Dutch multi-instrumentalist Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon, Star One, Ambeon, Guilt Machine) recently started working on a new project, and is now revealing fans its first details. It will be a collaboration with Arjen's favorite female singer, Anneke Van Giersbergen (Anneke Van Giersbergen, ex-The Gathering), and fans should expect an epic concept double album, a combination of "classical meets metal" and "acoustic folk". More details to follow.

I'm in! Arjen has been listening to Devin lately, it seems
Gopherhawk - 22.04.2014 at 17:47  
She's one of my favorites too.

This will be amazing!

Let's hear it! Arjen's new stuff is always interesting. I don't know how he can create so many projects and still be distinct from one another.

That picture's got to be the happiest thing in metal.

I'm intrigued.

"acoustic folk"

I'm reluctant... but still intrigued.

Cant wait to check this out

Acoustic folk? no thanks... but I'll check it out when it comes out I'm sure...
but come on... I craving for new Star One!

I'm mostly interested in acoustic folk part. This could be a very open minded album.
PocketMetal - 22.04.2014 at 21:13  
This sounds really promising, I love Anneke's voice and I love acoustic folk too, if it's good. Great news for me.

Recently got into some of Anneke's work through Dev so I'm quite excited about this

I'm not in love with Anneke's work, no matter how many times I've tried to get into it. But anything Arjen does, I will instantly get hooked on like an all-consuming drug.

This guy roks!!!!
Lethrokai - 23.04.2014 at 09:24  
I'll be honest, the folk elements of recent Ayreon records have been some of my favourite folk moments in metal, so to see a whole project show quite a bit of that is definitely a plus for me!

God she's overrated IMO. Whatever happened to him seeking out new unheard vocalist!? I'll probably pass on this. Wasn't too happy with new Ayreon ...

Yup! She played the Egyptian.

I'm here for Anneke!

I do love their collaboration, even though Arjen's music isn't my cup of tea exacly. Have to admit I do find some of his songs with Ayreon absolutely wonderful though. Bt just a few (definatelly all which feature Anneke!)
