Sulphur arose from the ashes of the nineties black metal act 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 and eternal damnation the band headed back into the studio in March 2006. Again under the supervision of producer Bj..rnar E. Nilsen which also produced the Outburst demo.
