If, by now, you’ve remained unaware of what Storm Corrosion is, allow me to fill you in.
Storm Corrosion is both the name of a band and the name of that band’s forthcoming debut studio set.
The band features Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth with Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson. And the album is supposed to sound nothing like any of us is probably imagining.
Today, we learned that that image will serve as the cover to Storm Corrosion and the the LP will boast six songs…all of them, long as hell.
The album will be available in numerous forms. There’s gonna be a “Special Edition” that comes with a Blu-ray, chock full of extras.
A Collector’s Edition Double LP set is $35, and includes the album on 180-gram black virgin vinyl, in a gatefold jacket with exclusive artwork; a digital download of the entire album in high-quality FLAC files.
The Blu-ray/CD version of the record for $50 offers the album on CD; a Blu-ray disc containing a 5.1 audio mix of the entire album, two exclusive demo tracks, and five instrumental tracks; a 24″ x 36″ fold-out poster; and a separate 12″ x 12″ poster autographed by both Mikael Åkerfeldt and Steven Wilson.
