PANOPTICON / Kentucky (2012)

Panopticon is Austin Lunn’s one-man project.  It’s melodic Black Metal with Kentucky bluegrass interludes.  Unfortunately there’s only one instance where the two differing styles are brought together.  Elsewhere they stand very much apart, each taking their turn, one after another without ever forming a cohesive union.  A more elaborate attempt to fuse them would’ve offered a more interesting listening experience.  Despite that it's still good fun.  Lunn's technical ability and passion shine through.  An audience might be hard to find, though.
