Kentucky bourbon, coal mines, pro-union bluegrass bashed up with brutal black metal! …Appalachian Black Metal …Blackgrass?
The song “Bodies Under the Falls” by Panoptican is amazing — seriously just listen to when it blends from heavy metal guitar to bluegrass (starting around the 3:45 mark). Also, is about the 1810 Ywahoo Massacre, where white settlers massacred Cherokee women and children — not that I can understand the lyrics.
I recommend you check out the entire epic Panopticon “Kentucky” album. Serious genre ranging musicianship mixed with heavy authentic real Kentucky roots and interestingly a strong pro-union political slant.
Unfortunately the only way to actually buy this album at the moment is on vinyl. I’d like to give this guy money but I yeah I’m not into owning physical media any more. Until then, I recommend either listening on youtube or find an album download somewhere out there on the interwebs.
