After nearly a decade touring the planet as members of The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Prodigy, Marilyn Manson, Curve’s live band, Sulpher has regrouped to commit another sonic assault on the nation’s music venues.
The four-piece, voted ‘Best British Heavy Metal Band’ by Metal Hammer magazine and who previously played to 14,000 fans a night in support of Manson.
Started by multi-instrumentalist Rob Holliday and Monti in the early part of 2000, Sulpher presents a distinctly gritty style of industrial alternative rock, paying homage to the legendary Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson, while mixing the experimental sounds of such groups as Curve and The Prodigy.
Sulpher was hailed in many rock magazines as the genre’s new hope after the release of its debut single ‘Spray’ in 2002, and as a result secured national tours with the some of the scene’s biggest and best.
Their Metal Hammer award only heightened interest in the band, and their reputation spread worldwide when their track ‘Fear Me’ was used for the USA 2002 Winter Olympic Games promo ads throughout movie theatres and primetime TV in the states.
The band previously toured throughout Germany in 2002 at various festivals, as special guests of The 69 Eyes and Sisters of Mercy.
