Biography

London, UK / Stockholm, Sweden (2010 – present)

Storm Corrosion is the musical collaboration between Mikael Åkerfeldt (Opeth) and Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree). The project’s self-titled first studio album (released on May 7, 2012, through Roadrunner Records) has been described by Wilson as being “the final part in the odd trilogy of records completed by [Opeth’s] Heritage and Grace for Drowning”.

Mikael Åkerfeldt first became aware of Steven Wilson circa 1995-1996 after Åkerfeldt’s best friend Jonas Renkse played him the Porcupine Tree album The Sky Moves Sideways. Åkerfeldt instantly fell in love with the band and began collecting their work. Years later, Wilson e-mailed Åkerfeldt after being given a copy of the Opeth album Still Life by a French journalist. The two ended up meeting for dinner in London where Åkerfeldt asked Wilson to produce the next Opeth album. It was also during this dinner that the two first talked about a possible collaboration.

Wilson agreed to produce what would become Blackwater Park, Opeth’s fifth album. He later returned to produce two other Opeth albums – Deliverance and Damnation. He also mixed one Opeth album, Heritage. In 2005, Åkerfeldt contributed some guitar and vocals to Deadwing, Porcupine Tree’s eighth album.

    I admit this album is not for everyone but it grew on me like an aggressive fungus and it is a cerebral, thought-provoking masterpiece. The first cut, Drag Ropes, is sheer genius. [2]

    I admit this album is not for everyone but it grew on me like an agressive fungus and I can honestly say it is a cerebral, thought-provoking masterpiece. The first cut, Drag Ropes, is sheer genius.

    This kind of collab between Wilson and Åkerfeldt was a long time coming and I'm glad it finally happened when it did. I really need more of this [5].

    Pretty good album. High doubt Wilson and Akerfeldt would work on it again, especially with Steve being too busy these days.

    This project is very good,it gets a lot of unnecessary flack, but better than Opeth? Granted it's a bit unfair to compare the two, since they're vastly different from each other (pre Heritage material anyways). I do think Opeth is Åkerfeldt's crowning achievement, however.
