[Album of the Month: January]

Continuing their catalog of consistent artistic reinvention, Thy Catafalque's 10th studio album is an elegant culmination of orchestral, jazz, traditional folk and metal with familiar conceptual elements of Hungarian folklore, delivered in an atmospherically dense, meticulously arranged cacophony.
