A BEAUTIFUL MIND

FROM BREAKNECK STINTS OF FROSTBITTEN TREMOLO TO SUMPTUOUS ORCHESTRAL SECTIONS, IT SEEMS THERE’S NO LIMIT TO THE IMAGINATION OF THY CATAFALQUE CREATOR TAMÁS KÁTAI. TERRORIZER UNRAVELS THE COMPLEX DYNAMICS OF GENRE-DEFYING LATEST ‘META’

“I would love to create an album with a constant mood but it’s not easy for me because I’m unconsciously drawn to very diverse things,” comments Thy Catafalque mastermind Tamás Kátai of the expansive but oftentimes unpredictable creative instincts that have sustained this mind-boggling musical entity since its distant beginnings as a black metal outfit back in 1999. As a classically trained multi-instrumentalist who operates in genres as diverse as extreme metal, traditional folk and chamber music, it’s no surprise that variety forms such an integral feature of Tamás’s genre-crossing compositional brain. But while the cold and endlessly contorting strains of 2014’s ‘Sgùrr’ may have dazzled many a critic with its ingenious melange of influences, the painstaking making of this lauded outing proved to be anything but seamless.

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s always a pleasure to feature Darkthrone on the cover of Terrorizer. They are a truly reliable band that not only continue to deliver utterly awesome songs, but fly the flag for the metal underground. New album ‘Artic Thunder’ doesn’t disappoint and we hope you’ll enjoy our cover feature as much as I enjoyed reading it when it landed in my inbox. September is always a time when the music industry recovers from the summer festivals and starts to look forward to closure on the year, and believe it or not, start to think about 2017 and next year’s releases. On the horizon there’s new albums from a newly reformed The Obsessed and Obituary just to whet your appetite already. Next year marks the 30th anniversary of Celtic Frost’s ‘Into The Pandemonium’, so I hope to see some kind of reissue. Noise/Tom G – if you’re reading! In the meantime, the rest of the year will see an awesome line-up at this year’s Damnation Festival in Leeds and a fuck load more releases to look forward to – including amazing albums by Venom Prison, 40 Watt Sun, Lucifer’s Chalice and The Dillinger Escape Plan, to name just a few. I’ve also just finished reading former Cro-Mags bassist Harley Flanagan’s biography which is utterly fantastic. It’s out at the end of this month, we’ll be bringing you an interview next issue...
