When I first heard the term “dungeon synth,” I imagined a style of dance music you’d hear in a subterranean goth club, but it’s actually a dark hybrid of neoclassical music, ambient, and black metal, heavily influenced by medieval lore and fantasy literature. What it lacks in grooves, it often makes up for in atmosphere […]
Salem seemed briefly ubiquitous in 2010, but history has been kinder to this midwestern electronic trio than anyone would’ve predicted from their rapid rise and equally rapid dismissal.
