"KENTUCKY WORKS PRECISELY BECAUSE IT FEELS SO THOROUGHLY HUMAN"
"PANOPTICON'S MUSIC MOVES IN HUMAN PATTERNS"
"SETTING APPALACHIAN PROTEST SONGS AGAINST SURGING BLACK METAL SHOULDN'T WORK. ON KENTUCKY, IT DOES"
"HIS FIXATION ON THIS VERY REAL WORLD TOPIC HELPS TO HUMANIZE A STYLE OF METAL THAT CAN OFTEN FEEL EMOTIONALLY DISTANT"
8/10 DECIBEL MAGAZINE
From one of the most prolific and innovative minds in metal comes a seminal work, a milestone, reinventing the parameters of metal to include threads of bluegrass and lyrical themes centered around Kentucky and its rich history embedded in coal mining struggle. This is by far the standout work by an artist who has already delivered such personal and revolutionary work as "On The Subject Of Morality". Mixed and mastered by Colin Marston, this is also Panopticon's most sonically blistering release to date.
Edition: 500 2xLP, gatefold with insert. 250 on green 250 on black.
