Panopticon Comments On New Album "Collapse" Leaking Onto The Internet
Atmospheric black metal band Panopticon has issued the following statement regarding the new album "Collapse" being leaked on the Internet:
"As some of you may know,some one has leaked the record onto the internet. the version leaked is not a final mix and master of the album. It was ripped off of myspace on ostara most likelly using audacity or some other recording program and converted to mp3s.I have seen complaints about the sound quality and this is why. if you choose to download this version ,rather than wait for the release date,you are not hearing the album the way i originally intended.
"i had specifically asked on ostara that the album not be distributed in this way for that very reason.alot of folks will not buy the album,but instead listen to this crappy ,clicking,poor quality version of the album.That sucks.
"for those of you who choose to buy the album when it comes out next month,please feel free to upload and distribute it in this way.i ask that you include the lyrics and explanations by making jpgs of the booklet and instert,to ensure that others get the concept of collapse,but in general i have no problem with my work being pirated,as long as its decent quality and after the release date.
"for those of you who took it down off your blogs at my request,my sincerest thanks are n order.thank you for not blowing me off and thank you for respecting the work i put into "collapse".for those of you who have it now,i hope you enjoy the album despite the poor sound,but i encourage you to obtain the official release,as it will be both aesthetically and sonically superior."
