Panopticon, on the other hand, has received plenty of attention over the last year, and rightly so. It really sounded like nothing else. The fact that it was the achievement of just one person Austin L. Lunn made it all the more remarkable. Panopticon contributes three songs to this split.
That multi-faceted assault on the senses takes a breather about 6 minutes in, giving way to a slow, plaintive guitar melody that proves to be just as transfixing as the supercharged balance of the VIII - Vestiges / Panopticon - Vestiges / Panopticon. The second song is built on contrasts, too. On the other hand, the paint-scraping vocals are volatile and lung-bursting in their passion, and the drumming is again a marvel of acrobatic complexity. And the finish markedly dials up the intensity level.
Here, both bands use the visceral, cathartic power of metal as a carrier of divergent musical ideas and emotions. Collapse is a concept album themed around what Lunn regards as the inevitable ecological collapse of modern civilization.

49 he suggested in the liner notes that listeners could believe the VIII - Vestiges / Panopticon - Vestiges / Panopticon were about whatever they wished. This split also features a blackgaze style and incorporates a large amount of clean singing. Social DisservicesPanopticon's fourth album, is themed around Lunn's criticism of the foster system and social services more generally.
The album has a bleak style informed by punk bands; at the same time, it features lengthy, complex compositions the longest, "Patient", tops the twenty-minute markand it is his first of many releases to feature guest violinist John Becker sometimes credited as Johan Beckerwhose contributions have since become a distinct fixture of Panopticon's sound. According to the liner notes, "A portion of the profits from this record go to families in crisis and abuse victims.
KentuckyPanopticon's fifth album, is sometimes regarded as its commercial breakthrough. More of the album than ever before consists of bluegrass musicthough the three longer compositions are metal and the song "Black Waters" is closer to ambient music.
