A neat video for a good song. Looking forward to the album.

Watched this first thing in the morning. Awesome sauce! Set an eery tone for the day, that's for sure. It's a good thing.

Brilliant song/video.
I like ominous and mysterious melodies/themes,
and this song definitely has lots of mysteries in it.
There's a great/unexpected change at 5:00, great harmonies there between vocals and instruments.
The conclusion is interesting too: "Now my dear friend..."

Waiting for the album,
thanks Unhealer.

I really dig the video, I keep watching it again and again. Probably one of the bests I've seen in a long time.
I love how it goes with the song, which is awesome as well.

Sounds shitty, opeth x2 times slowlyafa

Very interesting, was expecting something on the soft side from these two working together. But kind of weird they chose the name Storm Corrosion, which at least to me invokes images of destruction and loud thundering sounds, for something so soft spoken and exactly the opposite of what the name suggests; me thinks they should choose something else for the name if the whole album is like this. It is definitely good though, and I am looking forward to hearing more...

....enjoyed it.

What a fucking piece of shit.

This is probably one of those cases where musicians associated with metal do non metal music and people talk about how unique and interesting it is, even though it's sub par in the actual genre that it is

actually "Corrosion" from a metallurgical point of view , usually takes a long time to destroy the material ...
I think the corrosion part happens after the storm , when everything is wet and "slowly" breaking down . ( it happens mostly to metals though )

so I don't think you are picturing the right image .

Well Porcupine Tree has never really been metal and Opeth is hardly considered that anymore... not sure that is the case here. Everyone will probably hate this. It is fairly unique music, at least from an expectations standpoint. But it's far from interesting (which may have been the intention ~*who knows what these muzak dudes think anymore*), it really challenges you to stay focused on listening. I've been listening to it more as a background/ambiance when winding down in my pajamas and tucking in my stuffed animals. Goodnight Mikael *kisses poster*.

I'm still processing, will be back later.

You beat me to it. I was going to say that Storm Corrosion makes me think of "erosion", a form of weathering that takes place over many years.

This record is really good for a sleep and for ambiance. I'd have to try a dedicated listen to see if it's actually boring.

This is Lulu for all the prog fans. Storm Corrosion sounds about right, because this song is about as interesting as waiting for that to happen.

So far this had a FAR better response than Lulu.

Indeed; more than three people like it already.

I was talking about the music. Collaboration between two big names, boring instrumentation and some mumbling vocals. Of course, considering who's involved it'll probably get's 10's across the board.

Do you even like music? Every post you have made is negative... that's usually a good sign that someone is trolling again...

but in this album's case I would agree with you.

I like music just fine, I just tend to post about shit I don't like rather than join the circle jerk and high five parties. Weird way to go about it, but oh well.

Mikael and Steven continue on the downward spiral of producing absolute shit and making money from it! This is rubbish!
Jeeers - 26.04.2012 at 00:26  
A suprisingly good artistic video (good in a bad way... ) for suprisingly boring track.
Mikael can do better than this ... it's not bad, just nothing really happens
Anyway ... I'm kinda ... exited.
PocketMetal - 26.04.2012 at 15:16  
I know it can be ultra boring for some people , but I actually liked the album ...
they could do a much better thing together but this is not bad . surprisingly I'm not not disappointed !
Azarath - 26.04.2012 at 19:38  
I quite like it, but the song seems to build towards something that never arrives.
F.N.S.C.A.C - 28.04.2012 at 00:00  
Not gna lie, I was completely underwhelmed by this. Of course it was going to be something different but I only really enjoyed about a minute of the actual song. If I hadn't listened to this then I probably would have picked up the along with everyone else but now I'm not so sure I'll bother..

Fair enough, very true. Lol, I was definitely thinking about it from the wrong angle.
