Luca states, “Zero Gravity (Rebirth And Evolution) is surely a special album for all of us. It’s original, various, modern, intense, symphonic and progressive, built around the vocal skills and unique talent of Fabio. In short, the perfect album of transition from the power/speed metal of the past to a new generation of modern symphonic metal offering us new exciting artistic stimulations, wider perspectives and future possibilities. After the farewell tour we accepted to be part of this new adventure only if we could have realized a debut album like this, closer to the music we like to listen to nowadays. We refused any compromise or any easy commercial operation. Time is running fast and in this moment of our life, as we always did until now, we chose to create some new music respecting our heart and soul, as art should always rhyme with heart. Low tuned guitars and riffs à la RAMMSTEIN, vocal arrangements à la QUEEN, the progressive elegance of DREAM THEATER, the powerful yet ethereal and rarified atmospheres of bands like NIGHTWISH and WITHIN TEMPTATION, electronic music, ethnic instruments from different geographic areas of our wonderful planet… no artistic limits anymore. We trust in our beloved fans and their fundamental support for this being just the beginning!”

Fabio adds, “Zero Gravity (Rebirth And Evolution) is the album we always wanted to do and a new beginning for us, there’s really a lot of stuff inside and surely something unique and original. Every song offers a different musical adventure, this record is fresh, various, modern, intense, symphonic and progressive. I’m sure most of the listeners will be surprised and will enjoy the variety and the different “colors” we can offer in the songs. Thanks to our fans we were able to have a great production and the perfect album to start our new path with this unique new band and sound!”

Luca states, “Zero Gravity (Rebirth And Evolution) is much more than an album title. It is a real band mantra underlining the evolution of a great artistic collaboration, a modern day approach and the intention to evolve the band’s sound to a new frontier, conceptually, musically and lyrically. This debut album will definitely present the multiple faces of our new band: modern ultra-heavy guitars, a vocal roller-coaster inspired by QUEEN’s masterworks, dramatic arrangements, breathing soundscapes enriched by ethnic music elements from different continents and surely the most emotional and intense lyrics we ever had. The new artwork realized by Heile represents the synthesis of such evolution and the deep heartfelt message related with it!”

Adds FabioZero Gravity (Rebirth And Evolution) represents the perfect evolution of a musical vision we had, a great artistic collaboration to create a new fresh sound with amazing ideas, great production, hard work from great musicians and people involved and most importantly, a fantastic start for this new band. The new artwork realized by Heile represents the synthesis of such evolution in music and an amazing work that underlines the musical adventure you will have and feel listening to the record.”

In support of the album, the band set up a crowdfunding campaign to finance the recording process, through which they collected an overwhelming amount of €60,000 from their loyal and dedicated fanbase.
