The album has been painstakingly completely reworked, re-amped, cleaned up and remixed by Spenser Morris as well as re mastered by Colin Marston to sound the way the album was originally intended.
Atomic Rooster, with the help of William Blake made the point of letting you know that Death Walks Behind You – a key lesson in all of our lives. We are a blip on Earth’s vast radar and we are all destined to return to the soils. Austin Lunn explores the concept of our mortality on this stunning early Panopticon opus, given a fitting reissue. Louisville, Kentucky may seem an unlikely wellspring for black metal, but not only has it given us Panopticon, but there is also the indubitable fact that said band are one of the most inventive addition to the black metal canon in (relatively) recent years. Six slices of pained beauty, led by trademark flair-filled guitar lines combine to create Lunn’s singular soliloquy to the deep, dark abyss that awaits us all. It is time, therefore, to rewind and re-tread our aural steps through these six songs and scream along with our guide “there is no God, there is no God, THERE IS NO GOD!”
This LP re-issue has the same mix and master as on the “Revisions of the past” edition.
