PANIC ROOM is a 3-piece hardcore band based out of San Marcos, Texas. These designs are for their first album titled Bound in Chains. 

PANIC ROOM was inspired by a week-long series of sleep paralysis experiences suffered by the lead singer and guitarist, Evan Granberry. Songs like Cerebral Chasm and Bound in Chains explore the intense fear that this phenomenon stirs in the sufferer, who feels as though they are shackled to their bed as their mind pulls unspeakable terror from its darkest unexplored corners. The overarching theme of this album recounts the feeling that, even in your own room--in your own bed--you aren't quite safe. Even in your spaces of solace and comfort in life, panic and fear can attack when you are most vulnerable.

These designs are inspired by this phenomenon and the tracks on the album. I paired imagery taken from The Nightmare by Henry Fuseli with modern elements to evoke the same haunted feeling the listener experiences when listening to this album.
