sounds like he put his entire album through Paulstretch on low settings... it's definitely just 'blurred' somehow, could be reverb, but SOMETHING obfuscating is slapped on the master channel
sounds like stacked reverbs, or even more likely, an Eventide Space ( or Black Hole)

Dungeon Synth is like uploading music to DeviantArt instead of Bandcamp

All I do is make Dungeon Synth mp3s and fall asleep at 5AM

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dungeon_synth

hahaha that page is TEETERING on the brink of oblivion. like marty mcfly's family photo. schrodinger's wiki.

I literally can't figure out if the phrase "skeletal instrumentation" means bone-like or, like, stripped down (as in "skeleton crew")

I feel like dungeon synth can't have BOTH been born in the mid-80s and have been influenced by black metal.

at first glance the whole affair seems like: guys grew up playing 8/16-bit (or early windows) videogame RPGs, they like the feel of that music but want to make it more culturally legit somehow, so the best solution is to make an analog soundtrack to be to tabletop gaming what SNES soundtracks were to those games. but this only makes sense if tabletop dungeon (core?) is NOT already a genre, which I guess it already is, UNLESS the charming stuff I saw on the first page was only successful retcon of modern music to pretend that it's from olden times.

what is real...

Ross you nailed it, that's not EXACTLY how I would've described it, but your narrative is definitely truer to life than that wiki.

Genre labels and scenes always retroactively devour and absorb the early movers - it'd be like if the Borg acted as though Locutus had never been Picard.

I think I'm Dungeon Synth now, like how in 9th grade I was punk rock and in 10th grade I was metal

I'm just a Dungeon Synth boy for life now.
