3 stars Catweazle is one of the most unknown and in same time obscure neo prog bands coming from Scandinavia, more precise Sweden. They had a meteoric career, formed around early '90's and disbanded after they release their only single album in 1996 named Ars Moriendi or The art of dying, issued at small label APM (Ad Perpetuam Memoriam). Well this is kinda of a neo prog not very consistent in arrangements , little pale in comparation with other names from this genre but in the end not bad, at least for me. I was surprised to see such low rated, understandable this is the kind of neo prog to be listen only for fans only and I don't think many of them will be pleaseat entirely. Similar with their country fellow Twin Age or Masque, Catweazle delivers some good moments here like the instrumental Gulag, Walk on waves with the nice keybords and pleasent parts or Sun Tannes in the shadows is another worthy track, the rest are only ok nothing great nothing really bad. Btw Ars Moriendi is a concept allbum focused around a man and his problems who apper because was trapped in the russian Gulag (in many ways is quite the same with Auschwitz ), death, lost of human dignity, terrors is all about here but puted in a nicear mood the neo music gives to this album a pleasent vibration musicaly speaking. All in all a forgotten album and band aswell, not many heard about it, is understandeble yhe album is fairly ok but not breaking any grounds in their field. 3 stars from me, is ok and is just about it, strange cover art.
