Formed in Washington DC in 2010, Vestiges set out to incorporate elements of hardcore, black metal, crust, d-beat, screamo, and post-rock to articulate their message both musically and lyrically through a series of albums that follow a central narrative about the relationship between man and nature. The band questions man's evolution as progress while cryptically referencing a broad spectrum of sociopolitical issues including industrialization, militarization, overpopulation, theism, and both human and animal rights.
Formed in 2007 in Kentucky, Panopticon is a one-man band from Louisville that seamlessly combines elements of black metal, bluegrass, and folk using a myriad of wind, string, and key instruments. The band's unique brand of atmospheric black metal is steeped in history, mythology, and a well-educated philosophy of anarchism in support of a small, yet strong community.

This is still and by far one of the best black metal albums I've heard. It's rough, it's pure, it's cold and emotional to a point where everything starts to overwhelm you at once.
The bluegrass influence was new for me but it made it even more credible. Listen to The Long Road Part 1-3 and tell me your not stunned and blown away by this sheer amount of melancholic storytelling. Marcel Faust
