I am still looking for what the Dutch are not masters into...  CHeese, meadows, flowers, intelligence, pod, hot girls and , of course, High quality Prog Metal! :-)

I am just sorry that Arjen did not went to a "happier"phase as in - Come back to Me - in which that keyboards run on our minds over and over.,,

I especially like her work with Heavy Devy and 'The Gathering.'
She has R-A-N-G-E baby!!
Threshold still have all the goods that makes them one of the best classic rock/Prog metal bands in the world. 2014's For The Journey is worth a serious listen.

As some of you may have already heard, Arjen's former manager Yvette Boertje is adapting 'The Human Equation' for the theater! There will be three shows in September 2015 in the Netherlands, featuring many musicians from the original cast. Arjen won’t be performing himself (being a recluse and all that), but he will be involved behind the scenes as an advisor. Check www.facebook.com/thetheaterequation or www.thetheaterequation.com for more information.

Arjen’s collaboration with Anneke van Giersbergen will be called The Gentle Storm. The album is planned for release in early 2015.

 The Gentle Storm sign deal with InsideOutMusic

Arjen likes to say that his touring days are over, but he’s helped Anneke form a stellar band for live dates in support of the album. You can find out more at your favorite social media pitstop:

They have signed a deal with InsideOutMusic for the release of their debut album early next year. Arjen comments: "We are thrilled to be able to strengthen our relationship with InsideOut Music as The Gentle Storm's label." Anneke adds: "We're in the middle of recording these amazing new songs and are very excited the label shows an equal amount of faith in this release. We can't wait for people to hear it and are happy this superb team will help us spread the word."
 
Having originally worked together back in 1998 on Ayreon's album 'Into The Electric Castle', and reconvening again for the seventh Ayreon album '01011001', The Gentle Storm sees the duo collaborate for a full double-album that will see the light of day next year. Anneke will also take the music on the road in 2015, backed by a band of Dutch musicians; however Arjen himself will not take part.
 
Arjen Lucassen recently picked up the Virtuoso award at this year's Progressive Music Awards, in front of an audience that included Peter Gabriel & Rick Wakeman amongst other progressive rock legends. Last year saw the release of the latest album from his Ayreon project entitled 'The Theory Of Everything' which featured guest appearances from the aforementioned Wakeman as well as Steve Hackett and Keith Emerson.
 
Anneke Van Giersbergen has also had an extremely busy 12 months following the release of her latest solo album 'Drive', playing live across the world with her solo band, Devin Townsend Project, and with Daniel Cavanagh of Anathema. She will also be playing a special anniversary show with former band The Gathering in November as well has having taken part in Devin Townsend's forthcoming new album Z².

However, I think I read about this album that it will not be exactly a full double album. It will rather be the same music played twice, in one CD there will be a sort of acoustic folksy version of the album, and on the other there will be a full metal symphonic album.
