In 2002 well-known for his albums by the progressive rock project Ayreon, Space Metal is an exciting project from one of rock's great visionaries, Arjen Lucassen. With it's stellar musicianship, visionary production and a simple yet far-reaching concept, Space Metal shines bright as a giant sun in the galaxy of rock. Space Metal isn't a continuous story or a rock opera like the Ayreon albums. Yet it is still very much a concept album and a journey through Arjen's mind and memory. He takes the listener on a trip where they relive those great science fiction space films that made such an impact on him. Gatefold vinyl 2LP+2CD-set.
