Washington, DC’s Vestiges and Louisville, KY’s Panopticon
have teamed up for a split album on The Flenser.
The limited-edition LP contains two of Vestiges’ strongest
songs yet—18 minutes of material—and three unreleased
tracks by Panopticon (including a Suicide Nation cover).
Vestiges formed in January of 2010 and have already released
several critically acclaimed EPs and full-lengths that
blend hardcore, black metal, crust, D-beat, screamo and
One-man North American black metal entity Panopticon
has almost a dozen releases under its belt over the past six
years, and Metal Underground called the band “... far from
traditional, and always dynamic.” In 2012, they released
their black metal / bluegrass hybrid masterpiece album
Kentucky to great critical acclaim.
