathom Records. "'Into the Noise' is basically a concept album where the band goes on a journey to the center of the mind, of noise," said Thor. "They come across all these alternate characters and creatures like The Sound King. It's a quest. Like in the song 'Back For More', it's about coming back to rise up again and do battle again. Sometimes you have to retreat when you get overwhelmed or defeated, but then you regain your strength and go back in. So we're heading back 'Into the Noise.'"
