Video: Sleepmask. Nine While Nine (Sisters of Mercy cover).

It's hard for me to listen to other bands cover songs of my absolute favorite bands/albums/tracks, because the odds that it will be an absolutely blasphemous and appalling butchering of something kind of magical are way too high. Some things are sacred! However, Sleepmask - you pulled it off, and with class. Well played. Congrats on Sleepmask's recent show opening for the legendary David J (of the seminal goth band Bauhaus), as well! No small feat. If Sleepmask would next cover The Cure's "Plainsong", I will be forever grateful.
