I know it's not metal, but I feel like I can ask about this here:

So Burzum has like two ambient (or dark ambient, I don't really know about those music genres) releases, which are called: Daudi Baldrs and Hlidskjalf. In my opinion, these are some really good ones, and I'd like to ask you guys for a few recommendations of artists with this kind of sound in their music.

I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but maybe you can give this a shot;

(mind you this ambiance is much darker, if that's not what you're looking for, don't bother!)

Sounds terrific. Is this actually dark ambient? Do you know more musicians like this?

Unfortunately that wouldn't be too helpful, given that those two albums don't really represent what most dungeon synth is about. You can easily find cheap casio DS or the kind of ethereal synth music if you wish, but that wouldn't really be near the core idea of those albums.

I find it difficult to come up with a good suggestion here, but you might want to try Dark Ages - A Chronicle of the Plague. The overall sound may be somewhat similar to that of Hlidskalf (vast, more refined than that of DB, somewhat aggressive in the usage of synth samples), but the main point here is that the music is similarly minor-driven as that of Daudi Baldrs. ACotP invokes mental images of desolation and degradation, which is what Daudi Baldrs does to me, even though the former lacks the mustiness and the somewhat personal sound of the latter. However, I hope you will find this recommendation helpful and even though it might not be exactly what you were looking for, it should prove to be an interesting listen.

Wait, I've got a question: Why is there a neoclassical/dark ambient band (Elend) in metal-archives?

Edit: Forget it, I just read the rules.

Lord Lovidicus is quite similar. His earlier stuff was much simpler synth work, while the instrumentation and composition have greatly improved with his more recent works.

Some more Elend
