One of my favourite artists/bands/projects!

Ayreon is the main project from Dutch multi-instrumentalist Arjen Anthony Lucassen. He makes rock operas, often concept albums with science fiction stories which feature many guest vocalists, both male and female, but also guest instrumentalists. He himself writes all the music, plays guitars, bass, keyboards and organs.

Some of the guest vocalists over the years:

James LaBrie (Dream Theater)
Andi Deris (Helloween)
Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth)

Jörn Lande (Masterplan)
Barry Hay (Golden Earring)
Russell Allen (Symphony X)
Floor Janssen (After Forever)
Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation)
Fish (Marillion)
Daniel Gildenlöw (Pain of Salvation)
Damien Wilson (Threshold)
Devin Townsend (o.a. Strapping Young Lad)
Johan Edlund (Tiamat)
Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering)
Jonas Renkse (Katatonia)
Neal Morse (Spock's Beard)
Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear)

Steve Lee (Gotthard)
Bob Catley (Magnum)
