ISIS – "Panopticon" remastered 2xLP vinyl now available, plus distro items and restocks

It's been an absolutely berzerker holiday season, but no rest for the restless as we're STRAIGHT back into it #2015 style... into the beastmode, here we go:

ISIS (the band) vinyl repress madness continues with Panopticon now getting the royal treatment, remastered audio, revamped printwork and all! This is the first full-length we ever worked with the band on, almost 10-years ago to the date (!), and it feels great to have it in print and available all these years later.

This time around the ante has been upped with Mika Jussila of Finnvox Studios' brilliant audio remastering, who was also responsible for the recent Oceanic remastering as well (previously erroneously credited by us to James Plotkin, who also does great work).

Aaron Turner's iconic layout has also received a tune-up, with uncoated printed-innersleeves housed within a super high-gloss, tip-on heavyweight gatefold jacket.

2000 copies of this beautiful latest pressing were made: 200 on clear/translucent blue, 500 on clear/translucent orange and 1300 on black vinyl. Panopticon is in-house now and available to order from the Robotic Empire - Online Store.

In case you missed the memo(s), we also recently re-pressed ISIS classics Oceanic and In The Absence Of Truth, both as 2xLPs as well. All of these and much more is available now in the Robotic Empire - Online Store
