I 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!!!
