    Let me recommend Panopticon's Kentucky. The solo project of A. Lundr, it does the seemingly impossible task of bridging harsh Black Metal and Bluegrass, delivering a potent set of protest songs celebrating the land of the titular state, offering solidarity with the workers exploited by the mining industry, and decrying mountaintop removal. Proceeds go to Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, and though the vinyl is sold out at the moment (it was limited to 500 copies), the CD version is set to be released in February. I really can't recommend it enough.
