Malfet are a solo project from California that plays a rhythmic form of dungeon synth and this is a review of their 2018 album "The Snaking Path" which will be released on cassette on march 30th by Pacific Threnodies.
Nature sounds start off the album along with some ritualistic yet tribal drumming a few seconds later while the synths take the music more into a dark ambient and dungeon synth direction as well as some touches of folk and neo-classical and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a variety of many different sounding keys along with a great amount of programmed beats while all of the songs stick to an instrumental direction and the songs also bring in mellotron, harps and flutes.
Malfet plays a style of dungeon synth that is more rhythmic than most bands or artists that play this style, the production sounds very dark while the song themes focus darkness and nature.
In my opinion Malfet are a very great sounding rhythmic dungeon synth solos project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Edenic Reflections" and "Approaching Daylight". 8 out of 10.
