Nick Shutter Ten minutes of chilly ambient dungeon synth. From its art to the sounds contained within, it's an EP that succeeds in creating a wintery atmosphere with a strong aesthetic. There's a touch of suspense and unease contained within these soft pads that brings to mind images of losing oneself in a whiteout, perhaps on a mountain still inhabited by users of arcane magic, watching from the darkness. Favorite track: ᒪᐅᔭ.
Tyranonaut thumbnail
Tyranonaut As arcane, cold, and esoteric as it gets. This is ultra obscure Dungeon synth in all of it's wintry glory. This release is among the best on HDK and is a short journey through mystifying dungeons and gargantuan Inuit mountain ranges. Highly recommended. It's only flaw is the album only runs 10 minutes.

The Reaper's Preacher The first run was sold out by the time I knew HDK existed, and I waited months for this. PdH feels all over this tape, great stuff.
M thumbnail
M So cold it's scalding.
This is not music. This is what happens inside your mind when its fissured plateaus are stirred by the snow-blinding Presence. As the white takes you, will you shatter or will you recognize yourself in its ineffable fractal reflection? Favorite track: ᐸᓇ.

oboecop These tracks are perfect for setting a great, eerie mood for horror or tense RPG sessions!

>>> DUNGEONOSTALGIE release # 02

Frosty winds blow into the Heimat der Katastrophe headquarters...
The mysterious tape of ᐊᐳᑦ, cold and enigmatic, plays in our boomboxes... coming from eternal snows at the edge of the world, ᐸᓇ (knife) is ecstatic winter-synth in the veins of the best Paysage D'Hiver and Vinterriket. It's the soundtrack of a journey without return, in ice dungeons and valleys swept by snow storms.
Enjoy this experience of cold and loneliness, enjoy the music of ᐊᐳᑦ.

(Clark Ashton Smith,1934)

My heart is made a necromancer's glass,
Where homeless forms and exile phantoms teem,
Where faces of forgotten sorrows gleam
And dead despairs archaic peer and pass:
Grey longings of some weary heart that was
Possess me, and the multiple, supreme,
Unwildered hope and star-emblazoned dream
Of questing armies. . . Ancient queen and lass,
Risen vampire-like from out the wormy mould,
Deep in the magic mirror of my heart
Behold their perished beauty, and depart.
And now, from black aphelions far and cold,
Swimming in deathly light on charnel skies,
The enormous ghosts of bygone worlds arise.
