Another cover - this time it's "This Corrosion"

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.

Not so bad, but just another uninspired straight cover.

The singer sounds like Ben Christo, and Jyrki 69 is just... :lol: 8) "SHING" :lol: :notworthy:

The low vocals aren't that great, a bit too many cymbals and the guitar needs a bit more variation in the chorus.

Otherwise pretty good. :D ;D :D

I think this one's all right. vocals not too great but the music is nice n heavy.

Unfortunately, I am no expert, but I believe the nurse at the start of the vid is wearing "A Sisters Of Mercy" outfit from Ann Summers. Sometimes you have to be impressed with the oneness of the Universe.
I thought when they started they tried to make it more Rock n Roll - ie different, which is a good thing for a cover but it ended up being more a homage. The power of the original being too great - but 4/10 for effort.

like the way they are being tarred and feathered for trying.
Seems like the whole thing has been put through a Bon Jovi filter.

I think this is a really good cover. A slight pity about the faux death metal vocals - that just sounds silly - but the music rocks hard.

Credit is also due to them for releasing a cover like this - Eldritch gets the publishing on it, so they won't make much money, even if it's a hit.

I hate Jyrki with a passion. I see his ugly mug almost daily in the papers here, along with Ville "fishface" Valo.
Finland abounds in rip-off bands. LORDI=GWAR, H.I.M=The M*ssion, The Shicshty-Nine Eyesh =Type O Negative. And they get feted like gods here in Finnie just because they are Finns who the rest of the world have heard of slightly. Rarr..
My verdict, this is even worse than the In Extremo one.

No such thing as too gay :von:

And tbh, though the opening riff sounds like a Vision Thing rip, they sound more like The Nephilim from that song.

When I first saw the video, I seriously thought I was looking at a pregnant woman... turns out it was the lead singer... who knew?

I actually like the song (and the Maryslim singer's voice)... it could be so much better without that 69 eyes guy's voice. His singing turns every song into a laughing fit.

The "on days like this..." line makes me giggle every time, in the original; on this version, it's just laughably lame when paired with the imagery.

All the little "goth" kids I know are in love with the 69 eyes. :( They look like (and sound) like a rip-off of a few bands. And looking at one of their images (warning: it's huge) is like playing a game of spot the band.
