Dungeon Synth (7)

I am quite big into dungeon synth and into the part which is more ambient-y and comfy. Shit like Utred, Chaucerian Myth, Fief Depressive Silence and Vinkaldr are my jams

What is your opinion the genre? Do you have any favourite artists?

I don't necessarily know the difference between dungeon synth and dark ambient but some of my favourites are Raison D'etre, Maeror tri, Lustmord and Asmorod.

You should listen to Call to the deep by Kurotokage (Asmorod) also

Thanks, the album is really good.
Honestly, I think dungeon synth is a sub-genre of dark ambient and the definitions both are wonky. It's more synth foccused, I would say, although that sounds like a joke...

Lustmord is genius in all genres anyway, so yeah, it is more about the aesthetic of dungeon synth (i.e. that drawings by the guy which Varg loved, gothic forests castles etc.) I will check the rest of the list later, thanks.

I think dungeon synth relies pretty much on emulating 1990s to 2000s fantasy rpg video game soundtracks more than anything else.

I guess I would say I prefer more drone oriented dark ambient music as opposed to most, especially more recently produced, dungeon synth, as a lot of it sounds like vst presets and sample packs being put together with minimal mixing (although I understand that that is part of it's charm).

I agree as most of modern productions really suck. I mostly blame it to thinking that it is easy to make and then they make stuff that is quite boring.

Or even more, they try to make new jokes (comfy synth, dino synth, etc), and that is pure goddamn depression and edgy shit imho.

Most modern dungeon synth productions suck because the producers tend to forget that the track needs to be consistent and coherent. The greatest thing about listening to older works is that the low fidelity mixing tends to fill in the gaps between the different tracks which resolves the issue of it sounding to thin and cheesy.

Comfy synth is basically just a new name for new-age/environmental ambient music for the most part so I don't have a problem with it.

Never listened to Dino synth, I'm guessing it's just regular dungeon synth but with a dinosaur on the cover art?
