WATCHMAN not only manages to combine ingredients from the most diverse genres homogeneously, but also deliver coherent, technically demanding and exciting compositions that make "Doom of Babylon" a very special, independent album. WATCHMAN delivers on "Doom of Babylon" on the first impression "only" a not exactly easy to digest and even less accessible sound spectrum, but if you dig deeper into the matter, you notice that in all the weird and complex arrangements , intricately conceived compositions contain easily catchy elements. But once you have freed this nut from its shell for the first time, you will find that WATCHMAN is first and foremost a shrewd songwriter who even manages To present passages in such a way that even this exotic mixture creates a pleasant atmosphere. But the playfulness of melancholy should not be far away, as well as the dark and powerful sound. With "Doom of Babylon" WATCHMAN has created an outstandingly good album, innovative, emotional, atmospheric, playfully top, stylistically diverse and at the same time coherent. - Kobzr
