SULPHUR is one of those bands that is able to straddle the line between Death and Black Metal with ease, whilst their use of progressive twists gives their sound a distinctive edge.   Since current and former members of bands such as GORGOROTH, ENSLAVED, AETERNUS and VULTURE INDUSTRIES  got together in 2000 to form SULPHUR, the band has released two demos and two full length studio albums, the first being “Cursed Madness” in 2007 on Osmose Productions, followed by 2009’s “Thorns in Existence” on Dark Essence.

SULPHUR’s next live appearance with be in Bergen at Blastfest on the 19th February for a special Dark Essence Records event, along with label-mates THE 3RD ATTEMPT, COR SCORPII, KRAKOW and SLEGEST.  Other  Dark Essence Records’ bands appearing at Blastfest will be MISTUR on the 17th and TAAKE on the 18th, whilst VIRUS, from sister-label Karisma Records, will also be playing on the 18th.
