The POZ Chronicles

Late March 2020

The POZ have been working hard over the past few months preparing their live set but the realm of Earth, now fully in shutdown, has altered the time streams and for now they must rest.

The Prophets have answered the call to return into the otherworld, there to lay upon their couches of dreams (at least two meters apart) until all things evil have passed.

Until then The Prophets of Zarquon wish you all well and send you all the positive blessings from their hearts.

Lord Z, Dr R.Shroud and Jon Blackstone going through a bit of Dreamcatcher and Pictures of Parallel.

THE DREAM REALMS

In the dream realms of the otherworld it can sometimes be rather difficult getting the paths of The POZ to cross (as they fly in many different plains). But! now The POZ are proceeding with the second stage. live practice for a one off gig, to reach fulfilment next year.

THE BACKING OF THE POZ

The Prophets of Zarquon's practice involves the use of a special live backing track, created by Lord Z. Each member has an individual tailored copy with their part removed allowing practice without the other members.

And as POZ move forever forward, The backing track will be constantly sharpened and edited by Lord Z, with input from Dr R, Blackstone and  Blaize.

In its final incarnation the backing track will left with only the drums and sound effects. At that point full POZ live rehearsals will take place.
