This rocks from START TO FINISH! 25 Aug. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My God this is a killer album. Derek Davis shows off some killer vocals here. Although every song on this album is awesome, standout tracks are "Hammer Swings Down", "Crossfire", "The Kid Goes Wild", and "Maryanne". Is it possible to be into 80's metal and not like this? Probably not. Babylon A.D. were among many awesome 80's hair bands like XYZ, Killer Dwarfs, TNT, Bang Gang, Jillson, Shotgun Messiah, Britny Fox, and many others that just should have been far more popular. I've never heard Nothing Sacred but I'll review that album soon as I get a hold of it. If you like 80's glam, do yourself a favor and buy this!

Overlooked hard rock debut 13 July 2006
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are a lot of bands that were "overlooked" back in the late 80's and early 90's. When you really think about it, some of those bands deserved to be overlooked. There were a lot of hard rock bands from that era that just didn't stand out from the rest of the pack. Then there are bands like Babylon A.D., who despite having plenty of talent, never seemed to get the attention they deserved.

Released in 1989, the band's self-titled debut was a very solid hard rock/hair metal album. Babylon A.D. had a Warrant meets Tesla sound. It was melodic, but also bluesy with plenty of swagger. Jack Ponti (Surgin) wrote several songs for the album, which was a big help. His ballad "Desperate" is one of the best ballads I've ever heard; though neither Babylon A.D. nor Baton Rouge could make a hit out of it. Hard hitting songs like "Bang Go the Bells", "Hammer Swings Down" and "The Kid Goes Wild", make the album a rockin' good time, and one of the better "hair metal" offerings of the era.

This is a great hard rock album, and it's a real shame that more people didn't hear it. If you're a fan of the late 80's and early 90's hard rock sound, specifically bands like Wildside, Tora Tora, Tangier and Baton Rouge, you'll definitely want to check out Babylon A.D. Unfortunately, the debut is out of print and not easy to track down at a reasonable price.

Bang Goes the Bells !!! 23 Dec. 2012
By E. D. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you have this one laying around , forgotten, gathering dust its time to break it back out and remember all of the goodness that lies within. This is another sleeper from the late 80's that anyone who loves the genre definitely should have in their collection. If you dont have it and you find opportunity to get it do so !!
Babylon A.D. Still Rocks 23 Aug. 2014
By AndPask1366 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Formed in 1986, Babylon A.D. hail from the Bay Area in California. Original members, Derek Davis vocalist-songwriter, guitarists and music writers Dan De La Rosa and Ron Freschi, percussionist James Pacheco and bassist Eric Pacheco were in childhood and rival bands until Babylon A.D.. Later as a band, they caught the attention of Arista Records president and industry music mogul Clive Davis who signed them at a showcase in Los Angeles thanks to their impressive three song demo and home made video. Their self-titled album was released in 1990 and their sophomore effort Nothing Sacred following two years later. After spending several years with Arista and a five-year hiatus, the band signed with Apocalypse Records and released American Blitzkrieg in 1999. The band also released Live In Your Face, a compilation of live tracks that same year. They cite Led Zeppelin, UFO, Aerosmith, AC/DC, and Kiss as influences. ( Credit to mediasack )
Slick slice of late-'80s hard rock 19 Feb. 2008
By Motown J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Babylon A.D.'s eponymous debut is a prime slice of late-'80s hard rock, complete with slick production, heavy riffs, and huge choruses. Derek Davis' vocal work is a perfect example of the bluesy, melodic style of the time, and Ron Freschi's guitar playing is both big and memorable. Definitely a fun album to listen to, with catchy hits like "Bang Go The Bells," "Hammer Swings Down," and "The Kid Goes Wild," plus lesser-known cuts such as "Caught Up In The Crossfire," and "Desperate." Freschi's got a new project he's in the midst of recording called Syrym ([...] and their music harkens back to the heavier melodic sound of this first Babylon A.D. release.
