Today, on the 16th of October, there is a release of the sixth album "Sgùrr" by avant-garde project Thy Catafalque, formed by the Hungarian instrumentalist Tamás Kátai. Season of Mist has streamed the new record.
"This is "Sgùrr" in full. The matter is never silent. It has been carrying the pure, clean cadence in its droning corridors for millions of years and who ever heard it, will always hear what mountains murmur and water sings," — Tamás Kátai comments: "The title of this album derives from Scottish Gaelic and means 'the top of a mountain'. Yet most of the songs are equally about water, mountains, their interrelationship and the symbols attached to them — inspired by the Scottish Highlands and weird enough the Hungarian Lowlands. There are not many vocal lines at all, but when there occur, they are not pleasant. Compare to previous albums this music is mostly unfriendly, bristling and cold compared to the previous albums. I guess everything is more metal this time."
The album was recorded by the main mind Tamás Kátai (vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, programming), joined by guest musicians Dimitris Papageorgiou (violin), Balázs Hermann (double bass), Zoltán Kónya (additional vocals), Ágnes Sipos (soprano) and Viktória Varga (narration).
