Beyond the Bridge

As CROMCarl noted previously, Beyond the Bridge's debut album (reviewed here) masterfully announces their arrival in the metal universe as a prospective heavyweight.

Storm Corrosion Signs With Roadrunner Records

Storm Corrosion, the collaboration project between Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt and Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson, has announced that it has signed on with Roadrunner Records. The label will release the duo's self-titled debut album on April 24th. The following press released was issued by Roadrunner Records.

"Roadrunner Records is pleased to announce the signing of Storm Corrosion.

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 pair will release Storm Corrosion on April 24 via Roadrunner Records.

Over the years, they’d often spoken of working on a project together, but it wasn’t until recently that they managed to make something happen, when Mikael flew over to visit Steven in the U.K. and they ended up in Wilson’s home studio throwing ideas around. That visit was the nascence of a whole self-titled album, written and produced by the pair, and mixed by Wilson. More...
