Blaine Ooksgiver Amazing and very well constructed Dungeon Synth made by the late Matthew Davis. If you want to get this album at least tip it a buck or two.

Trveheimer Though this is mostly attributed to dungeon synth, this should also appeal to any fan of ambient soundscapes. playful and kinda naive, very compelling melodies, a rich but not too polished sound, great work

glitched One of the best Dungeon Synth albums I've heard. Dripping with atmosphere and melancholy, it's great music to get lost in. Favorite track: What Lies Beyond the Door.

cowtools If someone put a sword to my throat and forced me to choose only one dungeon synth album to take with me into the catacombs, it would be this one. It truly sounds out of time, like it was not made by human hands. Favorite track: Onward, to Hy Breasail.

This album was recorded in 1996/1997 and was originally released on cassette in 1997 (with a short run re-issue in 1999). The material here has been digitized from cassette (the full cassette cover has also been scanned and added to this listing as well). This release has been out of print for a long time, but it deserves to be heard. Matthew passed away in 2011, but his memory lives on through his music. There is no cost to download this album, but any donations received for it will go to Matt's surviving family.
