Panopticon releasing ‘Social Disservices’ (song debut)

by BBG


After releasing For Winter Fire with his doom project Seidr earlier this year, Austin Lunn (A.Lundr) is back with his solo black metal venture Panopticon. Though keeping busy with splits as recently as this past August with names like Lake of Blood, When Bitter Spring Sleeps and Wheels Within Wheels, Social Disservices is Panopticon’s first full-length LP since the release of the well-received Collapse featuring a guest appearance from Amebix‘s Rob Miller.

Social Disservices will rear its ugly head via the venerable Flenser Records in mid November, but we have the first look from the album in the eleven-plus-minute ripper “Resident” streaming below. Though “Resident” goes directly for the throat and rarely lets go, Social Disservices as an album allows brief moments of respite in between the scathing black metal destruction. Moments of spacious post-rock, atmospherics, and reverb dot the record, proving that sometimes being the heaviest means also knowing when to hold back.

Check out “Resident” for the first time, and a few samples from the LP below.
