This is a review of a split album between Italy's II Cinghiale and Kanjhep called "Drevne Rusevine i Magicne Rituale" which was released by Masked Dead Records and we will start off the review with II Cinghiale a musical project that plays dungeon synth.
Their side of the split starts out with neo-classical style synths and symphonic elements while programmed and martial beats can also be heard in the background along with most of the music being instrumental and when spoken word parts are utilized they give the music more of a ritualistic feeling and on some tracks they team up with Kanjhep and the music goes into more of a dungeon synth direction and elements of ambient can also be heard at times and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion II Cinghiale are a very great sounding dungeon synth project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Legacy Of The Old Kingdom" and "Lost In The Forest".
Next up is Kanjhep a musical project that plays a Tolkien inspired form of dungeon synth.
Their side of the split starts out with epic sounding synths while some tracks also include work with II Cinghale along with most of the music being instrumental as well a s adding in elements of neo-classical and later songs bring in elements of drone and dungeon synth, one track also adds in a small amount of whispers and spoken word parts and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion Kanjhep are a very great sounding Tolkien inspired dungeon synth project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rituals At The Lake" and "The Ancient Manuscript'.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of dungeon synth. 8 out of 10.
