MAP08: Vlad's Carpathian Concert is the eighth map of DBK01: Dungeon Synths. It was designed by Fenes Octavian (DooM_RO) and uses the music track "Prepare for Battle," originally composed for The Legend of Dragoon and rearranged for the OB-Xd virtual synthesiser by Big Ol' Billy based on a MIDI rendition by Zagro.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Go towards the blue key room and on the bridge leading to it, jump northeast outside the fence. Go around and to a platform where you can lower an invulnerability. (sector 32)
  2. On the bridge to the blue key room, step onto the highest speaker at the northeast corner of the central area to reveal a switch to the east. Shoot it and head southeast, then head south through a corridor to find a soul sphere, a megaarmor, energy cell packs, rockets, and a berserk pack. Note that you can only get this secret, and Secret #4, on Ultra-Violence or higher, because the trigger for the shootable switch only works on those settings. (sector 397)
  3. After you get the blue key, return to the crushers to the southwest and enter the side path going northwest to get energy cells, a box of shotgun shells, a medikit, and a yellow key. (sector 906)
  4. In Secret #2, open the wall to the east with yellow bars and follow the path to a BFG9000. (sector 929)
