PanopticonOn The Subject Of Mortality
…On the Subject of Mortality is Panopticon’s third full-length and most melodic record. Whereas their other works are heavily rooted in a bluegrass / black metal hybrid, Mortality is more ambient, melding obtuse post-metal dronescapes with Godspeed-like slow builds and blown-out blast beats.
The unilateral expression of mastermind Austin Lunn, Panopticon is an influential North American black metal band originally from Louisville, Kentucky. They have released over a dozen full-lengths, splits and EPs, most notability 2012’s classic Kentucky. This repress is limited to 500 copies and is packaged in a heavy jacket with an insert.
