No One Will Ever Know
(Oblivion / SPV - 2018)
The British band Sulpher is the brain child of Rob Holliday who played guitar at The Prodigy and Marilyn Manson. And so there are some elements of their sound in the new Sulpher album. The band was founded by Holliday and drummer Steve Monti at the beginning of the new millennium. In 2003 they presented their debut album Spray. Temporarily the band split up and after many years of touring Holliday is now back with Sulpher and their new album No One Will Ever Know.
For You Threw It All Away they slow down, the whispered vocals make me think of The Cure... But the quartet is less pop, more rock / metal. The chorus is catchy and invites you to sing along.
To get an idea of Take A Long Hard Look just watch the video!
But be aware that the song shows just a facet of the Sulpher sound!
Didn't Ever is a balladesque tune which combines industrial and shoe gaze... Towards the end the song explodes and becomes a monster - and then it's over. A monotonous tune and it's definitely not everybody's darling!
Slowly begins Tomorrow, almost fragile. The melodic tune is enchanting. And even if becomes a slightly bombastic ballade, it's never cheesy. This one I would describe as dark bombastic music. One of the highlights, even if not representative at all.
With Fell Through they offer a track based on an interesting drum beat, but switch to a riff-based part which give it a totally different spin. Actually the change between the two different sounds make this one stand out.
The closer Feels Like The End is a catchy tune which offers heavy riffs, industrial sounds, distorted vocals and... a catchy melody.
Probably this is an album one will love or hate... Mainly Rob Holliday's unique voice will be what makes you fall into one or the other group. Others might criticize the different sounds they mix, but in my opinion this is what makes it interesting. At the end of the day it's a matter of taste, I can just recommend to give it a try!
