The 20th Anniversary Edition of 'Into The Electric Castle' - New audio remix



It was 20 years ago today, when Arjen Lucassen taught the band to play... Into the Electric Castle.

Here's the collector's item to end all collector's items. This is one of the coolest items we have ever released: A box set of Into The Electric Castle with a 3D-version of the cover, 4 CDs, 1 DVD and 3 LPs on exclusive gold marbled vinyl. The gold marbled vinyl is only available in this box, and won't be available separately.

After The Final Experiment and Actual Fantasy (Revisited), it's time for part 3 in the Ayreon-on-vinyl saga. Original vinyl copies of Into The Electric Castle are fetching a small fortune, and it is by far one of our most requested titles for a vinyl release. Coincidentally, it's also the 20th anniversary since it was first release, so let's kick off this milestone, shall we?

For the 20th anniversary, Arjen remixed the audio to 21st century standards. He made it clear that it's a 'remix', not a 'remaster', saying "Remastering takes 2 hours, this remix took me 2 months!".

This is a one-time pressing of just 1500 copies. Production time will be longer than the regular vinyl and the 5-disc Earbook, so if you order this box set together with other items, we will ship your complete order around the end of November. Pre-order now, or miss out on this amazing item!

The 20th Anniversary Limited Edition Box Set contains:
  • 3D-sculpted and framed Electric Castle
  • 4 CDs: 20th Anniversary Remix + 20th Anniversary Remix Instrumentals
  • 1 DVD: 20th Anniversary 5.1 Remix + Documentaries
  • 3 LPs: Gold marbled vinyl (original mix) + Download card for the 20th Anniversary Remix
  • Certificate of authenticity, signed by Arjen
