3.5 greatErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | May 18th 21

Austin Lunn going pastoral and *almost* lush on this one. Tracks like "The Embers at Dawn", which starts like a daydream and ends like a nightmare, are testimonials to that new approach, maybe the lightest Lunn has ever crafted. The production is messy - as often - but it does work well with the atmosphere, even though the drums overtake a tad too much the guitars to my taste. 3.7

Every so often (mostly once a year it seems) an extreme metal album comes along and completely blows me away. My history with black metal is not very big because of how challenging many of it is to get into. However, what always brings me to the genre is the likes of those who experiment with the genre and Panopticon (through his long and winding career since 2008) has explored and perfected the style of mixing extreme black metal, with ambient drones, atmospheric guitar leads, and mind-blowing Americana and folk influences that run deep. Although this album might not be for everyone, the career Austin has had and what he has done for the metal genre is something truly amazing and this album really is the pinnacle of that exploration. It might not be perfect, but it nearly is, plus it is a hell of a listen for the 70 minutes it?s on.

I love this record so much. I hear some of the complaints people have with the production but I love every minute of this record. The Embers at Dawn gives me such an inexplicable euphoric feeling.

Way way way too early to rate this. This is a grower for sure.

4.0 excellentThyCrossAwaits | May 15th 21

I appreciate the idea of having a black metal ?side? and an acoustic folk ?side? for a record, but it?s clear that Panopticon flourishes most when Lunn focuses on songcraft and not which of his influences is at the forefront.
