thycatafalque rengeteg
Artist: Thy Catafalque
Title: Rengeteg
Genre: Avant-Garde Metal
Release Date: 11th November 2011
Label: Seasons of Mist


Album Review

The Hungarian band THY CATAFALQUE started off as a pure Black Metal act in 1998 with their debut record ‘Sublunary Tragedies’ (1999). Over the years, they developed a more experimental style, incorporating electronic and atmospheric elements into their music. Nowadays, the band consists only of Tamás Kátai, who is supported by session musicians. The first song, ‘Fekete Mezok’, starts off in a very heavy, doom-orientated and dark way . rather counterintuitive and complex. Striking is the combination of harsh and clean vocals as well as folklore-melodies, which appear throughout the entire album. Alongside with electronic samplers, a very dense and dark and melancholic atmosphere is created. In contrast, ‘Trilobita’ almost works as a happy, light-hearted song, yet it fits perfectly into the overall concept.

The song ‘Vashegyek’, 14 minutes long, pulls out all the stops and truly is a masterpiece - after a very slow, melodic beginning, accompanied with female, softly-sung vocals, a tension is constantly build up which in the end veers towards a very fast and almost brutal conclusion. All songs are very remarkable, unique and hard to grasp at the first listen - several intense passes are needed to understand and absorb every detail. THY CATAFALQUE again presented an album, which includes lots of variety, complexity and atmosphere - Avant-garde may be a suitable description, but it is probably best to indulge into the music and simply enjoy the intense and melancholic ambience.
