Matt Solls of Decibel has interviewed Panopticon’s Austin Lunn.
Here is an excerpt:
We could all stand to learn something from Austin Lunn’s work ethic. In addition to being a full-time family man and co-running a successful brewery, the dude has managed to put out 15 Panopticon releases in the last eight years while also contributing his multi-instrumentalist skills to albums by Seidr, Falls of Rauros, Saor and more.
Staying true to this breakneck creative pace, Lunn is mere weeks away from dropping Panopticon’s sixth LP, the enthralling and resonant Autumn Eternal. The album is a thematic companion to his two previous LPs, but musically, it eschews the “blackened bluegrass” approach in favor of emotionally charged, mournfully melodic black metal (think Winterfylleth meets early Katatonia). We talked to Lunn about creating Autumn Eternal, taking inspiration from nature and being a musician in the often-disheartening environment of the digital age.
