Ambeon ~ Fate of a Dreamer

Ambeon

Astrid van der Veen

Ambeon is a “mysterious and ambient side project of Arjen Anthony Lucassen featuring Astrid van der Veen, a young and very talented female vocalist.”

Usually I let my music play in the background, but somewhere during the first song of this album I had to stop what I was doing and concentrate on listening… because it was so mesmerizing and beautiful… and sad. The music could be called Melodic Rock with some Progressive and Celtic elements mixed in. As a whole it’s rather gloomy, the lyrics being dark and cryptic. Anyway, here are two samples I found on the official site..
