Babylon Is Rising
(c) 2021 Citizen Regen

Verse 1:
One world one people was always the goal
Chasing the dream straight down the rabbit hole

PreChorus:
It won't take long
For things to go wrong

Chorus:
Babylon is rising it's clear to me
Critical thinking has been cancelled today
It doesn't matter what we think or see
There's a crowd that will spin it their way
Babylon is rising I'm here to say

Verse 2:
False idols and theories on the fringe
Are the recipes to become unhinged

Repeat PreChorus:
Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:
We need to find common ground
Before we utter another sound of dissent
We need to find common ground
Before we utter another sound of dissent
Before we utter another sound of dissent

Solo Synth
Solo Guitar

Short PreChorus:
It won't take long

Repeat Choruses:

Outro Guitar Solo

 Cool song and Great job by Everybody. Who is doing the vocals ?  I'm hearing an EQ change on the mix from around 2:33 to about 3:00 where the highs seem to drop out then come back in. It seems pretty obvious especially on the lead guitar. I think the lead could be ducked a little under the vocals and brought back up between phrases.  Just my first impressions.   I Really enjoyed it , don't hear much metal around here ..        mark

The All Starz!

This is one super group that is truly a super group, not just a bunch of names dropped to earn clicks, but a an amalgamation of artistic elements producing a novel compound.

Not into metal but I liked this one nevertheless.
Also, what Mark said above about the EQ. Just seems like the volume drops in that section.

Thanks for the listen Mark. We'll take a look at that section on the next remix.

Wow - that was cool; well done everyone! As someone that enjoys symphonic metal (in addition to other genres too) I loved the overall sound of the mix, and the guitar solo.

My only comment on the mix is that metal is usually compressed a tiny bit more, with a bit more emphasis on the low end. I realise that it's quite nice to not overly squash the mix though.

Pretty epic piece here dudes ! Forum all stars all around.  The vocals are so well done and mixed in here, super clarity in a very busy mix  . . . nice.

Just a pleasure to listen to how the band comes together here . . . wow, was this all done virtually, remotely ?

This is a cool hard rocking song - I really enjoyed the lyrics and the vocal - nicely done. Solid mix - sounded good to my ears.

Tasty guitar licks Tom.

Great stuff all around. If I compare to earlier BJZ songs I think the vocals fits better in the mix now. Well played in a great song.
