About Modern Day Babylon
MODERN DAY BABYLON is
first djent - groove - ambient Czech project.. It was founded by TOMAS RACLAVSKY in the end of 2010 and started as a one-man project. Though today it performs as an instrumental trio who is past its succesful debut and is receiving unusual praises by critics. Still in the time of preparations of the debut album, the project has been completed by conservatory graduates VOJTECH SEMINSKY (drums) and MAREK MRVIK (bass) joining MDB . This three-member group has been stirring up the Czech progressive metal scene ever since. Some of the proofs are the Newcomer of the Year 2011 award and the Minialbum of the Year 2011 award, given by „Britva Awards“, a chart composed by some of the biggest names of Czech music media. Next award came from server got-djent.com for 17th top release of 2011. All three awards went to he debut piece THE MANIPULATION THEORY. The album launch was celebrated by supporting the American apostles of the same genre, band Periphery. Shortly after came the offer to perform at the United-Kingdom Tech-Fest which is about to take place in British Alton, July ‘12. MDB will play alongside other present formations, such as Textures,Chimp spanner or Monuments. In October 2012 MDB released single Differentiate with great singer from UK Maxi Curnow as a guest. In 2013 was MDB forced to change post of bassguitaris, because Marek didn´t have enough time for band. After quick search, they found young and talented bassguitarst Premysl Kuncincky. Recording of first LP album “Travelers” which will be released at the end of this year started with him.
