Thy Catafalque Alföldi Kozmosz New Song and Sgùrr Album Details

Hungarian Avant-Garde metal project Thy Catafalque will release their new sixth studio album entitled Sgùrr on October 16th via the Season of Mist label.  Accompanying the announcement is the new song Alföldi Kozmosz, which is an instrumental folk inspired track laden with beautiful off-kilter violin melody.  Project leader Tamás Kátai said about the track – “This is a quite spontaneous song, recorded in my childhood room with my old, 10 Dollar classical guitar while on a visit at home in Hungary. The violin comes similarly off-handed, played by my Greek friend, Dimitris Papageorgiou. There are no vocals, only music depicting my love towards the great Hungarian plain where I was born and raised. Or home. Hence this song title, which translates as Lowland Cosmos”

Tamás Kátai also commented about the title of the album Sgùrr, saying – “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.”
