the new m*****n single

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

I like it too.

There are quite a few little 'Sisters-isms' on the new album. I hope that people will see it is a good thing that Wayne has taken inspiration from his time in the band rather than being critical.

Someday....someday...

Etc. Hmmm. Then again, I could be way off. :)

I'm probably the biggest Mish supporter on this forum, but I think this is Wayne marking time. It's got all the early Mish/Sisters sounds, but not much of a tune. I don't actually dislike it, but I think it's all gloss and no substance. Hopefully the album will have some proper melodies to go with it.
Any more of that and we'll be round your front door with the quick-setting whitewash and the shaved monkey.

I used to heart the Mish years ago...

Ville Valo from HIM, though? Why? It's not like you can hear him, anyway...

I think he is only in the video, not singing.

Anyway, the music is not bad, nice rhythms and stuff ... but not more than that. And then this singing again ... *suffer ...

No, Wayne has said he sings bvs on the track.

OK, then that voice is likely the reason why HIM never made it with me, either ...

i gave this a fair hearing and listening to it objectively i think that musically there are far better third-generation* goth bands/records and vocally far better third-rate goth bands/records.

* 1st gen being the progenitors: the sisters, cure, bauhaus, joy division etc (the who "arent goth" :roll: ); second gen being the nephs, the mish, eve et al who were happy to be goth back in the day; 3rd gen being current bands like -for example- the excellent Rhombus.

Just so I have it clear. I've been listening to a fourth rate, second generation band then?

Whatever it was, it certainly wasn't the fifth generation of Rock 'n' Roll.

Meh could have done with more light to see the ink on the dancer. Other than that not that impressed seemed like a pastiche of the God'sown* era stuff and that wore thin for me quite fast.

Only stuff of theirs I found listenable and I quite like the jangly 12 string sound and the music on the tunes. However the words just wound me up and made it hard to listen to, only song of his word wise that I felt was powerful was the one he wrote about child abuse.

Actually, the spelling should be META-MORPH-OSIS to mean correct something in it's language base. I know, it's Greek :urff:
Metamorphosis has nothing to do with Amor :P even though if you get hit with the arrow, you transform yourself :lol:
Anyway i like the riffs, i like the singing. It reminds me a mix of Floodland with some major instead of minor chords. With an improved sound of guitasr used in FALAA. I like how make duet with Ville Valo.
Generaslly positive, it will make the way to my mp3 player when i drive :D

Ha! i hadn't noticed that (because i didn't look) but you're quite right of course. if it had been my song though i would have got it right, as to do otherwise could show you up for the ignorant pseudo-pseud we always knew you were. ain't that right Jezza? :von:

If it was me I would have gone for METAM OR PHOSIS

I think it's always good to have a choice.

Met-amor-phosis.

Amor as in Love in portuguese (which I think you all already know, and as far as I know Wayne lives in Brazil and is married to a brazillian).

So, we have.

Met
love
for Sis(ters).

He made peace with his past and is ready to let go of the bitterness of the split, since he's also covered Marian some time ago and…

Originally I wrote something about a car crash but realized Sissies wouldn't be driving in the same lane as the Dandies...Yuck.

Anyway...thanks! :wink:
