From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars In 2003 a few young Italians witnessed a King Crimson gig, this was their starting point to make progressive music. With the support of the known Italian Cristiano Roversi (Moongarden, Submarine Silence and a project with singer Bernardo Lanzetti in CCLR) the four piece formation Catafalchi Del Cyber released their debut CD entitled Benediktus Und Vobis Quoque Catafalcus Est Tu (8 songs, running time around 41 minutes) in 2011.

What a pity that the singer at some moments sound like "John Wetton who has caught a cold", because instrumentally this band has a lot to offer in the alternating and varied compositions, from dreamy to fluent rhythms and bombastic eruptions. Listening to this album USA formation Holding Pattern comes to my mind, due to the fiery guitar and dynamic music.

Also interesting is the sound of the unsurpassed Mellotron, from celestial violins in Dark Degluation to breathtaking choirs in the awesome and varied final track Ipercomunismo Postaliend III (from spacey and prog to folk), what a joy for the Tron-maniacs!

This band has succeeded to deliver an interesting album (I don't consider this as Neo-Prog as PA has categorised) with lots of own musical ideas, unfortunately the music is not entirely instrumental but the mediocre vocals are not very present.

My rating: 3,5 star.
