A fan of music that tells a tale and Viking stuff, I was quite taken by Panopticon's epic telling of the tale of King Grimnir and his brother Agnar using both electric and acoustic instruments that blended well together.
Favorite track: The Lay Of Grimnir.
A beautiful marriage between old and new of the black metal genre, with some unique elements thrown into the mix. Panopticon doesn't disappoint at all with his debut. Nearly perfect. 4.5/5
Favorite track: Flag Burner, Torch Bearer.
