Panopticon – Roads to the North (2014)
Nordvis (Europe)/Bindrune (US)
Review by Jude Felton
Black Metal is one sub-genre of music where the national heritage of the band is so often infused into its lyrics and themes. What is slightly rarer, however, is a band that not only makes it a part of the lyrical content, but actually transfers it into the music itself. Panopticon is one such band that does this, in abundance with, sole member, Aaron Lunn digging deep to pay tribute to the past and the present.
