Steven Wilson, Mikael Akerfeldt Name New Project
Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson and Mikael Akerfeldt from Opeth have now finishing writing the songs for their new project Storm Corrosion.
Says Wilson: “There’s a lot of recording work to do, but this should definitely be out in early 2012.”
Of the style of music people can expect, Wilson continues:
“The one thing we didn’t wanna do is get together and do a prog metal supergroup, which would have been so easy to do — and kind of expected, in a way. And, you know, we might do that anyway one day. But this time around, we thought, ‘Let’s just do this (kind of) record’.
“Some people will love it and some people will not, and that’s OK, because, in a way, I don’t think we wanted to just give what was expected, and we’re certainly not doing that.”
