Thy Catafalque were born in 1998 in a small town of Hungary playing traditional, epic black metal in the beginning by tamás kátai (Gire) and János Juhász. Just after their first and only demo KaOtic Productions decided to release their first album in 1999 entitled Sublunary Tragedies, followed by the second record Microcosmos in 2001.

Throughout the passing years the music became more and more experimental with deep touches of electronic and folklorish influences feeding from their homeland in Central Europe. Meanwhile KaOtic Productions ceased to exist, so the third album Tűnő Idő Tárlat (An Exhibition of Vanishing Time) came to sunlight as a self-financed production in 2004. By this time lyrics turned into Hungarian and music turned out to be the most diverse and atmospheric experimentum coming out from the band. Cosmic music from micro to macro, from matter to spirit and then back into the ashes.

This world is about to be painted by more vivid colours in the latest release entitled Róka Hasa Rádió released by Epidemie Records on the 12th of May, 2009 and in November 2009 by Soyuz Music. The main concept behind the album is the relationship between the ever evolving, solid and massive physical matter and the fragileness of human and all living spirits throughout distant childhood memories and scientific explanations of nature. Revolving, rotating movements of past and future, colours, sounds, long lost scents by a strange transmission from a timeless radio.

Guest appearences by Zoltán Kónya and Balázs Hermann (Gire), Attila Bakos (Woodland Choir, Taranis), Ágnes Tóth (The Moon and the Nightspirit), Ádám Tóth (Mocun).

During the recordings Tamás Kátai left to Edinburgh, United Kingdom and finished the album there. Currently he is staying there.

After the very well appreciated Róka Hasa Rádió album, Epidemie Records decided to print a re-issue of the previous recording of Thy Catafalque entitled Tűnő Idő Tárlat. It had been released by the band itself in 2004 in a very small scale. Limited to 500 pieces of beautful digipak, the music is untouched while the artwork is renewed.

Thy Catafalque CDs are distributed by Lethal Conflict worldwide and Soyuz Music in Russia, Belorussia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

Originally released in 2004, Tűnő Idő Tárlat was re-released in limited digipak version by Epidemie Records in 2010.
