Arjen Lucassen and Anneke van Giersbergen – The Gentle Storm

In his 2013 release, The Theory of Everything, Arjen unveils a completely revamped conceptual universe for Ayreon. Gone are the complicated story lines featuring sci-fi, aliens and time-travel; in their place is a real-world drama set in the here and now.

Wrapping up the original Ayreon saga with 'Epilogue: The Memory Remains', a track on the 'Timeline' boxed set, Arjen took a creative hiatus from Ayreon to focus on other projects including Guilt Machine, Star One and his solo record 'Lost In New Real'. And yet something kept calling him back to Ayreon. Determined to revamp and revitalize the Ayreon universe, Arjen spent 18 months crafting a simpler yet by no means less extravagant new record. Summing up the new concept, Arjen explains, "it takes a look at the fine line between genius and madness, focussing on the conflicting desires of the characters and the consequences of following their passions. It's not science fiction, but a human story set in a science context."

The last copies of The Theory of Everything Artbook. Signed by Arjen!
