I am very new to the genre of dungeon synth. The little bit I have listened to reminds me of Glen Danzig’s Black Aria, with its sombre tones and almost choking atmosphere. That’s not to say all dungeon synth is like that. One of the albums that I’ve had on rotation quite a bit is Thangorodrim’s Gil-Estel. While there are still some signature undertones of possible danger, this album has lightened up just a little bit, and it makes it that much more versatile as both a listening experience and practical background music for an RPG session, writing, or anything else.
