Babylon Mystery Orchestra - The Great Apostasy: A Conspiracy of Satanic Christianity - indy - 2006
Johnson takes an unique perspective on societal religeon and its concepts throughout history. The songs "Church of State" and "Antichrist Superczar" focus on society at large and the belief that politics, sex and reliegous fear dominate our culture. "Eye of the Needle" is a song about a corrupt religeous figure who markets himself for profit.
Throughout the CD cover you will find passages from the Christian Bible, and other evangelical sources, that Johnson finds reflection in. It gives the listener an inside to his intent, his message and his mission. "Words are very important to me" says Johnson. It is clear his lyrics are his poetry in motion.
"The Great Apostasy: A Conspiracy of Satanic Christianity" is instrumentally reflective shadowing notes of reminiscent roots in traditional blues-like riffs and acoustical presentation but it's gothic metal sound lies at its forefront. I'd recommend it to fans of Mudvayne and similar artists who are interested in exploring a unique gothic metal sound mixed with messages that are cast towards society's belief system as a whole.
