Into The Electric Castle (Special Edition)
For the production of his Space Opera, one of the most well regarded Ayreon records, Arjen Lucassen invited a lot of high calibre vocalists into the studio: guests were among others Fish, Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering), Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation), and Ed Warby (Gorefest).
The theme: representatives of various eras are meeting in the Electric Castle, a structure built out of their own fears. They all are searching for the escape door into their own present. Musically a work of the best symphonic rock, especially for lovers of analogue synth sounds (Clive Nolan of Arena is responsible for the soli) it's a feast.
This special edition contains a 26 page booklet with new editorial by Arjen Lucassen as well as a multi media part featuring interviews conducted with Lucassen.
