Black Metal Friday: “Where Mountains Pierce The Sky” by Panopticon
Ides Bergen   |  

Panopticon Band Photo

Panopticon is a one-man black metal project out of Louisville, Kentucky. Multi-instrumentalist Austin Lunn is the man behind the music and prefers to remain in the shadows while his art does the talking for him. And speak it does… in volumes. Panopticon’s fourth album, 2012′s Kentucky, is probably the most groundbreaking and important black metal album that America has ever produced. The album’s deft fusion of Appalachian folk music to traditional black metal is both jarring and breathtaking.

Never one to rely upon black metal’s tired Satanic cliches, Lunn describes Panopticon as “Anarcho Pagan Black Metal.” However, recent releases have seen him veering away from politics toward a more introspective and contemplative point of view. The most recent Panopticon record, Roads to the North, continues to expand upon this subject matter.

Here from Roads to the North is the stunning track “Where Mountains Pierce The Sky.”

Twenty-five years ago, one teenage character helped revive the Disney animation brand. Thanks to the success and quality of The Little Mermaid, an enduring title in the Disney library, animated films gained mainstream attention after years of disappointments by various studios. The movie’s significance in multiple genres (animation, musicals, coming-of-age) and its ability to win over audiences worldwide was something to celebrate.

In celebrating the film’s 25th anniversary, it is imperative that any Disney or Mermaid fan follows one of these steps to honor Ariel, Sebastian, and the clan.

Massive Metal Monday: “Only For The Weak” By In Flames

In Flames Band Photo

When In Flames burst onto the world metal stage in the mid-’90s, they helped introduce the world to melodic death metal. It was a sound that would come to be known as “the Gothenburg sound,” taking the name of the city in Sweden that spawned In Flames, Dark Tranquility, At The Gates, and many other early architects of the genre. Over the course of 20 years and eleven studio albums, In Flames has grown to be one of metal’s biggest and most influential bands spawning countless imitators. The band’s sound has evolved beyond the melodeath genre that they helped create, but the name In Flames will always be synonymous with “the Gothenburg Sound.”

Here, from their legendary fourth album, Clayman, is In Flames with the official video for “Only For The Weak.”

Watch the video here, below.

Black Metal Friday: “Wanderer Above The Sea Of Fog” by Wolves In The Throne Room

Wolves In The Throne Room Band Photo

Brothers Nathan and Aaron Weaver formed Wolves In The Throne Room in 2003 in Olympia, Washington. The band has always eschewed the traditional aesthetics of the black metal genre. Preferring a DIY approach, they generally tour with their own PA and try to avoid traditional concert venues. Torchlight is usually the only illumination and flash photography is never permitted. Going even a step further, the brothers frown upon moshing, stating that they want their show to be more of a meditative experience. Their music has been described as “eco-metal” and “astral black metal.”

“Wanderer Above The Sea Of Fog” is the opening track of Wolves In The Throne Room’s third album Black Cascade. Check it out here, below.

The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “Christmas Time is here!” Henchman 21 and “Happiness and Cheer!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of December 10, 2014. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Yeah, we missed out last week. I was busy with a post-Thanksgiving coma plus I was confused because TV was telling me that every day is Black Friday and I got confused. Anyway, we’re back with a bunch of books out this week which don’t even include the launch of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Bitch Planet, a new issue of Southern Bastards, or the start of Spider-Man and the X-Men. We’ve even got some leftovers from last week on the list, so let’s get right to The GoD List!
