Derek Davis’ We are so excited about this release. It’s been 6 years since our last studio album “Revelation Highway’ came out and the band has grown a lot since then. The live album that we released last year, ”Live Lightning” really super-charged us to get back on our game and we really put a lot of time and effort into this album and it really paid off. The band had over 20 songs to choose from and we picked what we think are the best 11 tracks to represent the bands sound and direction. John Mathews and Ron Freschi really stepped up and gave me some awesome guitar riffs to work with and our new members Dylan Soto on drums and Craig Pepe on bass added a little extra because they also write music, so I had a lot of good music ideas too choose from and write lyrics to. Songs like the opening adrenaline rushed driving track, “Wrecking Machine”, the slow burn metal rocker “Pain”, and the atmospheric “Crashed Into The Sun”, really capture the bands diversity of our musical tastes and the input of the band members contributions really bring alive the energy and intensity of the tracks. While songs like “Face Of GOD”, “I Will Never Break Again” and “Sometimes Love Is Hell” are all great ballad musical arrangements and really have some interesting story telling for the listener. And of course we have some big catchy choruses the band is known for like the title track “Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day”, “White Hot Bullet and a real melodic catchy tune called “Looking For A Heartbeat”. The band also put together a ripping instrumental called “Super Beast” featuring some fantastic lead playing by Ron and John. We really took our time during the mixing faze and some of the song mixes I did had 5 - 7 versions of a track. So it was a little hard to choose sometimes which mix was the best to represent the song, it really was a thought filled creative process beginning to end. We also got real lucky to have grammy award winner David Donnelly ‘DNA Mastering’ to master the album, he’s done many top records we’ve all heard, ‘Motley Crue”, Chicago”, Aerosmith”, Slash” and a whole lot more bands we all know. This guy has got a great ear and knows his turf. Babylon A.D. can’t wait to start playing the songs live and we have some very exciting shows coming up, The ‘Whisky Go A Go’ in June and ‘Monsters On The Mountain’ in August in Gatlinburg Tennessee are defiantly some of shows we are really looking forward to playing.. I know the fans are really gonna love this album. You know what they say’ “Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day” and this album took a some time but man was it worth the wait!
