CHRONICLES OF JEST “Pastoral Daydreams”
Ancient Meadow Records
Perhaps the progenitor of dungeon synth that doesn’t appeal to the traditional black metal adjacency, Chronicles of Jest has become a model for idyllic imagery and invocations of bucolic soundscapes in dungeon synth. For nearly 5 years Chronicles of Jest has imparted tastefully executed deviations from traditional old school dungeon synth. Pastoral Daydreams is another masterfully executed foray into sonic languor and and blissful landscapes. Peer out of the dungeon–if only briefly–and find reprieve in the gently rolling fields and lush woodlands of Pastoral Daydreams.
