Metallurgical Fire Whether one agrees with the stances that Austin Lunn takes or not, there’s no question that he has a gift for making people think and feel in a way that is rare today. He’s never been a nihilist and he gives me hope for humanity. The progression of Panopticon’s music doesn’t diminish my love of this album, in fact it resonates with me now more than in the past.

Ippocalyptica Comparing this to Panopticon’s later, more mature, more technical, and better-produced albums does nothing to diminish its value, and if anything, underscores how much passion and intensity Austin Lunn had from the very beginning. Furthermore, whereas most other one-man black metal bands are content to write about cosmic, esoteric, or depressive themes (which is all good), Panopticon is rather grounded and socially activist in orientation, which adds conviction to the music. Essential. Favorite track: Flag Burner, Torch Bearer.
