AYREON mastermind Arjen Lucassen's webmaster has issued the following update:

"Arjen just finished recording the demos for his seventh Ayreon album. As previously reported, Arjen went through a difficult time last winter. Since then he's been doing a lot better. He discovered that music truly is the best medicine and also drew inspiration from the many encouraging e-mails, letters, and postcards he received from his fans.

Though Arjen initially planned to release a single album, the plan - as always - changed as the composing progressed. Like The Human Equation and Into The Electric Castle, the new Ayreon will be a double album featuring 15 tracks with a combined length of nearly 100 minutes.

Arjen and Ayreon-veteran Ed Warby (GOREFEST - pictured) will enter the studio next month to record drums together with producer Gordon Groothedde.

Arjen is currently checking the availability of vocalists and instrumentalists to see who can be scheduled to appear. A number of vocalists have already responded enthusiastically. Arjen has a long wish-list, and it promises to be quite a puzzle to figure out who will be singing where and what.

No release date has been set."
