    I like how this one begins, but the middle/end are not my favorite.

    Updated the info. There was a seed bank (a place where seeds of many species are preserved) in Leningrad established by Nikolai Vavilov (mentioned in the song). He'd collected seeds from around the world. His studies were mainly on crop genetics and improvement of yields to sustain the growing global population. Botanists at the seed bank chose to starve to death rather than eat the preserved seeds. “Solanum” is a genus of plant, some common representatives are tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants. “Asteraceae” is a family of plants, some common representatives are asters, sunflowers, daisies. “Babylon” was an ancient city, considered part of the cradle of civilization where many advances in agriculture were made. “All the grain of Babylon” is likely a reference to the diversity of crop species held within the seed bank. I’ll spare you from any further nerdery on my behalf. Unless, of course, you’d like to discuss the song or correct me on anything. Just note me or leave me a shout :]

    this one actually kind of bores me, lyrics are way too repetitive... but it is indeed a direct rip of No Quarter...
