2008 gründete sich die Band Sulphurous in Dänemark und veröffentlichte bisher vier Demos, 2017 ihre erste EP mit „Abomination Temple“ und 2021 die zweite EP „Encircling Darkness“. Ausserdem gibt es eine Compilation aus beiden EPs die 2020 erschien. Ihre erste komplette Platte kam 2018 und hieß „Dolorous Death Knell“. In diesem Jahr gibt es am 22.10. den zweiten Longplayer – The Black Mouth Of Sepulchre -, der laut Presseinfo von Beginn an, quasi mit betätigen der Playtaste, den Körper ein lauerndes Gefühl der Angst überflutet, wie ein alles verzehrender Lovecraft-Terror aus den düstersten Tiefen. Heute habe ich M.F. im Interview, der für Guitars / Vocals / Piano zuständig ist. Viel Spaß beim Lesen!
Tobi – M.F.
First of all, I want to ask you, how are you and your bandmates doing right now?
Hello. Im not doing the best these days due to a concussion. But the rest of the band is doing good.
Please introduce yourself and your colleagues form Sulphurous to me and my followers, to know you a littlebit better!
This is M.F. writing. Sulphurous is one of my oldest bands where I make all the music, and basically T on drums and the new member on bass (on the album) M.C. are friends from another band who play on the recordings.
Where comes your bandname from?
My brother who used to play in the band maybe 9 years ago came up with the name. It was taken for the demonic and malevolent meaning and disgusting vapour of sulphur.
What can Metalheads expect from your second album „The Black Mouth Of Sepulchre“?
More death to this world.
About what is the story from the album „The Black Mouth Of Sepulchre“?
The Black mouth of sepulcre is the next chapter of Sulphurous, the album is about the inevitable consuming of death.
Your first single was the titletrack „The Black Mouth of Sepulchre“! About what do you sing about in the song and who is or what is sepulchre?
This song is about the Eater of dead and conquerer of worlds from a realm of nightmare.
Are there more singles to come?
Im actually not sure if the labels – Me Saco Un Ojo and Dark Descent will introduce more songs before the album is released.
Can you please tell me a little about each Song in one sentence?
From the nothingness of my birth to the nothingness of my death I am trapped in darkness.
„Dry Breath of the Tomb“
Unveiling shrouds of afterlife chaos shall reign.
„Shadows Writhing like Black Wings“
Wings span the horizon glimpses of purgatory forgotten.
„Eyes Glaring Black Fury“
Dead and unbearable, the look of hatred.
„The Black Mouth of Sepulchre“
From the house of fury and flame lies he who come to do violence.
„Gazing Into the Patch of Darkness“
Of impending downfall empty eyes gazing.
What can we expect from „Sulphurous“ in the near future?
Hopefully more dark and malevolent chants of death.
How about playing live? Are there any plans to play across Europe?
Live shows wont be a thing for this band. I have to many other bands where we play live. We did play live more than 10 years ago. But there has been too many lineup changes and I dont have the time or energy to find yet a new lineup. There is a curse on this band I guess.
Do you have a fav song on your upcoming release?
I dont know. Maybe its more different parts in the songs that stand out for me. Not so good at having favorite songs and choosing favorites whatever.
In which formats will „The Black Mouth Of Sepulchre“ come to us Metalheads?
The album will be released on Vinyl by Me Saco Un Ojo Records, on CD by Dark Descent Records and on Cassette tape by Desiccated Productions.
How about the other release you made. The EPs and demo for example. Do you want to release them someday as a compilation?
There is already 3 other vinyl releases. 2 singles – Abomination Temple (released by Night Shroud) and Encircling Darkness (released by Me Saco Un Ojo), and the first album Dolorous Death Knell on 12“ (released by Night Shroud).
But there will actually be a compilation cd printed in Brazil by My Dark Desires Records. Coming in November I think.
Is Heavy Metal and the subgenres also a means for you to switch off everything in this hectic world, to pause and just listen? Do you listen to other music as well?
Yes very much so. Normally I listen to a lot of metal, rock, punk and hc. That is what takes up a lot of my time.
What was the best album released in 2021 so far in your opinion? – except yours!
Hmmm Im not really good at choosing best albums and such. But I would say that the new Hyperdontia album will be on of the best albums released in 2021. Wait and see…
And what was the best Death Metal album released in 2021 so far in your opinion?
Hyperdontia – Hideous Entity
What band or musician did influenced you most in your musicial live?
Poison Idea, Deicide, Nile and Morbid Angel.
Which album was your first Metal album bought of your own money, and why?
It probably was Slayer. Love those early records. I started listening to hardcore and punk at 10 years of age. So this was a crazy and amazing way to get into more heavy music for me.
Get away from the music a little. What about hobbies?
Music, football and my kids.
A few words to your fans out there in Germany and all the others in the world?
Evig Er Kun Døden
