Falls of Rauros / Panopticon
29 April 2014
Panopticon’s career output been fairly prolific, with the one man band giving us four full lengths (with another due this summer) and seven split releases (including the one we talk about here). It’s in stark contrast to Falls of Rauros who, in a similar time scale, have released two full lengths a handful of early demos and this split. Both though, tread their own path of nature inspired black metal with the former often turning to slightly different sounds depending on the records theme while the latter are firmly planted in that Cascadian sound that’s been rife these last few years.
