‘Best British Heavy Metal Band’ - Metal Hammer.
Celebrated British Industrial Alternative Rock quartet Sulpher, the band fronted by former Marilyn Manson / Gary Numan / The Prodigy guitarist Rob Holliday, have inked with Oblivion / SPV to release their new album ‘No One Will Ever Know’, late in August 2018. ‘Take A Long Hard Look’, the first single to be taken from the album, is set for release on March 16th, followed by second single ‘Used’ on May 18th, and third single ‘No One Will Ever Know’ on July 13th.
Sulpher were formed in 2000 by guitarist / multi-instrumentalist Rob Holliday and drummer / programmer / producer Steve Monti, who played together in alternative rock / electronica act Curve in the 1990’s. Their debut album ‘Spray’, released in 2002, was hailed in many rock magazines as an utterly phenomenal LP, leading to Sulpher being voted ‘Best British Heavy Metal Band’ in Metal Hammer.
Their track ‘Fear Me’ was used for the USA 2002 Winter Olympic Games promo adverts throughout movie theatres and prime time TV in the States, raising the band’s profile even further. Marilyn Manson was so impressed that he invited Sulpher to support him in Germany, where they wowed the totally knocked-out 14,000 plus crowd. Rob went on to become guitarist in The Mission, Gary Numan, Marilyn Manson (!) and The Prodigy. Steve went on to work with Gary Numan, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Gang Of Four, Wilco Johnson and Pop Will Eat Itself as either drummer, producer, or both.
