While Kapittel does feel like a new classic in the field of dungeon synth, its dedication to the old and barren sounds of 90’s dark ambient and dungeon music is astounding. With two long tracks, Kapittel not only worships at the altar of old school DS but rather is its own subterranean lair complete with flickering torches fueled by its own wicked magic.
Favorite track: Inn Blant Steiner.
No other dungeon synth or related genre effects me the way Fief does. From beginning to end I am transported to an idyllic past of play and adventure. Is it my own childhood fantasies I am remembering, or some shared myth of adventure and magic? Regardless, this, and all other Fief albums, are pure Arcadian bliss. Beatrice
