The Edge of Sanity thread reminded me of something that I haven't thought about in a long time. It always made me smile when Dan would suddenly switch to 'Sisters of Mercy' mode. For example: Sacrificed off of The Spectral Sorrows.
What other metal bands can you guys think of that show clear Sisters of Mercy homage? There are certainly many 'gothic metal' (or whatever you want to call it) bands that adopted/aped a similar vibe; but are there any other bands that have done covers or rather seriously shifted their usual sound to do a song in said Sister's style?

None. Sisters reign supreme.

The Sisters do rule, always will. I was obsessed with them when I was a kid, and still hold their work in extremely high regard (except for the reunion show I attended several years back where it was just Mr. Eldritch and a couple no-name 'faux-metal' kids on guitars ... very odd, and didn't work).
Is Edge of Sanity really the only metal band to have done this, though? With the wealth of knowledge and experience out there, I was hoping someone might have a few examples we had not heard much of yet. Oh well ... an even bigger 'hats off' to Dan for the move then.

I was just talking about this! Not precisely SISTERS OF MERCY, but close enough in that style. VARATHRON does it with "The Dark Hills" on Walpurgisnacht.

Out of nowhere on the album, this bassline comes in and I'm in goth land. So good:

Hell Yes! Now we're talking. Absolutely badass! I had totally forgotten about this one, and now I have to dig out the album from my stacks for a fresh listen. Huge thanks for the reminder!

I have always loved that about the old Greek style in general ... they have always been savvy to the importance and impact that those kinds of bass-lines can have. Zephyrous was always great for that too, in my opinion.

First Nightingale album is quite gothic, in good and bad way. But, naturally most in this topic already knows it, but anyway.

while in the 'greek' vein ...

riff beginning at 0:22 from Necromantia - The Warlock

always reminded me a bit, in tone, of Sisters of Mercy - Marian

Proud owner of 3 SOM shirts, and still one of my all time favorite bands next to Fields Of The Nephilim.

This is what I immediately thought after seeing the thread. Killer song from the best Varathron album.

FURBOWL "Still Breathing"

Although I think they had more of a Neffs influence...

Agreed - that reunion tour was a total abortion and I was so disappointed.
