Ambeon is one of the many projects of the Dutch musician Arjen Anthony Lucassen. Featuring the vocals of Astrid van der Veen, Ambeon's atmospheric sound draws from a wide variety of influences, including Celtic, gothic and progressive music. The songs on Ambeon's album are mostly composed of different remixed pieces of songs from Ayreon albums. The lyrics are original, and were written by van der Veen; their first and only album, to date, was recorded when she was just 14 years old.
The name Ambeon is a Portmanteau; the words Ambient and Ayreon are put together to form the name Ambeon. As the music of the tracks, sans vocals, are based on previous Ayreon songs, it could be said that this band is Ambient Ayreon.Ambeon is a mixture of Ambient-Metal and Alternative.
