This disc has a lot going for it, excellent and complex sound production, a rich crunchy bass-heavy sound, and an interesting mix of alchemical and cabalistic references in the lyrics. There is even a music video included on here as a Quick Time movie, for the computer-enabled among you, with footage of the band lurking around some European castle with the requisite Goth-babes. Yet this video illustrates my one major reservation about this band, the nagging feeling that these guys are yearning for mainstream attention, which carries over to their music. This causes them to come across like late period Sisters of Mercy crossed with Type O Negative. Their press release labels them as “Death Rockers,” which is a fair description. They wouldn’t sound too out of place on the radio between Rob Zombie and Korn, which I think is what Babylon Whores wants. If you think that’s what you want, give them a try.
