REVIEW : Babylon A.D. , Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day (Perris Records , Release Date : May 17th)

BABYLON A.D. is a band that I grew up with their sound and albums! Alongside Danger Danger, Lynch Mob, Motley Crue, Dokken and many others iconic 'Hair Metal' giants of the late 80's, early 90's, Babylon A.D. is an act that was influenced my music tastes!

Nowadays Babylon A.D. is back in business with a brand new record entitled "Rome Wasn't Built In A Day" through Perris Records

After a couple of spins of this new Babylon A.D. record I have to say that the band continues to deliver solid, powerful and classic melodic hard rock stuff with a more up-to-dated touch! 

The track that kicks-off the new album, "Wrecking Machine", is pure candy in my ears! Classic Babylon A.D. tune and that means powerful vocals, edgy and heavy guitars and a killer chorus line to sing-a-long. For sure, this will be a live favourite in the near future. The mid-tempo and moodier "Sometimes Love Is Hell" is just awesome and brings back memories from the band's earlier works. One of the album's highlights is without any doubt the titled track, "Rome Wasn't Built In A Day". Edgy, beautiful with Derek Davies vocal lines in top form this song is just killer!  

In "I Will Never Break Again" we have a 'darker' ballad which is relly solid while in "White Hot Bullet" we have a rockier and with a big bad groove tune that is among my personal favorites out of the new opus. The melodic "Crashed Into The Sun" and the up-beat "Shut Up" are both great! 

Overall, Babylon A.D. with their brand new opus comes to proove that they still got it to release strong, powerful and melodic hard rock albums in a very traditional way!! Killer stuff!
