In early 2011, Steven Wilson recorded ‘Grace for Drowning’. Around the same time, Michael Åkerfeldt’s Opeth recorded ‘Heritage’ with engineering and mixing assistance from Wilson. Shortly thereafter, the two collaborated on a project called ‘Storm Corrosion’. Says Wilson of Storm Corrosion, "If you'd asked me three months ago about the music, I would have said, 'Expect the last thing you would expect.' But actually, now that ‘Heritage’ and ‘Grace for Drowning’ have come out, I don't think it's going to be that much of a shock to people, because it's almost like a third part of the trilogy, in a way. If anything, it's even more orchestral, even more stripped down, even more dark, twisted and melancholic . . . but it certainly feels like it comes from the same place as ‘Heritage’ and ‘Grace for Drowning’, which indeed it does because it was written during the same period.” ‘Åkerfeldt Wilson Synergy’ pulls material from all three albums and reconfigures it to harness the full spectrum of these related projects creating a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
