A blinding ball of teeth and claws from Rome, New Babylon are like a greatest-hits package of rock’n roll’s sleaziest moments... ( Classic Rock U.K. issue 208)
…..each song is all you can ask for - great riffing, great pounding drums and vocals with decent choruses that will stick in your head for a fair few days (Ross Welford - uberrock.co.uk)
However where this lot really stand out is through the killer grooves they throw out, each of the songs getting you shaking your head, strutting your stuff and throwing all manner of unseemly shapes. Seriously killer and this issue's "must have" EP (Steven Reid – Fireworks)
The hard rock band NEW BABYLON was born in 2006 by the will of Matteo Bellezza (back then guitar player in the metal band ENEMYNSIDE). With the first line-up the band released a 4 tracks promo in 2008. To promote the cd New Babylon had the chance to play live supporting bands like Crashdiet Babylon Bombs, Faster Pussycat, Enuff'Z Nuff, etc.
In 2011 New Babylon went on hiatus to get back together in 2012 with a new line-up consisted of Matt and Jonna ( guitars), Freddie (vocals), Payne (bass) and Sergeant (drums). The band entered the “Green Mountain Audio” recording studios on February 2014 with the GIUDA sound engineer Danilo Silvestri to record a new EP titled "My New Baby" released last October 2014 and available in all digital stores.
The title track of the new EP has been released on the Classic Rock U.K. cd compilation out with the issue 208 of the magazine.
After the releasing of the EP, NEW BABYLON parted ways with singer Freddie replaced a few months later by the new singer Cris. With the new line-up the band on April 2015 performed live in the U.K. for the first time. The 27th of April a new version of “Can’t Stop” performed by Cris has been released on I-Tunes and Spotify as new single .
