Some day, some day (vocal goodness #2)

On the classic album "Floodland" (1988) Sisters of Mercy's mainman Andrew Eldritch had used a secret weapon for creating two of the most memorable goth-rock anthems ever made: the New York Choral Society. By combining the dramatic choir chants with Eltrictch's dark yet catchy melodies and haunting vocals, both Dominion/Mother Russia and This Corrosion had turned to be a milestone in dark pop/rock and two fine examples of magical compositions breaking down musical boundaries.

Featured in the videos for these songs was the one-album bass player - goddess Patricia Morrison, who well fitted the general direction of Eldritch's both visionary and musical needs. Dominion video was filmed at the Red Rock in Jordan, and supported a middle-eastern mysterious schik. This Corrosion was a darkened, wet and crowded tale of rain and black leather. Two beautiful songs and cult videos, from one great, legendary band.


Don't miss out This Corrosion video!
