Avant-Garde entity Thy Catafalque will be releasing its tenth masterpiece, ‘Vadak,’ on June 25!

Hungarian mastermind Tamás Kátai comments: “‘Köszöntsd a hajnalt’ means ‘Greet the Dawn’ and it features Martina Horváth on vocals and although the song has some folky vibes, we used redpipes here which is a sort of electronic pipes, delivered by Andrei Oltean.”
