Multi-instrumentalist Tamás Kátai’s avant-garde metal band Thy Catafalque are offering the track “Fekete Mezők” as a free download. “Fekete Mezők” is taken from the band’s most recent full-length, Rengeteg. Thy Catafalque released Rengeteg on January 10, 2012 via Season of Mist.
Rengeteg is a forward-thinking metal record which saw Thy Catafalque taking a huge step in the band’s ever evolving and shape-shifting musical development. What started out as a black metal band assembled by Kátai in 1999, has transformed into an eclectic amalgamation of Metal, Folk, and progressive rock. Branded “Avant-garde Metal” by its mastermind, the songs and sounds drift and swirl between fragile crystalline structures into harsh and sombre soundscapes. Despite its scope and range, Tamás Kátai’s mature songwriting maintains the precarious balance between the exciting and the consistent, and nonetheless heavy.
