"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"
