Music from Babylon A.D. features heavy hip hop band Achozen


What happens when you mix Shavo Odadijan from System of a Down, RZA from Wu-Tang Clan, Kinetic 9 from Killarmy and Reverend William Burke into a Molotav cocktail of a good time? You get the self-described heavy hip hop band Achozen – and the soundtrack to Babylon A.D.

Full disclosure: I was kind of hoping the soundtrack to Babylon A.D. would be kitsch enough to include a track by the eighties 80s glam band by the same name. But my wish was not Vin Diesel’s command. Their movie stardom will remain relegated to Peter Weller’s magnum opus Robocop 2, which featured a screaming rant by Sam Kinison from the song The Kid Goes Wild. Maybe they can work it into the Robocop reboot slated for 2010.

In the meantime, the music is a driving force of the movie Babylon A.D., propelling it with raw, explosive fervor. In addition to seven songs from Achozen, there’s one each from Quiet Riot and Sepultura. But just like the story itself, the movie Babylon A.D. contrasts good ole fashion action with a story of redemption and resurrection. Similarly, the soundtrack features classical music from Felix Mendelssohn and Franz Schubert, as well as Notre Puissance by Les Choeurs de L’armee Rouge (the Russian red army).

Check out the videos and downloads for the songs from Babylon A.D.

Update: There have been a number of questions about the specific songs used in the main scenes of the movie. Here are a few of the answers:

–First song in the movie: Deuces by Achozen
–Song playing while the tank is driving: Metal Health (Bang Your Head) by Quiet Riot
–First song during the credits: Immaculate by Achozen featuring Shukura Holliday and Walter Reed)

I’m still trying to pin down which song is playing in the club. I cannot make out the words, just heavy bass.

Here’s a sample of some of the music:

Deuces by Achozen:

Metal Health by Quiet Riot:

And Dead Embryonic Cells by Sepultura:

  1. the previews for Babylon AD made me expect something a lot more original… it totally felt like a cross between Minority Report and the Fifth Element

  2. That’s funny. I was thinking about titling my post Fifth Element Part 2. Very similar, but I think Luc Besson delivered better on the concept.

    I cannot help but the think the book Babylon Babies and/or director’s cut would be better. There was a lot of potential but it was a bit flat.

    Achozen ending up being the movie’s redemption, while it should have been Aurora herself.

  3. […] und einmal “Sepultura” und hier gibt es jemanden der den Soundtrack wunderbar seziert hat.) machen das ganze wieder wett und ich würde mir den Film sogar noch mal angucken, erst recht, […]

It has been shockingly open-handed with people like you to provide unreservedly precisely what a lot of people might have offered for sale as an electronic book to help make some dough for themselves, even more so considering the fact that you might have done it in case you wanted. Those points additionally served to become a good way to be aware that many people have the identical interest similar to my own to know the truth whole lot more when it comes to this condition. I’m sure there are several more pleasant sessions ahead for those who read through your blog.
