>> Vows Of Valhalla!! THOR to wed fans in Edmonton, Canada!

------ For Immediate Release - from the management team at ThorToen Records ------

Thor has done it again.
Multi-dimensional entertainer, entrepreneur and Renaissance man,
Jon-Mikl Thor now to wed two fans from Edmonton, Canada!
That's right - THOR will seal the marriage vows between
John Hartman and Jessie Wagner, who will wed May 18th in Edmonton, Alberta.

He is the first rocker in Canada to produce a concept video, one of the first to experiment with
editing movies digitally, the only rock star to win both Mr. USA and Mr. Canada,
the world's first Muscle and Music entertainer, certainly the first rock performer to bend steel bars
for 20+ years....and now will be one of the first rock stars to perform a wedding ceremony!

The wedding will be far from typical, complete with spectacular lasers and pyrotechnics.
THOR will be clad in full Viking attire for this fantastic and beautiful marriage.
In addition to presiding over the nuptial vows, THOR will perform "Fubar Is A Super Rocker",
(from last spring’s Canadian indie movie hit, FUBAR!) with the wedding band.

Thor will arrive in Edmonton on Friday May 16th to rehearse and to meet with press,
music industry executives, selected music retailers, and appearances on radio and TV.

The reception will be on May 17th with the wedding on May 18th.

>> THOR teams up with Canadian Punk Legends, DOA, for Are U Ready !

Available NOW! - Order Direct from THORCENTRAL

Legendary punk pioneers D.O.A. and legendary metal artist THOR have teamed up to release a 12 song CD entitled Are U Ready. The songs are all about sports, power, glory and mayhem. Leading off this dynamic union of roaring rock is the D.O.A. track Are U Ready. The powerhouse Vancouver Canucks have been playing the tune at home games to rev up the crowd and the team, and this powerful CD has been released in time for the drive to the Stanley Cup.

Are U Ready has also been adopted as the theme song in the restoration of the memory of the Vancouver Millionaires (Stanley Cup Champions 1915).

This CD is a co-release on Canada’s punk godfather Joey Shithead Keithley’s Sudden Death Records and THOR’s record label ThorToen. It is distributed by Vancouver’s Scratch Records.

On this CD THOR crushes everything in his path. He has only gotten stronger with the passage of time; this is evidenced by power anthems like Call of the Triumphant, Gladiator Stomp and The Challenge. THORS music is bruising, infectious and guaranteed to get U Ready. For diehard THOR fans: You'll be glad to know that most THOR songs on this release are newly recorded versions that have been unreleased until now!

D.O.A. is well known for its place in mixing rock and hockey. D.O.A. could be considered the originators of puck rock, starting with their great hockey video for Taking Care of Business. D.O.A. also roughs you up with songs like Dead Men Tell No Tales, Beat ‘Em Bust 'Em and I Am Canadian. It is a non stop parade to the penalty box.

Get yours today at THORCENTRAL for only $12 postage paid in the USA!
($15 ppd for orders outside the USA)
