Giotopia is an epic fantasy tale on music. Each chapter comes with a song and every musician has his own character in our story.

Here is the video of Chapter One: “A NEW SAGA” from the upcoming album ‘TRINITY OF EVIL!’

As you might or not might know, we will release song by song in video form for the new album!

Enjoy the first chapter, featuring the epic storytelling of Jennifer Thomé:

In May 2017, singer/guitarist/author GIOVANNI “GIO” SMET started to work out his plans for the GIOTOPIA project. The main idea was to tell a fantasy tale, combined with the fitting rock/metal music. Thus, each chapter would have it’s own song. Many musicians wanted to be a part of the project and so they each played their own character in the GIOTOPIA tale. Most chapters/songs could be seen and heard on lyric videos. At the end, there would be a book as well as albums ready to be published.

The debut album, “A FANTASY TALE ON MUSIC – PART I” was released May 5th, 2018 and had many International guest musicians such as RALF SCHEEPERS (Primal Fear, ex-Gamma Ray), FABIO LIONE (Angra, ex-Rhapsody), SRDJAN BRANKOVIC (AlogiA), SARA VANDERHEYDEN (Cathubodua), YGC (The Losts), CARMEN GRANDI (EGO, Neophobia), ZOYA BELOUS (Esperoza),..and more! Sixteen musicians in total.
