Panopticon is a one-man atmospheric black metal band from Louisville, Kentucky, United States of America which holds anarchist beliefs. The band was formed by Austin Lunn in 2007, and in early 2008 he left his other band Anagnorisis to focus all his attention on Panopticon. The band’s releases are the 2008 self-titled album, the 2009 album Collapse, and split albums with Wheels Within Wheels and Lake of Blood; several other releases are forthcoming. The band is influenced both by early BM like Darkthrone and Mayhem and by crust bands such as Amebix.

Lake of Blood
All being said the band need to tighten up as musicians, but their overall delivery and approach hints at something far deeper and truer than so called US black metal like Abigail Williams and more along the lines of a more melodic and organic, less chaotic, corpse painted and spiky Averse Sefira mixed with Wolves in the Throne Room.
