This is a damn good book… The writing and level of detail puts you right there in the room with Andrew.

Jaysen Michael

I would suggest this a must have for any fan of The Sisters of Mercy - it is one of the best music biographies I have read (and I've read a LOT of them). The book provides insight into the song writing, analysis of lyrics... story of the dynamic of the times, the record industry and most obviously the band.. It's what I want when I get a music biography.

John McDonagh

It’s definitely worth it for any Sisters fan, but I’ll go farther and say it’s one of the finest examples of the genre, period.

Sean Moore

An absolute treasure trove.

Tom Rodwell



Bernard Posman

So fucking good.

Chris Dillon

This book is so well written, it’s both detailed and thrilling, never boring. The writing style is addictive: limpid and literary. I try not to read too fast because I don’t want it to end… And the object as such is breathtaking. The quality of the paper and the photos, the typography, the cover. A great publisher would never have done better in my opinion.

Mathieu Barbe

Brilliant book and will be referred to for years to come.

Tim O’Gorman

I have a feeling this will be the Sisters bio that all others will be compared to for years. High quality is found throughout, from… the thick paper stock down to the clarity of picture reproduction and font. It feels substantial in hand as well as the content. Mr. Ristow went above and beyond with his research and in tracking down all of the amazing unseen photos… It definitely feels like an heirloom quality book.

D.C. Voss 


The front cover photo alone is worth the money.

Neil Piper


This item is pure class.

German George


What a great book.

Nikos Foskolos


Definitely turned my crap weekend around.

Bradley W Zimmerman


It’s a great book, I read it in a day. It’s a cliche but I genuinely “couldn’t put it down.” 

Steve Wilmers

I couldn't put it down until I got to the end.

Tom Riddler


Absolutely loved the book. I couldn’t put it down!

Aoife Le Roux


It’s great. Buy it because if you’re a fan you’ll love it… So much more than I expected. 

Fraser Neilson


The book is tremendously good. Worth every penny!

Christian Manfred


Buy it. It’s brilliant.

Bart Boussauw


Order! Order!

Michael Hiney



Paulie Gladden


So great!!! 

Ollie Conraculix


It will be worth the wait, it’s a brilliant book!

Paul Evans


You’ve made an old goth very happy.
