Is this the third time the release date has been pushed back??? At some point this kind of thing just becomes taunting.

Untold numbers of Wilson and Ackerfeldt fans are holding their breath right now. Both artists have gone on record saying that the album will purposefully not be what is popularly expected of them. Also, Wilson and Ackerfeldt mention the Storm Corrosion album was made in the same breath as "Grace For Drowning" and "Heritage", meaning the sessions and thus the mindsets of those albums will have at least a vague imprint on this release as well.

"Storm Corrosion" is supposedly dark, anxious, melancholy and experimental but will have both of their trademark styles without being too Porcupine Tree/Opeth. Very "not metal" has been repeated emphatically and references to obscure acts they are fond of abound in the early press info. All that said, I'm a big fan of both musicians and go into their new release with open mind and irrepressibly high expectations.
