"The Haft Khan" is a new concept album based on one of the stories from the great epic masterpiece poem, the most notable piece of Persian literature, "Shahnameh" (The Book of Kings - One of the world's longest epic poems) which was written by the Persian poet, the world known "Ferdowsi" between c. 977 and 1010 CE. “The Haft Khan” story, narrates seven difficult challenges of a national hero, the greatest of the Persian heroes, called Rostam on his journey by his legendary horse “Rakhsh” towards the land of Mazandaran, to save and free the king "Kei Kavus" and his army who have been captured and blinded by spell of the White Demon. In the story, Rostam passes seven stages and fights against natural difficulties, fierce animals, demons and at the end, the white demon. Finally, by dropping the blood of the white demon's heart in the eyes of Kei Kavus (the king) and his army, sight returns to their eyes again. The story of "The Haft Khan” is full of metaphors and symbols and represents some of the most important characters, legends and myths in the ancient Persian mythology and history
