If you don't own it come June 23rd you can at least on cd. http://www.silverplatters.com/p/2240112 ... n-kentucky

That is a link to a store I use and it shows the release date as the 23rd. I am so looking forward to buying this reissue. Looks like that is for the date for physical stores to sell it.
This is for the nordvis store

I'm familiar with this band thanks to brainsmasher's videos (he mentions them a lot) but I still haven't find the time to listen to them properly, for what I read they mix bluegrass and Black Metal, I may be wrong though.

The bluegrass is not really mixed with the metal content. It is ambient black metal mixed with -core and post-rock, with some bluegrass sections on a few albums. It is a quintessential "hipster black metal" band.

Talk about the emperor having no clothes! When the well started to run dry on grandiose post-rock crescendos, Panopticon started putting in cheesy Gothenburg sections. What a joke of a band!

Do you think this applies to all their albums? :scratch:

I don't think so. :nono:

:scratch: You mean started and immediately stopped, right? That melo-deathy appeared on all of one song.

On that album. Quit being a wiener. Besides, the first part you highlighted is correct due to the bluegrass parts on "Collapse" and "Roads to the North", and the second part applies to all their albums.

I don't think what I posted is fishy. I have never talked to Austin or nordvis or Bindrune. I am just talking about one of the greatest liberal albums of the past 10 years being reissued. I didn't think I would see the day that this incredible album would be reissued.

Pretty much true for Kentucky with just a few exceptions as I remember. Great album though and the only Panopticon album I actually like.

I thought this was your role here and it's cool you edited your original post.

Ok, but there are some threads for the subject:

Anyway, I'm being a picky bastard, yeah. :-P

Try the (2010) Skagos / Panopticon Split and tell me you don't like it or it's "hipster black metal". :roll:

The negligible differences between that and the other albums only further demonstrates my description is correct. You don't have to be ashamed of the truth if you actually like the band.

Stop trolling, please. :-D
P.S: I'm ashamed too because of your "hipster black metal" generalization but it's Ok, I suppose.

Hey, it's a good album who cares if hipsters like it.

No prejudice against hipsters. Some of my best friends are hipsters. :(

I don't hate Panopticon either, but the folk and bluegrass stuff isn't smoothly integrated with the metal. Austin should do what Darken did and make a side project for his instrumental folk stuff because it's way better than his metal (the same as how Lord Wind is way better than Graveland).

I don't mind so called "hipster black metal". Heck, I though Ghost Baths Moonlover was one of the top five albums released that year. I understand people use it in a derogatory term but I put no value in it. Hipster today means the current evolution of black metal. One that I find quite interesting with the ethereal sound, the mix with post rock and shoegaze. I actually find it very compelling and interesting.

As for Panopticon I love Kentucky. I haven't read all the lyrics on it but its nice with a different approach incorporating old school workers perspectives to a black metal record. Apart from that I've heard Roads to the North and Autumn Eternal. Its fine but very unmemorable for me.

This is actually my least favorite Panopticon album and think that it was really sloppily put together with way too much of a bluegrass influence. It also pisses me off that the album artwork and liner notes were laid out so poorly on the original pressing that you can't read anything--normally not a big deal except Austin does include a lot of explanations I generally find interesting to read. Kinda shitty that if I want to read that (or the "accidentally" forgotten notes), I don't have a choice to do so with the version I already paid for.

There is a huge difference between his last three studio albums. Kentucky has the most folk elements including sound clips of miners. Road To The North has folk elements but no sound clips. And Autumn Eternal has a few folk moments but it is mainly an atmospheric black metal album. What is different about Austin's folk compared with other folk black metal is his use of Appalachian folk.
