A record 2000 years in the making.

Babylon Mystery Orchestra's first CD, Divine Right of Kings, was officially released in January, 2003. Listen to some of it on the Music page.

Welcome to the home of BABYLON MYSTERY ORCHESTRA


"And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." -Revelation 17:5

Divine Right of Kings

Tragedy: Defined by Webster's Dictionary as a serious play with an unhappy ending. So it is with the new 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 today's 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 super-state from which all the wealth and power in the world emanates. 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 in "Savages with Cash," Mystery Babylon shows the full extent of her evil. She places many gods over the one true God that gave her high place to her. Idolatry in its highest form: worshipping her own celebrities and ultimately worshipping the nation-state 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.

America, the Babylon

Is American Babylon?

"The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity. Nowhere in the Gospels do we find a precept for Creeds, Confessions, Oaths, Doctrines, and whole carloads of other foolish trumpery that we find in Christianity."
- John Adams -

"During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution."
- James Madison -

"Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law."
- Thomas Jefferson, February 10, 1814 -
