Sisters of Mercy

Just to keep things interesting, I give you Sisters of Mercy. A double post if you may. First up is their debut album, First and Last and Always which spawned the hit (especially here in the Philippines) Walk Away. Sisters of Mercy played goth music with metallic tendencies and a dash of dance beats on the side. Sadly, about two years after it's release, Guitarist Gary Marx left and formed Ghost Dance while Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams formed the Mission.

Next up is their collection of their three major label releases, A Slight Case of Overbombing. This is a very good release and it includes classics such as This Corrosion, Dominion, Temple of Love, Walk Away and my personal fave Lucretia My Reflection (the bassline on this one is awesome and I can't get it out of my head, as if it's branded in my brain or something).

the really great stuff is the earlier 7 inchers, which are collected on "Some Girls Wander By Mistake." Much more raw, and a couple decent covers like the stooges' "1969." That first LP is still a damn good one though.

the video for Lucrezia is stunning as well.
