Hungary, 2011, progressive metal / avant-garde metal

Thy CatafalqueRengeteg

I’m not a metal aficionado, so I can’t speak to influences and styles and what came before and what they’re building on here. All I know is I like the melodic speed of this recording. I like how they’re not afraid to use keyboards and bold symphonic elements. Bringing in echoing, ethereal female vocals is always a big plus in my book, too. The black metal vocals are used sparingly, more like as garnish, and thus having pity on my poor nerves.
