More information: The Diary is the first album by symphonic metal / folk rock band The Gentle Storm, consisting of composer and guitarist Arjen Anthony Lucassen (Ayreon, Star One) and singer and lyricist Anneke van Giersbergen (ex- The Gathering, Devin Townsend Project).

A concept album about a love story set in the 17th century, The Diary is an epic production of Ayreon proportions, featuring two contrasting interpretations of the same songs, all composed specifically for The Gentle Storm: acoustic / folk arrangements (CD1 - Gentle) and a full-on metal assault (CD2 - Storm).
