Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth and Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree, the two men who make up Storm Corrosion, sat down for a lengthy interview to discuss the project in detail. In this exclusive clip, they discuss why Storm Corrosion is not a supergroup, and why former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, who had been rumored at one point to be part of the project, is not a member. They also talk about the actual sound of the record, and how they deliberately chose to avoid traditional rock rhythms, and Mikael tells the story of the cover art.
Storm Corrosion, the album, is now available for pre-order in two deluxe configurations: the Special Edition Blu-Ray/CD Set & Collector’s Edition Double LP Bundle is $50, and includes the album on 180 gram black virgin vinyl, in a gatefold jacket with exclusive artwork; a digital download of the entire album in high quality FLAC files; the Blu-Ray/CD version of the record, which offers the album on CD; a Blu-Ray disc containing a 5.1 audio mix of the entire album, two exclusive demo tracks, and five instrumental tracks; a 24" x 36" fold-out poster; and a separate 12" x 12" poster autographed by both Mikael Åkerfeldt and Steven Wilson.
The Storm Corrosion Collector’s Edition Double-LP Set is $35, and includes the vinyl version, the digital download, and the two posters.
