ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From one of the most well known stories in human history comes the second offering from Babylon Mystery Orchestra. However, "On Earth As It Is In Heaven" is no ordinary tale. Culled from ancient and controversial texts, it is the story of the origin of music itself. Built on a backdrop of fallen angels and the well known flood story, this is a tale of the highest treachery and betrayal. The story of angels that knowingly violate the laws of God for one brief moment of world domination, bringing with them a forbidden knowledge and behavior.
Since this is Babylon Mystery Orchestra, you know there has to be a twist to this story. The music brought into this world was, by no means, a benevolent form of entertainment. Music was used to actively teach and promote violence and debauchery. It's ultimately successful purpose: to decieve the whole of mankind and drive them away from God. By it's description, this music could easily be called rock and roll. Once again Babylon Mystery Orchestra dare to ask a most dangerous question: If rock and
roll was used to decieve and destroy the entire world thousands of years ago, what is its purpose today?
Long Live Rock and Roll?....It already has!!
"On Earth As It Is In Heaven" comes packaged with a full booklet containing all lyrics and additional text.
Babylon Mystery Orchestra is a unique blend of classic, gothic and doom metal with an emphasis on strong lyrical content.

Music for a sunny day.
Weighty concept, even weightier music. Reminiscent of a shotgun marraige between Sepultura and Aldo Nova, albeit on a methadone drip. My only complaint was that the tune 'Violation' was not a remake of the title track of Kiss-clone Starz' sophomore effort. Good and thick, keep on rockin...

Brandon M.

Even better than the first one.
Babylon Mystery Orchestra take the sound of the first CD even farther on this one. There really is nothing that compares to this music. The lyrics are powerfully projected with very impressive vocals. Very heavy sounding. A very epic sounding work. Highly recommended.

He's not afraid to take chances when it comes to controversial subject matter
I like the honesty and cander behind the lyrics and story on the Babylon Mystery Orchestra releases. The overall recording and production is excellent and the packaging rivals a major label release with lyrics and biblical passages to guide you through the story. The music as a whole has a definate Goth feel to it with some classic metal thrown in for good measure.

Christine Parastatidou

A majestic, enchanting and extremely clever release that no one should miss. Aft
I am not aware of many bands and musicians (well, I think that in this case the word musician is inappropriate and the word artist should replace it since it is more suitable) that have REALLY something to say, artists that take this great opportunity and make their music the foundation on which they build and explore worlds, feelings or ideas. Such a thing requires many things... imagination, inspiration, being blessed by nature with talent, having the "magic touch" and like Midas' turning everything into gold, but above all it needs guts. What if you have all needed, but you don't have the strength and guts to tell or do it? Well, Babylon Mystery Orchestra which are personified through Sidney Allen Johnson is a band that ought to be recognized. Do yourselves a favor to enrich your taste and broaden your horizons with this magnificent masterpiece! I don't think any of you will say that I might be exaggerating as long as you keep an open mind. Accepting something that is out of the ordinary and realizing its true beauty is not always an easy task to accomplish, cause you have to foresee and understand the depth of it. Babylon Mystery Orchestra belong to this category. Their music is original, special and unique. It's extraordinary beautiful in its melancholy, gorgeous in its conception, it has multi leveled messages, it's colorful with superb soundscapes and it's eloquent. I don't think that any of you have listened to this far anything close to this music. Of course you will listen to some TIAMAT and SISTERS OF MERCY touches and you will actually hear a kind of music that is the marriage between heavy metal and gothic and yet it's more than that, a lot more! The concept is beautiful and no one has ever touched a similar subject before! Talking about the origin of music through a biblical point of view and perception is extremely intriguing! Those who are aware of the books of Enoch, the dead sea scrolls can figure out the importance, seriousness and beauty of the concept! After all we shouldn't forget that Lucifer was God's favorite angel and he was the angel of light and music... The production is very good, serving to elevate the compositions and the artwork is amazing and simply gorgeous. A majestic, enchanting and extremely clever release that no one should miss. After this journey is over, we will all come out of it wiser...

This is more than music
The music on this is great but there is so much more to it than that. This is truly interesting and will make you think a lot about the world around us.
