According to Prog Magazine Zio is a mammoth conceptual project. The track X-Ray

The first magical land that Alan must face is the colossal Burbwood, the largest in the world run by 3 Supa Monkeys’. It’s going to be a very long journey with little to no time for rest as Alan is very much against the clock in his heroic quest.  He is going to need to pick up the pace as he dodges those creatures from outer space that have invaded Burbwood and turn anyone in their path into skeletons with one fire from their x-ray guns.  They are merciless killers and Burbwood could seriously do with Alan’s help. Will he have enough time to save Belbi and Burbwood before the clock strikes?

The track Wings Inside,

The second world Oldati Forest is much much smaller than Burbwood but is impossibly awkward to negotiate. Alan must remain inconspicuous so as not to disturb the lands repugnant inhabitants or worse still be captured by Rivero, Oldati’s shady boss. It certainly won’t be a straightforward challenge but a wet and muddy adventure, where rivers run backwards and streams run above the trees soaking the land below turning the soil into a swampy bog. Will Alan escape through the land unharmed or will he be waterlogged and stuck in the marshlands forever?

About Ulf Backstrøm (7413 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
