Hinter dem Namen ENTERING POLARIS steckt Mastermind Tom Tee von THORIUM, der für den 22. Juni 23 ein Doppelalbum mit 23 Songs und 16 verschiedenen Sängern plant. Darunter sind zum Beispiel David Marcelis (THORIUM, LORD VOLTURE) der auch bei dem jetzt veröffentlichten`The Tempest And The Sea` den Gesangspart übernommen hat, sowie Fabio Lione (RHAPSODY), Roy Khan (CONCEPTION) oder Mike Andersson (TUNGSTEN). Erscheinen wird das Mammutwerk unter dem Namen „Atlantean Shores“ / „And Silently The Age Did Pass“  wobei nur eine Scheibe davon als proggiger Heavy Metal, die andere CD melancholisch, mit Chören und klassischem Orchester daherkommt.

Tom Tee erklärt zur Auskopplung:

“The Tempest And The Sea is one of several epic tracks on the album(s), with an extended running time and many different sections. The numerous twists and turns throughout also serve as a metaphor, as this song is all about weathering storms – about the tempestuous and often capricious nature of the sea, of nature itself, and indeed of the human spirit. As the seas may be both beautiful and terrible, tranquil and turbulent, so it is with the heart of Man. For the video, I wanted to work with a younger and an older actor, the implication being that they may (or may not) be the same character; both facing and enduring the squalls that Time and Tide throw at us, yet with the elder, through hard-won experience, no longer daunted in confronting the storm. The recurring motifs of the Saint Christopher medallion, and of the lighthouse where the band is playing, serve as a reminder that no matter how fierce the gales that lash at us in life, there are always safe harbours to be found.”
