16/11/14 – Storm Corrosion – Drag Ropes – 2012

Video Of The Day

Storm Corrosion Drag Ropes Still 2012Storm Corrosion was/is a collaboration between Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson and Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt. Wilson had collaborated with Opeth previously, producing and playing on their albums, Blackwater Park, Deliverance and Damnation.

This creepy animation is ‘executed’ in the style of  Steven Wilson video’s from his last solo album The Raven That Refused To Sing – the animator is Jess Cope. It continues on the theme of dark fantasy over a crystal clear production highlighting an intertwining progressive extravaganza. There’s parts of this song that remind me of Radiohead and although everyone talked of Progressive Rock when OK Computer was released, Radiohead came to a fork in the road that said Progressive or Electronic? This might have been what they sounded like if they had taken the other option.

Link below to a conversation with Jess Cope and Mikael Åkerfeldt about the video.
