    Amazing one man anarchist black metal band from the US

    sample lyrics:
    Rise up ,spirit of my ancestry. Fill me with vigilance again .No longer will we watch from our posts. Torches of war burn this eve. For those who possess undue power lurk in our midst, with innocent blood on their sleeves. Their slaves labor into nothingness,lost in the abyss of factories.
    The gods are replaced with commodities unfit to occupy their thrones.
    Their right full place. We bow our heads to mere currency . Our apathy allows capitalism to enslave. The price of our freedom is the essence of our slavery . The master I've served will never repay me. There's poison in the communion wine. In this theocracy we will all die.
    Worship false idols. Currency in our veins..The bow breaks in this ship of fools . Capitalism enslaves
    Paid in blood......
    Tonight,all flags must burn,in place of steeples.
    Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.
    This is war on our oppressors . The concept of capitalism robs us of our very nature.
    Destroys our tribes ,Torn apart our families. Gagged and bound,we slit the throat of the henchman,then laugh at the contradiction.
    Falsify our inspiration,numbed by media. The tools for complacency market our fucking rebellion. Behold,the chains of profit. There is nothing sacred!
    We are convinced that we are free because we are not starving. But our souls starve for something more than profits and convenience. We starve for truth,we starve for earth, we starve for freedom and untainted skies. How long will we swallow the shit that they feed us? How long will they rape our ears with their lies? I will surrender my heart to no one but me. There are only a few things that I believe: that people are born free and slavery is murder ,property is theft and government is tyranny: anarchy is liberty.
    Tonight all flags must burn in place of steeples. Autonomy must return to the hands of the people!

    Panopticon Biography

    Isis (stylized ISIS) was an experimental sludge / progressive / post-metal band in the vein of [a=Neurosis], [a=Godspeed You! Black Emperor], and [a=Godflesh]. Originally founded in 1997 in Boston, Massachusetts, the band relocated to Los Angeles, California in 2003.

    On May 18, 2010, Isis announced that they were disbanding; they played their last show as an active band on June 23, 2010. The band's statement said that they had "done everything we wanted to do, said everything we wanted to say," citing an agreement they made early on to end before pushing "past the point of a dignified death." The final lineup reunited for an October 13, 2018 benefit concert (paying tribute to [a=Caleb Scofield]), performing under the name "Celestial" due to the association of their namesake since disbanding.

    There are at least four artists named Panopticon:

    1) Panopticon is an atmospheric black metal band created by Austin Lunn. The project began as a studio-only effort with Lunn writing and performing all parts. While he remains the driving creative force, Panopticon has since expanded to include a lineup of musicians for live performances. The music features many familiar elements of black metal, but additionally incorporates bluegrass and Appalachian folk. In addition to sounds typical to heavy metal music, such as distorted guitars and rapid drumming, Panopticon also incorporates a diverse range of additional instrumentation, such as banjos, fiddles, bells, synthesizers and acoustic guitars.

    Lunn is an avid outdoorsman, and some listeners have noted the influence of the natural world on Panopticon's music; for example, in a review of Autumn Eternal on Pitchfork.com, one music critic noted, "one can easily imagine a Henry David Thoreau-like figure retreating to the woods to contemplate personal, spiritual, and environmental concerns." Lunn's music has also been described as "natural, organic, and methodical, masterful in its writing, fiery and alive in its execution."

    Besides the above-listed styles, Lunn also cites dark metal, melodic death metal, American folk music, post-rock, crust punk, indie rock, country, and progressive rock as influences on his style. Panopticon's subject matter varies, including political issues, history, pagan spirituality, environmental issues and personal struggles. Typically the albums are conceptual (excluding the first record) and carry a theme throughout the entire record.

    The artist has an official Facebook page and a Bandcamp site.

    2) Panopticon is also a Jazz band. "To Be In Music" is PaNoPTiCoN's only goal.
    This project idea emerged while Domenico Solazzo was recording his latest album, "Multiply", in which he invited several other musicians to a creative partnership. Some collaborations sounded better than expected hence their will to make it big and live! Inspired by the great mastery of 70's electric jazz improvisers and pioneers, PaNoPTiCoN is a sonic laboratory that takes life on stage only, where no one knows what to expect, including the musicians themselves ! Improvisation at its extreme best articulated around three axis: mood, groove and melody. At this moment, there are no core members. The PaNoPTiCoN's formula is an open invitation to anyone willing to dive into the most beautiful mystical forms of music.One show after another, the music played by the band should and will be different as the band itself!

    3) Panopticon is a Progressive Metal band formed in Brighton, UK, with influences stretching as far as Rush, Children of Bodom, Tool and Racer X.

    4) Progressive Trance group consisting of Ben McPherson, Damon Fonooni and Darius Kohanim.
