Ayreon - "Into The Electric Castle" (album trailer)

Το trailer του δίσκου των Ayreon "Into The Electric Castle"
Τον Arjen Anthony Lucassen τον έμαθα ως τον κιθαρίστα των Vengeance ακούγοντας τους δίσκους "Take It or Leave It" - "Arabia" (αργότερα άκουσα και τα προγενέστερα albums). Την δεκαετία του ενενήντα δημιούργησε το project των Ayreon όπου ο πυρήνας της μπάντας ήταν ο ίδιος και ο Ed Warby. Τους υπόλοιπους "ρόλους" κάλυπταν προσκεκλημένοι μουσικοί.

Το πρώτο album των Ayreon που άκουσα (κι αγόρασα) ήταν το "Into the Electric Castle". Διπλό cd, concept δίσκος με δέκα προσκεκλημένους μουσικούς και εννέα τραγουδιστές. Στα τέλη Αυγούστου συμπληρώθηκαν είκοσι χρόνια από την (αρχική) ημερομηνία κυκλοφορίας του και ο Arjen υποσχέθηκε επετειακή επανακυκλοφορία, η οποία αναμένεται στα τέλη του μήνα...

Arjen: «Although my first Ayreon album, The Final Experiment released in 1995, was an (unexpected) success, my second album, Actual Fantasy, wasn’t received with the same enthusiasm. So I had to make sure that my third release would be absolutely mind-blowing, otherwise it could well have meant the end of Ayreon!" (narrator: It wasn't the end)

The audio on the vinyl will be the original 1998 mix that we already re-issued on CD. The records are packaged in a triple gatefold. A downloadcard for a complimentary MP3 download of the new 2018 audio remix is included. Arjen made it clear that it's a 'remix', not a 'remaster', saying "Remastering takes 2 hours, this remix took me 2 months!»
