I wasn’t a tremendous fan of Storm Corrosion’s first disc, even though the band, on paper, is something I should appreciate immensely.

Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth working with Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson on prog bliss?

Surely, I would enjoy that, everyone figured.

But nope…I really didn’t. Maybe I need to revisit that record, but it left me disappointed.

Perhaps a second album from the band would be an improvement and I’d fall in love with Storm Corrosion properly.

But for now, my hopes remain low.

Barbara Caserta of Italy’s Linearock recently conducted an interview with Åkerfeldt and he was asked about a second disc from Storm Corrosion.

He said:

“Well, we talked about doing another [album] a couple of times, but I think it has to be a timing thing, because I’m busy and he’s busy. It has to be something natural. I’d like to do another record under the same premises as we did the first one, where there was no expectations and nobody really knew that we were doing it, not even the record labels and stuff like that. So we just did this album, just doing music that we… One of our connective points when it comes to music that we like but that we haven’t really experimented too much with was that type of ambient, kind of droney sound, almost ‘sountrack-y’ music.

“But I’m not sure if that’s our style. So I don’t know how it’s gonna look in the future. But if we do something, it has to be, like I said, under the same premises as we did the first record.”
