New Ayreon album called Transitus is inbound with a lot of guests already announced. It's already been three years since the last Ayreon release which was voted number one album for 2017 on MMA. I'm very hyped for this one. 

Vocalists Announced So Far:

Tom Baker (Doctor Who) as The Narrator
Tommy Karevik (Kamelot, Seventh Wonder) as Daniel
Cammie Gilbert (Oceans of Slumber) as Abby
Micheal Mills (Toehider) as The Statue
Amanda Somerville (ex-Aina, Trillium) as Lavinia
Paul Manzi (Arena) as Henry
Dianne van Giersbergen (Ex Libris, ex-Xandria) as The Soprano
Johanne James (Threshold) as Abby's father Abraham
Simone Simons (Epica) as The Angel of Death
Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) as Daniel's Father

Guest Guitarist:

Joe Satriani

Looks like Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) is the next to be announced, based on guesses for the new guessing game Arjen put up today (and yeah, it does sound like him, to me.) The concept of this one seems quite intriguing, as always, and the clips have been fantastic. Then again, if it's an Ayreon album, it could be about just about anything and it would instantly become my most anticipated album for the year.

Can't say the artwork does anything for me.



Pretty boring actually for an Ayreon cover.

There's a 7 minute trailer out for it:
 

Looks utterly mindblowing, as usual for Ayreon!

Arjen sure knows her to make a trailer. 

Getting some real gothic horror vibes off of the narrated bit with Tom Baker. 

Quite surprised to see the drums are not actually by Ed Warby. Have to change that on the MMA entry. Think there's a couple of names in there that haven't been included yet too. 

I also never realised how good a singer Threshold's drummer was.
