Babylon A.D.

BABYLON A.D.

Formed in 1988, Babylon A.D. hail from the San Francisco Bay Area,
California. Original members, Derek Davis vocalist/songwriter, guitarists
and music writers Dan De La Rosa and Ron Freschi, Drummer Jamey
Pacheco and bassist Robb Reid were all in childhood rival bands. In 1989,
Babylon A.D. caught the attention of Arista Records president and industry
music mogul Clive Davis, who signed them at a live showcase in Los
Angeles thanks to their impressive three song demo and a home
made video.
Their self-titled album was released in 1990 which included their hard rock
classic hits (Bang Go The Bells) (Hammer Swings Down) (Desperate) and
(The Kid Goes Wild) which was the trailer song and video for Orion Pictures
ROBO COP 2. The band scored three number one songs at Metal radio
and reached gold on their first release. Their sophomore effort (Nothing
Sacred) released in 1992 produced two more metal rockers (Bad Blood)
and (So Savage the Heart). Constant touring throughout the early 1990s
and several MTV videos made them one of hard rock fans favorites.
After spending several years with Arista, the band signed with Apocalypse
Records in 1999 and released (Live In Your Face), a compilation of live
tracks recorded at various city’s throughout the United States. The bands
next release (American Blitzkrieg), soon followed in 2002 and both CDs
were well received by critics and fans alike. In 2007 the band released
Babylon A.D. (In The Beginning) on Apocalypse/Perris Records. Songs
from the original demo tapes that secured them their record deal with
Arista Records.
After a long hiatus, the band has regrouped with all original members.
The band is currently in pre-production mode for their 6th studio release.
2010 also brings Babylon A.D. back full circle with a new heart pounding
production of their #1 metal hit song (Bang Go The Bells). The new
recorded version has the same since of explosive energy from vocalist
Derek Davis and the melodic killer riff made memorable by Ron Freschi’s
guitar style, the songs monster groove remake is a powerhouse that takes
off and never lets up. This is truly Babylon A.D. at their best. Bang Go The
Bells, Redux 2010 – The new release from Babylon A.D. on Apocalypse
Records, Produced by Derek Davis and Ron Freschi, Recorded at Hatrix-
Media, Tracy, CA. Available at all online music outlets.
