ISIS – Panopticon 2xLP re-press now available! +Robotic Empire Online Store updates galore

Wow, did we ever get swamped with tons of orders for the new TORCHE EP, the In Return 10″+CD (together)! Major thanks to everyone who’s kept us busy over the last few weeks… but because we need constant chaos, here’s another Robotic Empire Online Store update for ya!


First and foremost, the long-awaited repress of ISIS‘ landmark Panopticon album on 2xLP has finally commenced! This incredible full-length has been out of print for a couple of years now, and to celebrate the occasion we have re-released this beast on several colors of vinyl (of course). 2000 more copies have been made, 1100 of which are on black. The other 900 copies are divided evenly over three colors of vinyl (300 copies each) of a Cokebottle Blue & Clear mix w/ Silver Smoke, a Half Clear / Half Cokebottle Green w/ Splatter, and a Grey / Silver mix that looks like an awesome marble gray! The color combinations compliment the gatefold album art nicely, and we’re pretty stoked to finally have this thing back in print!

For those who didn’t get a chance to check out Panopticon the first time around, it really has been a defining release for ISIS as it is their third full-length, and was recorded directly after the band transplanted from Boston to Los Angeles. The melodic and mellow moments of past are seen explored much further, and the heavier elements are absolutely crushing as well. In hindsight, it’s the perfect transition between the pummeling nature of its monstrous predecessor Oceanic, and the more atmospheric elements of their latest album In The Absence Of Truth. Again, we’re really pleased to have this back in print as it’s one of our favorite ISIS releases to date and we’re proud to make it available again!

The opening track from Panopticon , “So Did We” can be heard online here.

Beyond this 2xLP repress and the recent represses of ISIS In The Absence Of Truth 2xLP and the members-of represses for RED SPAROWES At The Soundless Dawn 2xLP and Every Red Heart Shines Toward The Red Sun 2xLP, we’ve been busy packing up all of the TORCHE and PYGMY LUSH pre-orders that include t-shirts. If you’re still waiting on this/these from us, your package is literally in the mail or on its way to the post office as you read this!
