Acclaimed for his work with Porcupine Tree, Opeth and Anja Garbarek, amongst others, Insurgentes is Steven Wilson?s debut album. Comprising 10 new tracks that range from ballads and anthems to all-out industrial noise assaults, the dark, cinematic, and richly textured disc represents two years? worth of creative output and numerous recording sessions worldwide in studios from Mexico City to Japan and Israel.
While Wilson is a member of several bands, including Blackfield, No-Man, and Bass Communion, he explains that ?when I began writing these songs, I quickly realized that they would be best suited to an album under my own name. It was an intuitive, almost unconscious writing process that resulted in a kind of ?poetry of melancholy.?
Wilson recruited a stellar cast of guests to work on the album including bassist Tony Levin, Porcupine
Tree drummer Gavin Harrison, and keyboardist Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), alongside Japanese Koto player Michiyo Yagi, British guitarist Sand Snowman, and jazz flautist and saxophonist Theo Travis. The final product inhabits a similar experimental realm as recent albums by Thom Yorke, Portishead, and Nine Inch Nails
