This week's #MusicMonday choice brings us back to the band Sulpher

Sulpher were formed in 2000 by Rob Holliday and Steve Monti, who had previously played together in alt rock / electronica act Curve in the 1990’s. Sulpher were soon considered one of the most promising and progressive European industrial metal bands on the scene after their riotous debut album ‘Spray’, released in 2002, won rave reviews across the continent.

Sulpher were celebrated at shows supporting The Sisters Of Mercy, The 69 Eyes and Marylyn Manson, as well as prestigious appearances at many important European festivals, and were voted ‘Best British Heavy Metal Band’ in Metal Hammer in 2003. 

The turning point came when, after a temporary hiatus, Rob and Steve both found themselves very much in demand; Holliday embarked on arena tours around the globe playing guitar with Marylyn Manson and The Prodigy in front of over a million enthusiastic fans. Monti went on to work with Gary Numan, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Gang Of Four, Wilco Johnson and Pop Will Eat Itself as either a much sought after drummer, producer, or both.

The band are currently on tour in support of the new album No One Will Ever Know, and have completed dates with Jayce Lewis as well as dates in their own right.
JayRock recently caught up with Rob, and that interview can be heard here.

As our track of the week, we will play this every day for the next week at 6am, midday, 6pm and midnight and can be bought from here
