Pre Order: VARIOUS - "From Dungeons Deep" CASSETTE

8 EUR

For the uninitiated dungeon synth may seem like just another arbitrary micro genre, but this brand of dark dungeon music is so much more. Taking cues from everything from classic 90s black metal over obscure 8- and 16-bit video games to fantasy roleplaying games and literature, dungeon synth came from humble origins and has since blossomed into a large community, spanning a great deal of influences, styles and sounds.

From Dungeons Deep is a compilation featuring 17 international dungeon synth artists, hailing from anywhere from Romania to Brazil to Canada. With completely new compositions, the artists featured on From Dungeons Deep reveal the nuanced nature of the dungeon synth genre, each showing their own take on the atmosphere and sound.
