Brian3737 The two Panopticon albums preceding this are in my top five of all time. I didn’t buy this one last year because I’m a damned fool, and didn’t want to sit through the folk/country etc. half of it. Don’t be a damned fool like me. This is a massive achievement and an absolutely beautiful piece of art. Favorite track: The Moss Beneath The Snow.

TheTrueMoonroot So beautiful piece of art. No matter the length of the album, I enjoy every second of it, I can really feel how much work and emotions lies behind those compositions. It would be the best album to finish the one era because it kind of connects all the elements of the previous albums together in one concept under little bit different light. BUT, I really hope it is not the last one and there is much more music from Austin under the Panopticon name in the future. Thank you sir! Favorite track: Blåtimen.

Mike Swag I'm all about the folk / post-rock half of this double album.

Well he came from far off/over behind the hills / and he was raised on the silent stars and the sound of the whip-poor-wills Favorite track: The Wandering Ghost.

about

This is the full two disk, 2 hour long album sequenced as one long record, as it was meant to be heard. Please don't listen to the album on your laptop speakers, it will sound like shit. Give it a shot on a long hike or by a fire with headphones. The first half of the album is atmospheric metal, the second half is more americana focused, so beware if you hate country/folk.
cheers

Blåtimen is in honor and dedication of Valfar's WINDIR
The Wandering Ghost is for Adam Nicholson and in memory of Guy Clark.
This album takes inspiration from the words of Sigurd Olson and the North woods he so cherished.

This album is in loving memory of Cliff and Ele Hokanson.

NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON WAS ASKED TO REVIEW THIS ALBUM.
