Progressive Heavy Arjen Anthony Lucassen's Star One. Band's List Progressive Heavy Arjen Anthony Lucassen's Star One Space Metal.

Space Metal" is debut full-length studio album by Ayreon mainman Arjen Anthony Lucassen´s sci-fi progressive metal project Star One. The album was released through InsideOut Music in May 2002. The music on "Space Metal" is unmistakably in the sound and style of Arjen Anthony Lucassen. The man has a distinct sound and an original songwriting style which is recognisable regardless of project or band name. The music on "Space Metal" is inspired by seventies and eighties symphonic and epic heavy metal.

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. With a title like that, one might expect to hear a more hard-edged version of the space rock sounds of bands like Hawkwind. That is not, however, the case. Instead, Lucassen and his cohorts (Ed Warby, Sir Russel Allen, Damian Wilson, Dan Swano, Floor Jansen, and various guests).

Unless of course you happen to be Dutch progressive rock/metal auteur Arjen Anthony Lucassen, in which case you would have already musically explored the subject a number of times through the vehicle of your supergroup Ayreon. Star One is yet another one of his projects, in addition to Ayreon and Ambeon, and to date have released one studio album, the appropriately titled Space Metal
