Listen to remix from upcoming deluxe re-issue of Ayreon’s Into The Electric Castle
The 20th anniversary edition of Ayreon’s progressive rock space opera “Into The Electric Castle” will be released on October 28th on Music Theories Recordings/Mascot Label Group.
You can listen to the new remix of “Across The Rainbow Bridge” HERE.
Arjen Lucassen on the video: ”In honor of the 20th anniversary re-release of ‘Into The Electric Castle’ we proudly present you this cool lyric video for the newly mixed version of ‘Across the Rainbow Bridge’! It’s created once again by the amazing Wayne Joyner, I think it really captures the right mood. Hope you enjoy it too, despite that weird Hippie-dude :-)”
Released in 1998, the original album was the third under the name Ayreon from the Dutch multi-instrumentalist who started his career in the bands Bodine and Vengeance. Arjen Lucassen himself has now re-mixed the audio of the album to 21st century standards, saying “Remastering takes 2 hours, this remix took me 2 months!”
The re-release will be available as 3LP, 5-disc Earbook and Limited Edition Box Set. Pre-orders will be signed by Arjen. In addition to an expansive photo book with new liner notes, the Earbook has 5 discs. Disc 1 and 2 have the 20th Anniversary remixed audio, disc 3 and 4 have instrumental (or karaoke…) versions of the remixed audio, and disc 5 (DVD) has the entire album in glorious, over-the-top-with-spacey-soundeffects 5.1 surround audio and bonus video material.
