The band arose from the ashes of the nineties BM outfit Taakeriket at the turn of the millennium, intent to follow a path set between death and black metal, spiced up with a progressive mindset. As a quartet they recorded the demo “A Relic For The Damned” in October 2000. This lead to playing live support for Aeternus and a slot at the Hole In The Sky Festival 2001. After a couple of dormant years Sulphur returned to life in 2005, this time with a reinforced line-up and their second demo “Outburst Of Desecration”. This demo lead to a deal with Osmose Productions and the band started to work on their debut album. Following a second Hole In The Sky festival performance in 2005 the band entered the studio to record “Cursed Madness”. The album was released to great reviews in 2007. Sulphur anno 2009 are fiercer and more challenging then ever. There are few boundaries for what musical landscapes the band is willing to explore. The resulting album, Thorns In Existence, is an infernal and avant-gardish album willing to challenge, thrill and destroy the listener. Produced by Bjørnar Erevik Nilsen in Conclave & Earshot Studios (Helheim, Taake, The Batallion etc.) ensures that the album has the powerful sound the music deserves. Tracklist: 1. Revelations 2.
