Erang are a solo project from France that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of dungeon synth and medieval fantasy music and this is a review of his self released 2017 compilation "Echoes From A Past That Never Was".
Covers by This Mortal Night, Alex Lamia and Arathgoth start off the compilation along with some synths that also use a variety of many different sounding keys along with a medical atmosphere and elements of dungeon synth and dark ambient as well as some programmed beats.
Spoken word parts are used briefly while one track also adds in a small amount of operatic female vocals and there is also a brief use of melodic guitar leads along with some heavy riffs and programmed blast beats that are influenced by black metal and most of the tracks are instrumental and almost towards the end a track also brings in black metal screams and clean male vocals are used on the closing song.
On this compilation Erang brings in some of his best dungeon synth and medieval fantasy music he has recorded over the years while also adding in a touch of black metal at times and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding collection from Erang and if you are a fan of dungeon synth, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I Dreamt Of AN Emerald Forest" "Golden Age Of the Underwater Kingdom" and "All Te Beauty We Lost", 8 out of 10.
