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

"For a limited time only we've put up a 10-minute demo track [from the upcoming AYREON album] here for which vocals have not yet been recorded. Ben Mathot of the band DIS plays violin on this track. Ed Warby [GOREFEST], as always, plays drums. This demo will be deleted in a few days, never to be heard again, so check it out now!

"The third vocalist to be featured on the new AYREON has been announced: Ty Tabor (KING'S X). Magali Luyten (VIRUS IV) and Simone Simons (EPICA) were announced earlier. In total 13 vocalists have been confirmed, with more to be added."

AYREON's last CD, "Ayreon: The Human Equation", was released in 2004. It contained guest appearances by a number of acclaimed vocalists, including James LaBrie (DREAM THEATER), Mike Baker (SHADOW GALLERY), Mikael Ã…kerfeldt (OPETH), Eric Clayton (SAVIOUR MACHINE), Devon Graves (DEADSOUL TRIBE, ex-PSYCHOTIC WALTZ) and Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD).
