BEYOND THE UNIVERSE
Beyond the Universe (Acts I & II) is the story of a couple: Emily, trapped into another reality in search for the way back home and Abe, in his desperate search for Emily.
The story is a metaphorical journey through the problems of our time and a lasting need for mental sanity, expecially in a world where nothing is at is seems.
The story is also illustrated via drawings, which will be sold separately or included in a digital artbook in a future deluxe edition. A novel is planned for the coming years.
(A high percentage of the income from sales will be given to nonprofit organizations for mental health research and cancer research)

theicon is a progressive rock/metal band based in Rome and originally created by Adriano Taccoli, Stefano Brunetti and Tiziano Bernardini around 1992.
During the period from 1992 to 2002 the band composed a series of works called Nemesis, although they remained as a sort of demo/tank of ideas for works to come.
The first demo as a full band, called “Museum of a Bliss”, was released in 2008, followed in 2010 by a full concept album called “And then there was the rain”.
The band passed through many lineup changes, reaching a stable one in 2015 with Daria Simonetti and Margherita Palladino on vocals and Luca Fareri on drums.
In 2019 the band was ready to produce their first official album called “Beyond The Universe”, a concept divided in 2 acts.
