4th STAR ONE Contest Winner Announced
Congratulations Tony (from the USA), who will receive a free copy of Victims of the Modern Age for being the lucky winner drawn from those who correctly guessed “Planet of the Apes” as the movie that inspired Arjen’s lyrics in this video clip:
New STAR ONE Contest: GUESS THE MOVIE (Part 5)
While STAR ONE is not technically a rock opera like Ayreon, it is still very much a concept album. Rather than following continuous storyline, each song is based on a different sci-fi film and tells its own story. Lucassen describes the concept of “Victims Of The Modern Age” as follows: “I based the songs on dystopian and post-apocalyptic sci-fi movies that have made an impression on me throughout my life”. Unlike the first Star One album ‘Space Metal,’ where all the songs were set in space, this time most of the songs take place right here on Earth.
In the Youtube video linked to below, you’ll hear DAMIAN WILSON singing part of one of the tracks from Victims of the Modern Age. Your task is to guess the movie that inspired Arjen’s lyrics.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
The contest is OPEN FOR 24 HOURS. The winner will be selected at random from among those who have posted the correct answer.
