The state of Kentucky manages to release some great metal from artists like Panopticon, Seidr, to this atmospheric and ominous gem from multi- instrumentalist Patrick T. Hall. Sapthuran has shared splits with many DSBM artists like SAD and Leviathan- but to say this is DSBM really doesn't cut it. This is more Burzum than Xasthur and the man truly deserves recognition for another great addition to USBM. The Wanderer is told in two parts from spectres to werewolves with low-fi minimalist production which helps create its evil "aura". Forever a Wandering Spirit " is the highlight - check it out
