think im a fan
I can find some of it a bit cheesy for my tastes, but there are a couple of artists I really like;
more into the video game soundtrack style than the metal ones
Honestly hadn’t heard of this genre until the beginning of this year when the very not-dungeon synth band Powerplant released a very different second album that was tagged dungeon synth on RYM (along with Minimal Synth and Synthwave). It’s a decent listen, but I don’t know if I see myself diving into the genre at this point. Wouldn’t mind having this on in the background at times.
Also more recently I was revisiting µ-Ziq’s 1999 album Royal Astronomy and saw that people were tagging it dungeon synth as well. I can hear it on some tracks. In association with IDM and Drum & Bass, there’s otherwise been a tendency to label this modern classical (see also Venetian Snares). But is it dungeon synth?
