Arjen Lucassen's latest release On This Perfect Day is the first album from his new project Guilt Machine. On this release, he departs from the over the top complexity of Ayreon in favor of the simplicity of a relatively small line-up. Rather than putting together an ensemble cast of vocalists, Arjen recruited Jasper Steverlinck , singer of the Belgian alternative rock band Arid, as the sole vocalist of Guilt Machine. The talents of Chris Matiland (ex-Porcupine Tree) were enlisted for the drum parts. Arjen's partner and manager Lori Linstruth supplied the guitar solos. The rest of the instruments were played by Arjen himself, who also sings backing vocals.
