Title: Babylon
Post by: ObiwanKenomi on July 17, 2016, 05:55:36 PM
Babylon was a Symphonic Progband from Florida USA, which was active somewhere in the mid of the seventies. The band was formed by:

Rick Leonard on bass, bass pedals & vocals
Doroccus on keyboards & lead vocals
Rodney Best on drums & percussion
J. David Boyko on guitars
G.W. Chambers on keyboards & vocals

They recorded only one self-titled album in 1978. The album contained four tracks:

1. The Mote In God's Eye (7:00)
2. Before The Fall (10:54)
3. Dreamfish (9:12)
4. Cathedral Of The Mary Ruin (7:38)

They music they made is hard rockish with influences of early Genesis. The album was released on CD in 1999 by Syn-phonic. Somewhere early 2000, Syn-phonic also released two livealbums, but unfortunately the soundquality of the original recordings was poor.

The original vinyl release belongs to my personal collection.
