Machina Coeli is a solo artist from Italy that plays dungeon synth and this is a review of his 2017 album "Gnosis" which was released by Masked Dead Records.
Nature orientated soundscapes start off the album along with some middle eastern style chanting a few seconds later while the music also brings in a great amount of dungeon synth style synths as well as mixing in a medieval atmosphere at times and the music would also fit in either a fantasy movie or video game.
Programmed beats a re also used quite a bit throughout the recording along with some elements of neo-classical while t he synths also bring in a variety of many different sounding keys and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length as well a s most of the music being instrumental.
Machina Ceoli plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in dungeon synth while elements of neo-classical and kratrock can also be heard at times, the production sounds very dark while the song themes focus on Gnosticism and the Nag Hammadi Codex.
In my opinion Machina Ceoli are a very great sounding dungeon synth project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pleroma" "Creation" and "Unity". 8 out of 10.
