"Dominion" is a song by English rock band The Sisters of Mercy. It was released as the second single from their second studio album, Floodland, in February 1988. The version on Floodland, titled "Dominion/Mother Russia", features "Dominion" as well as an outro piece titled "Mother Russia". It was written by band frontman Andrew Eldritch and produced by Larry Alexander, Eldritch, and Jim Steinman.
Eldritch has revealed the song disguises an anti-American diatribe flavoured by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. At the time of release he also claimed that the second part of the song "Mother Russia" was a call for the West to give up Berlin to the Soviets, "because in reality they already control the city. It's only stupid to pretend otherwise".
Recording of the song took place in 1987 at Power Station Studios in Manhattan, New York. Like its Steinman-produced twin "This Corrosion", "Dominion/Mother Russia" features vocals from the New York Choral Society. The full version comprises two main parts, "Dominion" and "Mother Russia", with "Dominion" being released as a standalone single.
