Storm Corrosion is the long-discussed and highly anticipated collaboration between two of the modern progressive rock scene's most innovative and multi-talented artists: Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth and Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson. The special edition is limited to only 5K copies in the U.S. and contains the standard CD and Blu-ray with 5.1 mix of the entire record, 2 exclusive demo tracks, & 5 instrumental tracks
"It’s very hard to describe this music as it is so different from most things around right now (at least as far as I know)," said Wilson. "I said it was the 'opposite of metal' because I think a lot of people might have assumed from the two people involved that this would be some kind of progressive / metal thing, but in fact it’s quite a minimal album with a lot of space and beauty, orchestral and organic, hardly any drums and no distorted guitars – 'twisted beautiful' is the best way I can describe it."
"Some of the music on this record I think is the most beautiful music I have participated on ever,” adds Akerfeldt. “There's some magical sections on there. Musically I think we've created something earthy, a bit frightening, exhausting, profound and rather intense. All at the same time. I can safely say I don't know any other band or artist that sounds anything like Storm Corrosion. I guess that was also one of our goals, so to speak.”
