The San Francisco, CA. based band,
Babylon A.D., came onto the metal scene late (1988), and wasn't signed
on a major label until Arista Records picked them up in 1989 after an
L.A. talent show.
Like many late comer metal bands,
Babylon A.D. faded away as the
Seattle sound took over like a swarm of nasty, naughty,
germ-ridden roaches. They are
most known for their
1989 self-titled album and the songs "Bang Go the Bells"
and "Desperate." Some of you may even remember
the song "The Kid Goes Wild" that featured Sam Kenison and was featured
on the soundtrack for Robocop 2. Their second album, Nothing
Sacred (1992), also featured a couple of hit sings you may remember
("Bad Blood" and "So Savage the Heart").
Even though they hit the scene
late, many of you will remember they had some very good MTV coverage in
the early 1990's. Babylon A.D. was a solid, hard rockin' band,
and we highly recommend their debut album. They released a
new album in 2002 called
American Blitkrieg and another release, In the Beginning,
in 2006. This 2006 release includes songs from the band's original
Arista demo tapes.
