SULPHUR picture
SULPHUR arose from the ashes of the nineties Norwegian black metal act from Bergen TAAKERIKET. The band was originally formed as a four piece, and with this line-up recorded their first demo; "A Relic for the Damned" in October 2000. This recording earned the band some initial interest, amongst others a support gig for AETERNUS and an appearance at Hole in the sky 2001. After this, the band fell on some hard times and little happened for some years.

In 2005 SULPHUR re-emerged with new material and a fresh and dedicated line-up. At this point the band recorded the demo "Outburst of Desecration". This earned them a deal with Osmose Productions, great reviews as well as new live appearances, amongst others on Hole in the Sky 2005. Eager to continue down the road of success the band headed back into the studio in March 2006. Again under the supervision of producer

SULPHUR Cursed Madness

Album · 2007 · Black Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Cursed Madness" is the debut full-length studio album by Norwegian black/death metal act Sulphur. The album was released through Osmose Productions in January 2007. Sulphur were formed in 1999 out of the ashes of the Bergen based black metal act Taakeriket. An act who existed from 1996 to 1999. Sulphur released the "A Relic for the Damned" demo in 2000, but then disappeared for a while before returning in 2005 with the "Outburst of Desecration" demo, which earned them a label deal with Osmose Productions for the release of "Cursed Madness".

The 9 tracks on the 37:23 minutes long album are a combination of freshly written material and re-recorded demo tracks. "A Relic For The Damned" also appeared on the "A Relic for the Damned (2000)" demo, and "The Summoning", "Realms Of Darkness", and "Great Shadow Rising" also appeared on the "Outburst of Desecration (2005)" demo.

The relatively long timespan between writing the tracks is heard in the stylistic diversity of the music. While the overall sound is a technical (even progressive at times) black/death metal style, some tracks are more black metal oriented while others are more death metal oriented. The vocals are raspy black metal styled vocals though. Although there is some variation between tracks, I still think "Cursed Madness" is fairly consistent in quality and there is a decent flow to the proceedings too. If I have to mention references I´d mention artists like Enslaved and maybe a bit of Satyricon.

"Cursed Madness" is well performed by skilled musicians (tempo changes, stylistic changes, and other musical features are handled with ease), and the sound production is raw, powerful, and detailed too, which suits the music perfectly. So upon conclusion "Cursed Madness" is a good quality debut album by Sulphur. It maybe lacks that last piece of originality and musical red thread to reach the excellent mark, but it´s still an enjoyable listen and a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

'Thorns In Existence' - Sulphur (8/10)

Although it has spread throughout the world, black metal first picked up momentum- and consequently became infamous- in Norway. Although Norway's golden age of black metal is now long past, there remains a strong presence there. Sulphur has now been around for the better part of a decade, but I only found out about them recently. There are musicians here who have also found a place in other Norwegian black metal acts like Gorgoroth, Enslaved, and Vulture Industries, so in a way, this band is a perfect representation of where the Norwegian black metal scene stands today. Drawing sounds from heavyweights Dimmu Borgir and the progressive metal of Emperor frontman Ihsahn's solo career, Sulphur's second album 'Thorns In Existence' is a fine piece of work from this band, although its meticulously produced sound may scare away those looking for a more traditional sound.

The way that Sulphur opens up their album instantly makes it clear that they are different from the bands we have heard before in Norwegian black metal. Instead of jumping straight into blastbeats, or a drawn out ambiance with wolf howls and what have you, the band uses a mellotron. The instrument that is best known for its use in progressive rock is opening a black metal album, and instantly gives it a progressive tinge that will lurk in the music throughout the album. Musically, the style of black metal that Sulphur plays leans in close to the cleanly produced, symphonic black metal that Dimmu Borgir plays, and this is likely to be the first comparison that alot of listeners draw when they first listen to 'Thorns In Existence'. However, a better way to compare Sulphur might be to Ihsahn, whose solo material has been some of the greatest metal to come out of Norway in recent years. Although very melodic at times, the thing that makes Sulphur most different from the early black metal is its technicality. The blistering riff that opens up 'True Father Of Lies' is indicative of this, rumbling through notes quickly and furiously, throwing listeners into a very intense soundscape without much warning.

Instrumentally, the band doesn't throw many more surprises at the listener after the first couple of songs, but the musicianship is excellent and often balances technicality with heaviness quite well, even throwing in a dash of traditional beauty to soften things up a little. One thing I didn't find quite so excellent were the vocals of Thomas Hoyven. Not to say that his vocals are necessarily bad, but I felt underwhelmed by them. They are close to Ihsahn's growls, but lack the same dynamic and power to them. With that being said, I feel that 'Thorns In Existence' could have had a little more emotional intensity to it. While I am very impressed on a musical level with what the band is doing here, I would have liked it to pull me in on a more visceral level as well. I am rarely one to say this, but the album did feel a little too cleanly produced, which may have kept it from sounding as atmospheric as it could have been. That, paired with vocals that could have had some more flair to them detract from what is otherwise a great experience. Sulphur's 'Thorns In Existence' is definite proof that the Norwegian black metal scene has moved forward past its origins.
