A collaboration between Opeth's Mikael Åkerfeldt and Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson, Storm Corrosion finds the two frontmen finally coming together to bring their creative might to bear on the music world.
While the two have been admirers of each other's work and collaborators in the past, with Wilson producing some of Opeth's best albums (Blackwater Park, Deliverance, Damnation) and Åkerfeldt occasionally contributing guitar on Porcupine Tree albums, it wasn't until 2010 that the two were able to begin working on original music as their new project. With neither songwriter wanting to dig too deeply into their past work for inspiration, the sound strays away from the metal world, taking it into more spacious, ambient waters than either of their main gigs. The pair signed on with Roadrunner in 2012 and released their self-titled debut through the label later that year. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
