The Sisters of Mercy are an English rock band, formed in 1980 in Leeds. After achieving early underground fame there, the band had their commercial breakthrough in the mid-1980s and sustained it until the early 1990s, when they stopped releasing new recorded output in protest against their record company WEA. Currently, the band are a touring outfit only. The group has released three original studio albums, the last of which was released in 1990.

The Sisters of Mercy (formed in 1977) is an English gothic rock and post-punk rock band who rose to prominence in the 1980s following their debut, hailing from Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. Named after the Leonard Cohen song Sisters of Mercy, which members heard in the 1971 film McCabe & Mrs. Miller, the band was formed by Gary Marx and Andrew Eldritch in 1977. The band’s debut output was the single Damage Done/Watch/Home of the Hit-men, following which Sisters of Mercy invited bassist Craig Adams and replaced Eldritch’s drumming with a drum machine. But where's the wonderful spidery guitar-work from their first album? The atmospheric stuff? The answer is that because it sounds 'gothic', and Andrew Eldritch can't stand that tag, it's now turned into groove-heavy but utterly boring guitar work.

The Sisters of Mercy were always a live band – albeit one with mechanised beats courtesy of drum machine Doktor Avalanche – and a damn fine one at that. Swathed in dry ice, this was a band that dug deep into a vast catalogue whilst gleefully playing obscure or wildly surprising cover versions. Yet here now was Eldritch surrounded by session musicians in tow and former Gun Club bassist Patricia Morrison added almost as a visual garnish to his comeback. The origin of Floodland can probably be traced back to the departure of guitarist Ben Gunn. The album also contains probably the most idiosyncratic song in The Sisters of Mercy cannon in the form of ‘1959’. Stark and almost painfully naked, Eldritch’s lone voice is set in bleak contrast against a melancholy piano.

As with every decade, the ‘80s were an era of musical transformations. Genres such as hard rock and punk slowly declined and were replaced by others including post-punk and gothic rock. Led by their iconic vocalist Andrew Eldrich, the Sisters of Mercy released their debut in 1985. First and Last and Always, even though hindered by poor production, left its imprint on gothic rock but at the same time left a band in shambles. To make a long story short, Floodland is basically an Eldrich solo album under The Sisters’ moniker whereas First and Last and Always featured contributions by all members but mostly Wayne Hussey and Gary Marx. What’s more, Floodland was recorded with heavy use of sequencers while First and Last and Always featured a more traditional approach.

The Sisters of Mercy are a rock band that came out of the British post punk scene in 1980-1981. The band cited Leonard Cohen, The Stooges, Suicide and Motörhead as among their influences. The group has made three original studio albums, of which the last was released in 1990. At the time of the second Sisters album, the majestic Floodland (1987), The Sisters were essentially a studio-bound outfit, although by the time of Vision Thing (1990) Eldritch had again formed a fully-working band to take the album on the road. That incarnation was short-lived. Nonetheless, the band have been touring regularly with stable long-time varieties of personnel ever since and currently includes Chris Catalyst and Ben Christo on guitars as well as Ravey Davey on nurse duties to The Doktor. A legal dispute ensued over the rights to the name Sisters of Mercy; Adams and Hussey attempted to use the name Sisterhood, but Eldritch released an EP under the name to prevent its usage, and the two finally settled on the Mission. Eldritch chiefly utilized a corps of temporary sidemen from this point on (although former Gun Club bassist Patricia Morrison was an official member of the group for a short time) and rebounded with his two biggest-selling American LPs, Floodland and Vision Thing.
