THY CATAFALQUE, the daringly progressive metal project of Tamás Kátai, are streaming the second new track off their forthcoming album, ‘Meta’. The track, titled “Sirály”, is streaming now at PopMatters.
Regarding the track, THY CATAFALQUE mastermind Tamás Kátai comments, “Sirály means Seagull and the track features Ágnes Tóth from The Moon And The Nightspirit on vocals and Judit Csere on cello. Ágnes was singing on previous albums as well and now she’s back for this piece again. The song is more or less is an allegory of life and passing, inspired by the Scottish seaside trips with the blue North Sea and the white seagulls circling above it.”
THY CATAFALQUE will release a new album titled ‘Meta’ on Oct. 7 in North America (Sept.16th worldwide). Pre-orders for the album are available now at Season of Mist E-Shop across several formats.

What the press is saying about THY CATAFALQUE:
“For all the folk metal in the world today, Kátai’s work is among the most rewarding and least pandering, approaching the sound with remarkable grace” – POPMATTERS
“Sgùrr really doesn’t sound like anything else you’re likely to hear in 2015. It’s richly textured, remarkably imaginative, and ever-changing. It makes an indelible impression the first time you hear it, and it both compels and rewards additional visits with new discoveries, leading to an even deeper appreciation for the care that went into its conception and its performance. Don’t miss it.” – NO CLEAN SINGING
“This is not what you’re expecting, in the best way possible” – METALSUCKS
