The following message was posted on Ayreon's official website:

"The very first vocalist for the seventh Ayreon album was recorded in the Electric Castle Studio last week. We're not revealing the name of the vocalist just yet, but you can listen to a sample of the voice (without instruments) here.

During the time leading up to the official announcement of each of the vocalists participating on the new Ayreon album, we'll be giving acapella previews of every vocalist. Currently 12 vocalists have been confirmed, and a few more will be added.

Discuss the sample, and all things Ayreon, on our messageboard or on Arjen's official MySpace site".

Damn! Who is it?
Darkside Momo - 18.06.2007 at 18:16  
Don't know... Irene Jansen ? Doro ?

WARNING! SPOILER!!!

This was posted by Arjen in the official forum, after some pages of discussion between curious fans...:

"You've got it, it's Magali Luyten! SHE's a young and talented rising star from our 'neighbours' Belgium. Amazing *and* goosebumps

The lyrics were really close, here they are:

Carry out your dangerous task, sail uncharted spheres
Live out our dreams, ride the comet!
Journey on the Migrator trail, cross the new frontiers
Pass on our genes (jeans, haha!), ride the comet!"

She is known from the band Beautiful Sin, where Uli Kusch plays.

oooh i like it i like it
this album is going to be really amazing, Arjen is possibly the greatest musical genius still around in today's music scene
Katatronik - 18.06.2007 at 20:23  
Yeah I agree! This will be a great release, as the previous one (masterpiece IMO)...

I believe that aswell. Even if 2007 is a fucking incredible year, one of the best in a very long time. Almost all my favoured bands are releasing something this year! just need a new Opeth album, and a Pink Floyd reunion
And he's going to release acapella samples with all 12 (and more) vocalists!!! I can't wait!

Doro? Bah! The resemblance isnt even close in the slightest.

Looks like Tina Turner is gonna be on the next Ayreon album. Why is this band even on the site. Such overrated light poppy dribble mixed with some prog and everyone laps it up like antifreeze at a petting zoo.

Once again me and you are alone in the universe it seems, maybe we just didnt get the free crack that Arjen was sending out in the mail to everyone else.

Well, Arjen is a nice guy. But musically I just don't get the fuss about him, especially concerning Stream of Passion. The only stuff he is on I can slightly stand is the really old stuff, namely when he was in Bodine and later on in Vengeance.

Arjen's work has yet to do much for me either, though I do like his choice for vocalist on this little sample here... Stream of Passion was highly overrated for me too, though I did like the track "Deceiver" very much. The only Arjen project I enjoy personally is his 2001(?) project called Ambeon So, don't worry, there are even some melodic fans out there like myself that don't understand why he's on godlike status
Ireth Alcarin - 19.06.2007 at 16:05  
As usual, Arjen has a good taste in picking up the singers for Ayreon the new album is gonna be surely magnificent

Not a very mature statement to come from a moderator. I'm sure I would find some of you're favoured bands bad, but that doens't mean that I can figure out why people like them. And I'm sure it's not impossible for you either to figure out why people have a slightes interest in Ayreon.
By the way, what do you mean "song"?

to each their own, sir. remember that. and for a "moderator" you're very immature. if you don't have anything good to say about Ayreon then don't post here because this news is for Ayreon fans only obviously. no need to be a little kid about it, trying to ruin the news by saying stupid things like "OMGZ AYREON SUXXXS!!111"

a big for you. Ayreon owns your entire soul and you'll never be better than Arjen. you don't even realize and that's all that really matters
Bitch Boy - 19.06.2007 at 23:44  
She's got a powerful voice, but I didn't like it that much I think will sound a lot much better with music...


@ doosh: I think that Marcel is as free as anyone else in this forum to submit an opinion, no matter if it's positive or negative towards the band. Marcel has several times explained why he doesn't like Arjen's projects with strong arguements, and even when I don't agree with him, I respect his opinion.
Ruun - 20.06.2007 at 01:00  
Could it be Veronica Freeman from Benedictum? She also have a very powerful voice, but probably too powerful.

That was probably one of the most ignorant things I have ever witnessed. Dude you're a moderator....wow. That aside I am anxiously awaiting Ayreon's new album. The voice to me sounded like Eric Martin of Mr. Big, and it also sort of reminded me of Steve Perry from Journey.

Then I think he's finished with telling people that he don't like Ayreon, and he can just stay away from commenting theese news? Or at least he can show us his great arguments. I totally respect that he doesn't like Ayreon, but in the way he put it - and as a moderator! I just don't respect it. Yes of course moderators can post negative opinions towards bands, but as I've said some times now - not that way!

It will kick ass you'll see

PS: don't ask me how I got the names !

A hint maybe? Ehm... has anyone of them signed on any previous Ayreon/Arjenproject?

Arjen himself admitted that it was the lady from Beautiful Sin in the official forum. As I said, check my post

Hahah.. not alone there guys..
I don't understand it myself. One of those bands I keep trying to listen to and they just don't do anything for me. Human Equation is good, some of the others are just so pretentious. Arjen seems to have an endless supply of support from the Gods of European metal..
He creates really nice soundscapes though..
Aina works better i think.. for a supergroup kind of thing.
