Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth and Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree have collaborated before, but Storm Corrosion is the product of their combined creativity. The music of the debut is ambient avant-folk with elements of jazz and symphonic music, and therefore rather different than the styles the duo have explored with their respective bands. Wilson concentrated on keyboards and arrangements, leaving Åkerfeldt to handle most of the guitar work. What sparse drumming appears on the album is there courtesy of Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, O.S.I., The Tangent).
Dream Corrosion is a 1994 live album by Gary Numan. It was recorded under the 1992/1993 Machine + Soul tour at the London's Hammersmith Apollo on 6 November 1993, and was originally released under the Numa Records label.
