Thomas Ewerhard : Layout. Into the Electric Castle: A Space Opera Lists. 1). Top 25 Progressive Metal Albums of All Time (Loudwire). Progressive Metal씬을 대표하는 장인 Arjen Anthony Lucassen은 마술 같은 완성도를 지닌 걸작들을 연이어 발표하는 것으로 유명하다. 가 이렇게 명반행진을 본격적으로 시작한 것은 Ayreon이라는 이름으로 발표한 세 번째 앨범 Into the Electric Castle부터이다. Ayreon의 작품들은 거의 대부분의 디스코그라피가 높은 평가를 받는데, 그중에서도 가장 후한 평가를 받고 있는 작품은 The Human Equation이다.

Into the Electric Castle (also known as Into the Electric Castle - A Space Opera) is the third album of the progressive metal project Ayreon by Dutch songwriter, producer, singer, and t Arjen Anthony Lucassen, released in 1998. Being a concept album as is every Ayreon album, it tells a science fiction story with exaggerated, flamboyant characters influenced by B-grade science fiction movies

Ayreon - into the electric CASTLE-20TH anniv. 3LP+MP3) 180G 3 vinyl lp+MP3 new+. AYREON limited original black Vinyl 3LP Set Into The Electric Castle (2011). He composes a Rock Opera and then like the mice followed the Pied Piper into the river, several well known, at least to me, guest singers and musicians follow our piperish leader, Arjen, into the studio to record, this wonderful music. Now Arjen hasn't used this successful formula once or twice. No he's made eight exciting albums this way, two of which are double albums. 'Into the Electric Castle' is a double CD. On disc 1 we experience the journey to The Electric Castle and on disc 2 we find out what happens when they arrive there. Haven't I read something by Stephen King like that.

Into the Electric Castle is an epic prog rock opera from Dutch guitarist Arjen Lucassen. The sci-fi story centers around eight strangers brought together into a dimension of no space and no time. The characters in the story are played by varying lead singers, including former Marillion frontman Fish. The supporting cast is a who's who of proggers, which translates into superb musicianship. The story is standard sci-fi fare, but winds up being quite effective with the accompanying score. The massive coordination of such a large project is admirable, but to pull it off with such impressive.
