Ayreon Transitus. The new album in 2020

| Transitus is the new Ayreon album in 2020 by the mastermind of Arjen Lucassen (founder of Stream of Passion). It’s a rock opera based on a gothic ghost story in the 19th century.

| As a fun fact, the story is narrated by Tom Baker, from the famous series Doctor Who. Marcela Bovio from Stream of Passion is part of it as well.

2 CDs plus a comic book (which you can download here) to tell the story of Abby and Daniel. It’s a perfect record for those who love this genre.

Trembol | Why Stream of Passion heavy metal fusion is so good?

I still remember in 2006 when i was a trainee and a colleague, who is a Heavy Metal passionate, told me about Stream of Passion. I was lucky enough that, just that year, they published “Out In The Real World”.

The song has lived in my head ever since, and now that I have decided to analyze it in depth, to share it with you, I know the reason why.

In the Heavy Metal world there are many songs sung by lyrical voices, accompanied by very powerful guitars. What sets this song apart is the fusion: The unrivaled progressive metal of Northern Europe, brought by the group’s founder, the Dutchman Arjen Lucassen, along with the Latin passion of the Mexican singer, Marcela Bovio.

By the way, in order to be precise, although Stream of Passion can be considered as a Progressive Metal band (specially in their latest albums), “Out In The Real World” is Gothic Symphonic Metal. I confess it, it’s my favourite.

Not everything could be good news, so let me tell you that the band broke up in 2016, after an 11-year career.

This song will live in your memory for a long time, as it has happened to me, so make up some space for it and turn to it when you need that touch of PURE ENERGY!


Marcela Bovio explains when Arjen Lucassen proposed her to take a leading part in Stream of Passion:


In the beginning I was a bit stressed! He gave me a lot of opportunity to collaborate in a big part with the writing of the songs, which is a great honor but also felt like a big responsibility to me.

We both didn’t know what to expect in the beginning, but things just started happening and ideas began to flow; we both got more and more excited with the way the songs began to evolve, and we ended up sharing a lot of wonderful moments with the band.


¡Al principio estaba un poco estresada! Él me dio la oportunidad de colaborar en una gran parte, con la escritura de las canciones, lo cual fue un gran honor, pero a la vez una gran responsabilidad.

Ninguno sabíamos que esperar al principio, pero las cosas simplemente empezaron y las ideas fluyeron; Ambos nos emocionamos más y más con la manera de evolucionar de las canciones, y terminamos compartiendo un montón de momentos maravillosos en la banda.

This is what it says | Lyrics and Spanish Translation of Stream of Passion, Out in the Real World

Arjen and Marcela in Stream of Passion, beastly Heavy Metal


(Out the real world You are waiting to take my hand I’ll be looking for answer That leads me back) I’ve hidden wishes for so long Buried deep inside, Keeping them secret from a world That’ll never realize The way I dream Puedo ver esos ríos de luz [I can see those rivers of light] escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía [Flee from my skin, to fantasy]
Out the real world You are waiting to take my hand I’ll be looking for answer That leads me back
I lack the will to face my fears I’m running from it all And all the painful memories They haunt me once again I’m giving up…
Out in the real world You are waiting to hear my call, Through a river of illusions You saw me fall Out in the real world You are waiting to take my hand I’ll be looking for answer That leads me back
Outside, back in your arms
Out in the real world, you are waiting to hear my call. (Puedo ver esos ríos de luz) Through a river of illusions, you saw me fall (escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía) Out in the real world, you are waiting to take my hand (Hay en mí tanto temor) [There is so much fear in me] I’ll be looking for an answer that leads me back (Tanto mal que ocultar) [So much evil to hide]
Stream of Passion Lyrics


(Afuera en el mundo real
tú me esperas para tomar mi mano,
estaré buscando una respuesta
que me guíe de vuelta…)

He escondido deseos por tanto tiempo,
enterrados muy adentro,
ocultándolos de un mundo
que nunca se dará cuenta
de cómo sueño.

Puedo ver esos ríos de luz
escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía

Afuera en el mundo real
tú me esperas para tomar mi mano,
estaré buscando una respuesta
que me guíe de vuelta

Me falta la voluntad para enfrentar mis miedos,
huyo de todo ello.
Y todos los dolorosos recuerdos,
me persiguen una vez más.
Me rindo…

Afuera en el mundo real
tú esperas mi llamada.
A través de un río de ilusiones
me viste caer.

Afuera en el mundo real
tú me esperas para tomar mi mano,
estaré buscando una respuesta
que me guíe de vuelta

Afuera, de nuevo en tus brazos.

Afuera en el mundo real, tú esperas mi llamada.
(Puedo ver esos ríos de luz)
A través de un río de ilusiones, me viste caer
(escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía)
Afuera en el mundo real, tú me esperas para tomar mi mano,
(Hay en mí tanto temor)
estaré buscando una respuesta, que me guíe de vuelta
(Tanto mal que ocultar)

Arjen Lucassen musical projects



It is Arjen’s first band, after his first solo album and his early steps with Bodine and Vengance. In Ayreon, he simply makes the music he loves, without categories or genres. Tends to Rock Opera style.



It’s a side project to Ayreon with the singer, Astrid van der Veen, who was 14 years old in 2001, when it was recorded. It focuses on ambient instrumental sounds and with the warm touch of Astrid’s vocals.

Star One


As a reaction to Ambeon’s soft sound, Arjen decided to create this metal project, which already has 2 published records. It includes great voices, such as Floor Jansen, the lead singer of our beloved Nightwish.

Guilt Machine


In 2009 Arjen started another side project with the Belgian singer, Jasper Steverlinck. Lyrics came by her partner and ex-Stream of Passion guitarist, Lori Linstruth. It is as dark and metal as melodic.



Arjen has so many projects that is overwhelming. In 2011 he published another solo album, called “Lost in The Real World”. In 2015 he formed The Gentle Storm, along with the singer, Anneke van Giersbergen; and in 2020 he released with Ayreon, “Transitus”. As you can imagine, our favourite is still Stream of Passion with Marcela.
