Avant-garde mastermind THY CATAFALQUE is premiering his brand-new album Vadak in advance of the release date! The album is set for worldwide release on June 25th, 2021, but it’s launched prior to its final release as a full album stream, which you can listen in full below.
Tamás Kátai comments: ”So this is Vadak in its entirety, our tenth album in line. I don’t have much to add any more because everything is there I can say at the moment. Have a nice day!”
THY CATAFALQUE’s humble genius Tamás Kátai abandons any and all prenotions of tradition. Intertwining elements from a vast swath of unrelated genres, from jazz to pop to folk, and everything in between, THY CATAFALQUE masterfully crafts an eclectic sound that breaks down any generic barriers or borders. Following the massive success of 2020’s critically-acclaimed Naiv, the entity returns with Vadak, another esoteric monument in its already storied catalog.
Meaning ‘Wildlings‘ in Hungarian, the album title is a deliberate clue to the exotic and feral essence of Vadak. Like seedlings scattered throughout the forest by the mere forces of nature, THY CATAFALQUE’s imaginative sound grows with an organic sense of whimsy, cultivated within the vast influences of our megacosm. Thematically, Vadak is a foreboding lesson in mortality. Emphasizing the fragility that is shared by man and beast alike, the record explores our Freudian life instincts, in which we inherently fear and run from the ultimate goal of existence: death.
At its core, Vadak expresses the familiar hallmarks that are unique to only THY CATAFALQUE, and yet, it is an unpredictable magnum opus, showcasing the latest evolution from Kátai and his esteemed co-conspirators. The album puts forth an elegance that cannot be matched or rivaled by any musical contemporary, taking fans on an adventure that is rife with excitement, drama, and unbridled craftsmanship.
