Space Metal [Limited Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gary Hill
Star One is the latest project from Arjen Anthony Lucassen the man who almost single-handedly is Aryeon. Lucassen seems to like to assemble groups of musicians to record his works under various band names. Such is the case with this project. The group here has cut loose with their first project, entitled Space Metal.

Of course, the neo-symphonic modes for which Lucassen seems to have a fondness also appear. The result is an intriguing combo that seems a bit contrived and sterile at times, but certainly should please fans of the prog metal genre.
