Album Notes
The revolution is moving across the nation! Rise up! Re-volt! Man your stations!
The revolution is moving across the nation! Re - Volt!

A bull horn blasts its opening line salvo from the title track of the new solo debut release by Northern California’s, Derek Davis. Former singer/songwriter of Arista Recording Artists, Babylon A.D.. The first rock/metal band personally signed, by the legendary music mogul, Clive Davis.

The hard rock, retro/metal mind blower of eleven tracks captures an angst ridden, sometimes dark, and yet poetic true to life world in which most of us can now relate. (Did someone say perfect timing?)
But this is not your typical metal rock formula release.

From the opening tracks revolution call of (Re-Volt), to the second song (Bad Man Cometh) an up-tempo motion picture style soundtrack with …“surprise! A rapid-fire rap delivered by guest artist, Monte Carlo. And through the third track, a bombastic guitar driven slow grinder called (Tied Down and Hammered) “you kick me with your steel toed boot - you hit me with your iron fist.” You just might think you have the man and the sound all figured out. Then suddenly out of the blue comes, (Troubadour). A beautifully crafted acoustic song with a surreal story of new found love and hope, with the Spanish style guitar playing and glass-like strings adding depth and emotion to the songs moving lyrical content. The battle cry of (American Jihad) follows with a funkafied bass line driven by a menacing vocal attack, with Derek delivering every line with bullet like precision. (Hollywood Heartbreak) is a solid up-tempo rocker with a “Born to Run” like theme.
On track seven’ Derek really breaks out the production with (The Promise) a heart breaking paradoxical death bed love story. The music is spacious and mystical, with clean roto-verb type guitar sounds, a strange rhythmic drum beat and a haunting vocal. It is also the first single from the record! Up next are (Judas Kiss), where Derek cranks out a brutal tale of betrayal and revenge. (I love U 2 Death) dark and vampirish, (Love Star) a temptation driven, sexy groover. And the final track (Desperate). It is a great big luscious ballad. A wall of sound and orchestration, with the arrangement and lyrical content perfectly weaving a sad tale of loneliness and isolation, “Everybody’s desperate just like you.” This song has massive hit appeal written all over it.

Derek Davis has brought together an eclectic mix of songs. “It’s not the Beatles White album, but I feel I have had the freedom of expression to write and produce music the way I have always wanted, something you usually can’t do with the restrictions of a major label,” says Derek.

Lyrically, and musically painting a moving picture landscape. Derek has created a true modern anthem rock album, with a wild and twisted roller coaster ride of emotions for its listeners. The vocals, melodies, musicianship and production are excellent and the execution and arrangements all fit together nicely. Vocally, Derek’s style is high-octane grit, full of electric energy, different enough to push beyond the modern day Daughtry clones and provide the material with the exact right combination of power and attitude.

The revolution is moving across the nation! Re - Volt!
The new solo CD by Derek Davis is available now on Apocalypse Records.

9 out a 10 stars
This new Cd by lead vocalist Derek Davis, singer from Babylon A.d. and American Blues Box is very different and cool. It has hard Rockers like "Tied down and Hammerd" Judas Kiss', Hollywood Heartt Break' which could have been on a new Babylon A.D. record . And also some very beautifull ballads, 'Troubadour" The Promise" and a new version of Despeate a great song by B.A.D. , there is also so some very differnt stuff here that grows on you "Bad Man Cometh" has a industrial feel and a rap! "American Jihad "crazy lyrics and thumpin bass. Overall It is alot different Than I expected, but great first CD for singer - songwriter Derek Davis, now I cant wait to see what he has coming next.

Great!!!! Fantastic!!! Smoking!!!
I have been waiting for this CD to be released after I a read a blog about Derek Davis.
I had only heard a small sample of the song 'The Promise' and was hooked.
After listening to the full CD I am convinced he is a Superstar. This is the first CD I can ever remember owning that has not one bad song. The three ballads are all #1 hits in my book, and the rocker tunes are full of so much energy It's hard to discribe just how catchy yet different they are . My heart belongs to this man . I will be a fan for a long time to come! LM

Long time fan of Derek
I've been hooked on Derek's music since Babylon A.D. I also have American Blues Box and I really enjoy them all. I can't wait to get this one in my hands and into my CD player!! The songs all sound incredible, as usual, and I will be rocking to this one for a long time. Thanks for the another GREAT CD, Derek.

Karen Luzinski

Derek Knows What Works!!!
I love that Derek is trying new things with this album but still brings the power like always! His nephew's rap on "Bad Man Cometh" is a great way to twist up his sound a bit and it works for me! He seems to be able to make music the way HE actually wants to, and through that remains a great original artist of the day! He's not afraid to rip a few curve balls the listener's way! Excellent!!!
