Maxwell Heilman From my experience, Dungeon Synth is a polarized genre to explore — it either works or it doesn't. Old Tower has a deep understanding of the spiritual aspects of this music, along with embracing the cheesiness of the instrumentation and making something genuinely emotional out of it. It takes a unique musical mind to pull this style off to a truly memorable degree, and this guy did it. Favorite track: The Rise of the Specter part I.

comaunite Best dungeon synth I've heard. Period. Seriously though, this here release (and the backcatalog too) is quality stuff. Sends chills down the spine and doesn't sound like utter MIDI trash, like so many others in the genre. Kudos!
