Akerfeldt/Wilson Collaborate
2011-09-26 by Jeremy Bentham | 65 Comments

Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth and Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree have finally released details regarding their musical collaboration. The following was posted on Opeth's facebook:

The long awaited collaboration between Mikael Akerfeldt and Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) is finally being completed. The project goes under the name of 'Storm Corrosion' and will have a self-titled record out in April 2012 through a yet unnamed label. This album could be seen as the final part in the odd trilogy of records completed by "Heritage" and Steven Wilson's brand new solo album "Grace for Drowning".

The original Storm Corrosion consisted of Akerfeldt, Wilson and Portnoy, but I think Portnoy dropped out. Hopefully Marco Minneman provided drums for the album seeing as he is friends with Wilson. This will be good nevertheless.

Was Portnoy not originally apart of this concept? What happened to his inclusion?

Name sounds in similar vein to "Liquid Tension Experiment". Ehh.
