“DRAG ROPES”: FIRST SINGLE + VIDEO FROM STORM CORROSION IS AWESOME
Storm Corrosion, the new project from Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt and Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson, have released their first single and video in the form of “Drag Ropes.” As advertised, the music is not at all metal — but it is really, really cool. Make sure you give it a listen, even if you’re not the kind of person who is normally inclined to enjoy this sort of thing.
Bonus: The video, which features sparse-yet-haunting animation (and obeys my golden “keep the band outta it” rule!) is also totally sweet. Director/animator Jess Cope deserves a big round of applause for this one.
Storm Corrosion’s self-titled debut comes out May 8 on Roadrunner.
