In his latest Ayreon release, The Theory of Everything, Dutch multi-instrumentalist, composer, singer and producer Arjen Anthony Lucassen unveils a completely revamped conceptual universe for Ayreon.
Gone are the complicated story lines featuring sci-fi, aliens and time-travel; in their place is a real-world drama set in the here and now.
As a one-man revivalist for the term 'rock opera', Lucassen has spent the past decade-plus meticulously cultivating a reputation for perfectionism within his chosen realm - progressive rock with a powerful yet symphonic heavy metal backbone.Ayreon is progressive rock with a powerful yet symphonic heavy metal backbone - this time with seven guest singers: Marko Hietala (Nightwish),Tommy Karevik (Kamelot),Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil), JB (Grand Magus), Michael Mills (Toehider), Sara Squadrani (Ancient Bards), John Wetton (Asia/ ex King Crimson, Uriah Heep) and many guest musicians such as Rick Wakeman (Yes), Keith Emerson (Emerson, Lake & Palmer), Steve Hackett (ex Genesis), Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Troy Donockley (Nightwish).
