385. The Sisters of Mercy

Known primarily as a Goth band, The Sisters of Mercy combined dark imagery with an intriguing blend of Alternative Pop, Metal and Psychedelic influences.  A very polarizing band, their brooding fans identified with music on a very deep level.  Those who were not fans found them a self-aggrandizing group that was not as good as they thought they were.  Regardless of opinion, their spot as a key Goth and Alternative band is without doubt.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 2005   Country of Origin: United Kingdom (Leeds, England)   Nominated In: Never   NIHOF’s Favorite Album: Floodland (1987)   NIHOF’s Favorite Song: This Corrosion (From Floodland, 1987){acepolls 324}
