Modern Day Babylon biography
MODERN DAY BABYLON is a djent/prog-metal band from Czech Republic. It was founded by guitarist Tomas RACLAVSKY at the end of 2010, then joined by Vojtech SEMINSKY (drums) and Marek MRVIK (bass). Music is influenced by djent wave represented by the groups such as ANIMALS AS LEADERS, PERIPHERY, TESSERACT and CHIMP SPANNER. They prefer instrumental tracks and have been established as one of the most interesting band in Czech Republic.

The first shot was EP ''The Manipulation Theory'' (2011) and won Czech Britva Awards for discovery of the year and also mini-album of the year. Two years later comes the full studio release ''Travelers'' with some interesting guitar guests like Jakub ZYTECKI (guitarist of DISPERSE), Chris STOREY (ALL SHALL PERISH) and Sergey GOLOVIN from Russia.

Tomas RACLAVSKY is skilled and talented guitar player on 8-string guitar with djenty structured riffs and some nice melodic tunes. MODERN DAY BABYLON has also gained fans outside of their country and they will probably continue in progressive-metal work.

5 stars Sure I don't like djent, but what the hell, these guys are fantastic. In my last review for their 'Travelers' I feared they were losing track. No way. They are reborn here even stronger than in their debut EP 'The Manipulation Theory'. Guitar riffs are back and superb, in the place where they should have never left, driving the compositions from beginning to end, cuackcuacks are under control and well used, and drums are much wiser, behind the guitars, as it should be. The spatial interludes are also well mastered, shorter and more interesting (what an exit from that in the track 'Illusion'!). All tracks are gorgeous, but check 'Water Drops', simply marvelous. Yes, this time MDB hit it. These guys are working their path to the top. 5 well-earned stars.

4 stars Short and easy. Interesting this kickoff work of the czech band. To me, djent is not a way of playing or a style, it's simply an excuse for not doing more music, a resource for teenagers to gulp down in live concerts. That's ok for those without music in their souls, but not for these travelers. MDB has music, plenty of it, and should give it to us without any cliche. Why would you like to be compared with Animals as Leaders (they hit first!)? I'm aware it takes a bit more effort, but we will listen to it many more times, perhaps many more years. The guitar has it; there are excellent riffs, and there should be many more. Com'on, you can do it MDB!

3 stars Short and easy. These guys play, no doubt, they play music of their times. It is obvious we are not in the 70's. Why do I mention this? Originality. The 70's were not just a bunch of great bands. It was a singular point in time, an explosion of sounds and styles all new, but mostly of compositional effort!! That's why it will always sound as new. These guys play, and even compose, and they do it well. But they borrow too many sounds, they lock themselves within a style, or a sound, whatever you like, in the tech-djent stream. They dropped quite the hoarse cuackcuacks since their debut EP "The Manipulation Theory", but the remaining cuackcuacks are less inspired here. Unfortunately, while they moved forward into an ambient space tech sound, the great guitar riffs are fewer here. Something important is lost in the way. There are good tracks, but others are kind of apathetic. This band may be losing the good track. The tech-spatial won't take them anywhere.
Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
