Tragedy: Defined by Websters Dictionary as a serious play with an uhappy ending. So it is with the debut release from Babylon Mystery Orchestra. 'Divine Right Of Kings' explores the ultimate American tragedy in this most unusual heavy metal opus. Never before has anyone dared to merge the worlds of politics and religion with such daring language ripped from todays headlines. Yet it's a story 2000 years in the making. Is America to be found in the frightening words of Biblical Prophecy? Is she ultimately hopelessly doomed to destruction for having betrayed......GOD? From the powerful arrogance of the opening track 'We Are Power' we see this superpower of all time: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT a lone superstate that all the wealth and power in the world emanates from. As our story unfolds we see that though she may have no apparent enemies to her face she has many to be found in herself. 'Road to Madness' shows her people in a state of confusion. 'Whore' shows her wicked lust for money. Has there ever been a song about the stock market before? 'It's My Right' reveals the wonderful world of infighting over politics. Yet with 'Savages With Cash' Mystery Babylon shows the full extent of her evil. She places many gods over the one true God that gave her her high place. Idolatry in it's highest form: worshipping her own celebrities and ultimately worshipping the nationstate itself. But no tragedy would be complete without an introspective look into how all these things affect the individual. 'Save My Soul' and 'Evado Eversor' offer two totally different responses to the situation. With 'Mourning Glory' and 'Divine Justice' the great empire is Judged and ultimately reaps her reward. The reward for the listener is 'Crestfallen' a melancholy soliloquy that eulogizes the lost empire. Along the way all sort of musical twists and turns guide the listener through the tale, employing violins, violas, cellos. Divine Right of Kings: Hear it today.....Live it tomorrow. Divine Right Of Kings comes packaged with a full booklet of additional text and lyrics. Babylon Mystery Orchestra is based in Greenville, Alabama in the southern part of Mystery Babylon The Great.
