"Thy Catafalque takes its electronic layered structure and theme building approach from Space, but this Hungarian band is a lot less withdrawn than Space, pouring more of the personality into the songs. Synthesizers, keyboards, programmed rhythms, some of them outright dance and techno, the listener never has a feeling of some computer geek twiddling the knobs. The harsh vocals are minimal and buried in the background, but rich and luscious melodies rule the world of Tuno Ido Tarlat. The complexity of layering the million things into a one song cut also has me drawn to it, like a moth to a fire, discovering something new with every listen." (MetalReviews/Alex)
"Every aspect of this album is incorporated flawlessly into the mix, there isn't a single weak point to be found on this album at all, it's perfect. This is an album that isn't afraid to break the boundaries of metal and to traverse into new, unexplored territories, this album truly is avant-garde and experimental and it should be heard by all who crave new ideas and originality in music. Avant-garde fans will absolutely adore this album, it really is that good. This is an album you listen to when you're bored of metal because it no doubt will revitalize your interest in the scene." (Nokturnal Wrath)
