Tamás Kátai is back with a new album, which is considerably heavier and darker than his previous work "Sgùrr". Just like the majority of his works, "Meta" is quite an avant-garde release which resists any attempts to fit it into a single genre, but would be safe to say it's rooted in (post-)black metal more than in anything else. Surely, it's hard to make an opinion on such a complex and unorthodox music piece after a single listening, but I already can point out the best track on "Meta", which is "Mezolit". It's easily one of the best things to come from Thy Catafalque in the late few years, and it strongly reminds me of "Dreaming Neon Black" by Nevermore (one of my all-time progressive metal favourites), especially when it comes to the vocal work and the overall atmosphere. If I'm not mistaken, it features Gyula Vasvári of Perihelion on vocals, which is awesome too (I really liked his clean vocals on "Nap Fele Néz").
