BABYLON MYSTERY ORCHESTRA - THE GODLESS, THE GODFORSAKEN, AND GOD DAMNED
Metal To Infinity
this is something totally new for me, as this one manís project is partly
interesting for musical adepts, but it goes much further as the brain of B.M.O.
is a pure right winged individual who likes to stab around and judge about what
is going on in the American society and beyond. Judging might not be the correct term, as he is more into
revealing what is going wrong in the U.S. This so called political
insurrectionist is Sidney Allen Johnson, and a topic for his next album could be
the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico by BPÖ
letís have a chat about the musical capacities of Babylon Mystery Orchestra.
If we have to pigeonhole, we would say that this is just straight forward
hard rock, with no fringes, extras or eccentricities. So, we hear a lot of metal
and hardrock day in and day out, what makes us believe that B.M.O. has nothing
more to offer than 12 rocking songs of average quality.
And how about the vocal chords of Allen?
Well, most of the time, heís telling his story, and thatís rather
strange also. Heís quoting, also
in the booklet of the cd, and although he might be right or telling the truth, I
wonder if people are waiting to hear all that negative comment.
If you look around your own area, you will notice
what is going wrong, but I personally havenít the urge to create a cd out of
that.. If I buy an album, I buy it in first place to enjoy the music. Now, there
is a feeling creeping which could make me dejected..
only advice that I can forward to all of you is try to listen to this output,
and judge for yourself if itís delivering what was expected.. Ö Ö
