ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Babylon Mystery Orchestra lays waste to political correctness with its boldest artistic statement yet!

Islam, the Illuminati, Socialism and Biblical prophecy are all swirling around in this perfect apocalyptic storm that Babylon Mystery Orchestra has wrought, with its fourth CD, "Axis Of Evil." A fiery followup to its critically acclaimed predecessor; "The Great Apostasy: A Conspiracy Of Satanic Christianity."
Babylon Mystery Orchestra has fine tuned its Gothic hard rock/heavy metal approach. This time employing tighter and heavier arrangements to supplement the exquisitely aggressive subject matter. As always, Sidney Allen Johnson's lyrics provoke reactions. It's impossible not to be affected by them. He has perhaps even outdone himself with his twin towers of political incorrectness in the tracks "God Given Right" and "Crusader." The former being a song whose lyrics are comprised of actual statements by Islamic terrorists, and the latter being a defiant song of counter-resistance that truly invokes the passions of those original defenders of Western Christianity.
As always the tracks tie together to reveal a bigger message as to who constitutes the true "Axis Of Evil" and who are merely the tools used to attain certain objectives on a path to eternal damnation. It's compelling stuff, not for the light hearted or feeble of mind.
Johnson's vision of religion, politics and war is a masterwork that deserves serious consideration for its intellectual and spiritual depth as much as for its passionate expression. It is a rare record that can combine all these attributes, and rarer still in the genres that Babylon Mystery Orchestra is most associated with.
As always, Babylon Mystery Orchestra doesn't disappoint with the packaging. Each CD comes with a gorgeously illustrated 32 page booklet full of lyrics, text and commentary.

Babylon Mystery Orchestra-Axis of Evil
For those unfamiliar with Babylon Mystery Orchestra, it's important to recognize one thing. This music is the artistic expression of one man. Sidney Allen Johnson is a true artist. He is in singular control of all of his musical content, production, instrumentation, vocals, lyrical content, and distribution. This allows for something unique. He has the highest level of access to pure expression available. And he is doing something with it. I'll leave the listener to find understanding and interpret BMO's message-but let me say this. The artist makes frighteningly bold statements, and takes great risks. Axis of Evil, along with all Babylon Mystery Orchestra's musical offerings are challenging to the listener to say the very least.

The music on Axis of Evil is just majestic, as is the style of the artist. The songs can best be described by saying that they are beautifully arranged, orchestral, hard rock, sometimes heavy metal, darkly vocalized treasures. If you are a rock and roll fan of any type, you're going to be aesthetically pleased by this music, and often-you are also- just going to rock out. Comparisons to other bands have been made, but I, personally don't find them relevant. The music is unique.
Mr. Johnson knows what he is doing in that studio, and the one-man-band aspect of the songs is absolutely seamless.
One of my personal favorites on Axis of Evil is "When we Ride...you Die"-it bears the beautiful trademark orchestra sound, and has an exciting drum arrangement that is infectious. The song, "Crusader" lyrically can be seen as a call to an offensive on terror. Musically, it’s got great driving guitars, a guitar solo that just shreds, and an ending that gives a certain chill. There is "Diabolus Apocalypse" is stunning, with a lovely, eerie guitar solo. The song that ultimately has become my favorite, is "Illuminati". This song is just beautiful. Haunting, almost. It’s filled with gorgeous acoustic guitar sound. The kind of song you find yourself listening to over and over just to transport you to that feeling again. The lyrical content is of course, so thought-provoking as well. Makes for just a masterpiece.
And, I can't go without mentioning "Martyr". This song is different somehow. The vocal delivery on all BMO's offerings is strong. But, on "Martyr" there is something going on; at least to me. There is a passion in these vocals that evokes a different emotion. BMO's vocals are dark, strong, sometimes aggressive and almost threatening. This time I was moved. The song is beautiful, and almost painful-addressing the subject matter soberly, and solemnly.

If you are a rock and roll fan, a music fan, a fan of poetry, a fan of the arts of any kind you owe it to yourself-(trite as that expression is, it absolutely fits) to listen to Axis of Evil. You will never be the same. Babylon Mystery Orchestra provides you with a stunning booklet as accompaniment to guide you through the story. There is beautiful artwork to be seen, also. You don't get that anymore. In fact, you don't get what this artist is doing at all, ever-except with BMO. The man is doing something no one else is doing. In a way that is not being done by anyone. Personally, I think we all deserve that kind of experience in music; as opposed to the meaningless, commerce-driven offerings that are forced upon us by the industry with such great regularity. This CD is a strong, courageous piece of work. If you cherish your freedoms, if you think....if you love great music. It’s essential.

His Best Yet!!!
This is a very well done album. I own all of BMO's albums and this instantly became my favorite. The concepts are heartfelt and it shows in every song. The music is top notch as is production. I don't wish to be long winded so I will just say Thank You for a great work of musical art that stimulates the gray matter, and I will contenue to give one to every person I know who has an open mind (or thinks they do!). For all readers this is well thought out metal and worth more than one listen. (As all BMO's are! Check them out.)

Powerful
I like it when somebody will stand up and tell the truth, even if it IS politically incorrect. I've often said that the Chick comic tracts that depict the Catholic church as the end time beast was wrong, that it was the rise of Islam that would violate our Christian faith. It is scary to hear that others think like I do, and aren't afraid to speak out. A great gothic album. Thanks Sidney!
