16:43 - Apothecary That was always my one issue with them too, flight, as good as everything else is. I think they're putting out a new album this year though, so I'm curious to see if that gets changed in any way
16:39 - flightoficarus Really digging Vattnet Viskar, except for the vocals. Too much distortion, not enough presence.
16:39 - Apothecary Damn, nobody had added Mr. Bungle until today? Glad that atrocity got cleared up

Two weeks ago, the following news was posted on the Ayreon website:
"There's not been much news from us lately, but don't let that fool you. There has been a bustle of feverish activity going on behind the scenes here at the Electric Castle. With this update from ArjenLucassen.com we're excited to officially announce the details of Arjen's new project, Guilt Machine.
The Line-up will be:
Arjen Lucassen: instruments, backing vocals
Jasper Steverlinck (Arid): vocals
Chris Maitland (ex-Porcupine Tree): drums
Lori Linstruth (ex-Stream Of Passion): lead guitar
As Ayreon fans have come to expect from Arjen, the music of Guilt Machine ranges from dark and heavy to atmospheric and melancholic. But Guilt Machine introduces some new twists as well, particularly when it comes to the vocals. Rather than putting together an ensemble cast of vocalists from the prog, rock and metal scene, Arjen has enlisted the talents of a single alternative Belgian rock vocalist, Jasper Steverlinck.
Currently halfway through the album... Not saying it's bad or anything, but I think I was expecting too much
"Green And Cream" sounds better out of the first three tracks, the previous two doesn't seem dynamic enough. I really hope I'm wrong though
on the other hand, vocalist is quite talented indeed and has succeeded in conveying a lot of emotion
