Tales from Bandcamp: Autumn Eternal by Panopticon


a2881869020_10I know I’ve gone radio silent the past month due to a mixture of work and writing burnout.  However not at least dropping a few words about the latest from one of my favorite artists would be a pretty terrible thing.

Autumn Eternal displays Panopticon’s knack for creating stunning folk/black metal with majestic atmospheres realized to a level I’ve yet hear from the one-man band.  Incorporating things like choral vocals and keys, a heavier focus on melodies, and a slight scale back on the bluegrass elements makes this album a very fluid, well-crafted affair.  Each track carries its own personality and the small bump up in sound quality does help the record brandish more of a punch.  And as usual, Austin Lunn’s lyrics are absolutely beautiful.

Maybe I’ll return at some point to write up a full review, but until then, don’t hesitate a moment in giving Autumn Eternal a listen/purchase.  Enjoy!!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!
