‘s new self-titled album is out now and just in case you need convincing of it’s awesomeness, check out some reviews of the album below:

By contrast ‘Storm Corrosion’ is all the stronger for being far from that. It isn’t really validly comparable to anything most fans of either artist will be familiar with but signals that they are both still worthy of being highly regarded as creative forces.

This is experimental music at its very best and, although most listeners are more likely to be puzzled than entertained by it, ‘Storm Corrosion’ is clearly one of the finest records that 2012 will bring.

The entire album is a mixture of staggering beauty, soft fear and odd noise, delivered in the most subtle of fashions, and able to take you through a quite terrifying gamut of emotions without ever needing to enter the territories we’re more familiar with from these musicians. Storm Corrosion is a masterpiece in its own right, without reservation or caveat. It’s layered and textured with a mind-boggling level of skill, and makes you need to stiffen your quavering bottom lip and dab your damp eye more often than you’ll ever admit in public.

It’s not Opeth. It’s not Porcupine Tree. It’s Storm Corrosion. And it’s wonderful. 5.5/6

While many of the musical devices employed are nothing new for either party, Storm Corrosion takes on an atmosphere completely removed from its sibling endeavors. The album plays out like a fantastical dream, sometimes foreboding and sinister but always beautiful and mystifying. “Ljudet Innan” closes things out with some soulful crooning from Akerfeldt before droning on in a tranquil sea of synth and eventually returning to a bit of light percussion, bluesy guitar licks, and some similarly soulful pining from Wilson. The lush and lilting vocal melodies induce such peculiar wonderment, often tearing away at the aperture separating soothing from haunting, while overarching synths, strings, and distorted vocal backdrops serve to erect the towering weightlessness of the captivating reverie.
