Two weeks ago, the following news was posted on the Ayreon website:

"There's not been much news from us lately, but don't let that fool you. There has been a bustle of feverish activity going on behind the scenes here at the Electric Castle. With this update from ArjenLucassen.com we're excited to officially announce the details of Arjen's new project, Guilt Machine.

The Line-up will be:

Arjen Lucassen: instruments, backing vocals
Jasper Steverlinck (Arid): vocals
Chris Maitland (ex-Porcupine Tree): drums
Lori Linstruth (ex-Stream Of Passion): lead guitar

As Ayreon fans have come to expect from Arjen, the music of Guilt Machine ranges from dark and heavy to atmospheric and melancholic. But Guilt Machine introduces some new twists as well, particularly when it comes to the vocals. Rather than putting together an ensemble cast of vocalists from the prog, rock and metal scene, Arjen has enlisted the talents of a single alternative Belgian rock vocalist, Jasper Steverlinck.

For more details and comments, read here.

Nice one. There has yet to come a record of Arjen to disappoint me.
pleasure.seeker - 09.03.2009 at 16:59  
I'm really looking forward :-).

The singer sounds a bit "coldplayish", IMHO. We'll se what will Arjen make of him.

If it's got anything to do with Arjen then it'll be good. Looking forward to it.

This sounds awesome, I love Chris Maitlands drumming, and also all I've heard from Lori's guitar work (SoP) And as mentioned, Arjen can't do wrong! I also like the first name of the singer

Sounds interesting to me! I'm looking forward to it

It's almost like mine
I agree, and I really look forward to it!

That Jasper Steverlinck has an awesome voice, but I hope he won't get a bit boring for an entire album though if there isn't any other vocalist...

Like with anything Arjen does though, I'll definitely get this when it's out and hope for something as awesome as 01011001 and Star One (although it'll surely be very different )

You can listen to a song with him on vocals here by the way:

Lol Arjen finally managed to get someone (used to be) from Porcupine Tree to play in his project

Didn't Steven Wilson already play on one or two of Arjen's projects.

You're probably confusing him with Damian Wilson who was on both Ayreon and Star One

The mad musician is at it again i see...

Coudl be I am confusing the two. But who cares? This will be another yawn inducing boring Lucassen project for me I am sure.

Currently halfway through the album... Not saying it's bad or anything, but I think I was expecting too much
"Green And Cream" sounds better out of the first three tracks, the previous two doesn't seem dynamic enough. I really hope I'm wrong though
on the other hand, vocalist is quite talented indeed and has succeeded in conveying a lot of emotion
