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 Åkerfeldt 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 Åkerfeldt. "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."

However, you can definitely hear both of the legendary artists' influences in every song, rather equally over the whole of the album.
The music is ambient at times and the guitar is acoustic. There's really no sense in trying to describe the album, in depth, as it really has to be listened to. Storm Corrosion, is subtly amazing.
You are going to have to listen to each song several times to fully appreciate this work of art, (like all good music).
If you're a fan of either artist, this is a must have. If only because you will be listening to something very original, both alike but also very unlike other projects these artists have done.
Melancholy, wistful music for early mornings or rainy days - this album must have flown off the shelves in the Pacific Northwest.
I can't choose a favorite song. I find them all to be equally intriguing. If you are interested in listening to some atmospheric music with a grim edge to it, then this is your album. Pick up a copy and give it a few spins; you won't be disappointed.
Bottom line is that if you enjoy this record, the best presentation of it is on vinyl. Well, I haven't heard the 5.1 DVD, but these LPs sound absolutely fantastic.
I hope they return in the future with another collaboration.
