Arjen Lucassen's Guilt Machine

Biography

Arjen Lucassen has never been afraid to follow his instincts. He's always allowed his creativity to guide him, never worrying about the possible consequences. This was already evident during the 1980’s, when he was a member of the successful Dutch hard rock band Vengeance. It became even clearer in the decade that followed, when he embarked on a series of rock operas under the Ayreon moniker. Much to everyone's surprise (including his own), each epic rock opera that Arjen has unleashed upon the world has become an international success. His work with Ayreon has also inspired an entire new generation of composers to bring the art form of the rock opera back to life.
