Roxx Records is very excited to bring one of our very own personal favorite recordings back to life. !

We are very excited to bring you not just “Babylon,” but the bands entire recording catalog back to life on CD and vinyl for the very first time! “Babylon” was originally released on cassette tape only and 5000 of those were pressed back then! Before “Babylon” the band would also release another demo on cassette tape only entitled “Louder Than Hell” with only 1000 copies of this one being pressed, both are impossible to find these days. After those two releases the band would get to go in to the studio and work with acclaimed producers, John and Dino Elefante, where they would work on and record two tracks that would be released on the compilation “California Metal II.” This would mark what would be the last recordings the world would see from Soldier, until now!
