Opening part of the concept story:

“Criminals & Kings” is the 1st of 5 concept albums based on Ian Parry’s fictional story of a turbulent world wherein society slowly changes as mass migration reaches epic proportions.

People turn a blind tolerating man’s extreme aggression fuelled by the lust for oil, money & power. Outspoken objective opinions are no longer tolerated. Fearing for their survival, women have no other choice but to split society into two separate species as the planet’s eco system is struggling to sustain life!
