PANOPTICON’S “KENTUCKY”, OUT MAY 2012 ON HANDMADE BIRDS/PAGAN FLAMES, IS AN ABSOLUTE MILESTONE. SURE, PEOPLE SAY THIS ALL THE TIME, BUT WE MEAN IT. THE PARADIGM SHIFTS HERE. DESPITE US BEING A COUPLE MONTHS FROM ITS RELEASE, DECIBEL MAGAZINE HAS ALREADY PUBLISHED A REVIEW, AND GAVE “KENTUCKY” 8 OUT OF 10. CHECK OUT THE OFFICIAL COVER ART TO WHAT IS SURE TO BE A FUTURE HALL OF FAMER.
“KENTUCKY WORKS PRECISELY BECAUSE IT FEELS SO THOROUGHLY HUMAN”
“PANOPTICON’S MUSIC MOVES IN HUMAN PATTERNS”
“HIS FIXATION ON THIS VERY REAL WORLD TOPIC HELPS TO HUMANIZE A STYLE OF METAL THAT CAN OFTEN FEEL EMOTIONALLY DISTANT”
In response to our own frustration from not being able to find plain shirts with our favorite bands represented clearly on the front without the silly fashionable splatter of florescent all over prints that too many artists have gravitated towards, we decided to do a small line of “logo” based shirts. All black, All 100% Cotton, All logo based on front with the HMB logo on one sleeve.
The success of these will determine if shirts are something we should carry. If the response is less than stellar, I will be super pumped on my new wardrobe.
ALONG WITH THE RELEASES STILL IN THE PIPELINE FROM OUR FLAGSHIP ROSTER, WE HAVE ADDED A SECOND WAVE OF ARTISTS AND RELEASES TO THE HANDMADE BIRDS FOLD…
SWAMP HORSE, SUN DEVOURED EARTH, DER BLUTHARSCH, PANOPTICON, HEINALI AND MATT FINNEY, DEMIAN JOHNSTON, THE AUTUMNS, BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL, LOCRIAN WITH CHRISTOPH HEEMANN, SUTEKH HEXEN.
THIS YEAR IS GOING TO BE RIDICULOUS!
Next up: SERVILE SECT “TRVTH” LP- June 21st
