The first book on this unique and fascinating genre of music, Dungeon Synth: The Rebirth of The Legend is an exploration of this art form and culture. Originally birthed, almost by accident, from the black metal genre in the 1990s, dungeon synth has not only returned, but exploded, in recent years, with a legion of new musicians picking up the figurative—and in some cases, literal—torch. Featuring detailed interviews with many of the key figures, the book explores what separates dungeon synth from other forms of dark ambient, as well as its past, present and possible future.
This edition of this 120-page book, originally self-published in very low numbers in early 2022, has been edited and upgraded with more images and much-improved overall production.
Includes interviews with:
MORTIIS, DEPRESSIVE SILENCE, OLD SORCERY, OLD TOWER, MURGRIND, ÖRNATORPET, GALDUR, ERANG, VINDKALDR, EQUITANT, JOAN LLOPIS, HOLLOW MYTHS and more.
