Cenotaph

Produced in 1989 by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Corchado, Cenotaph was among Mexico’s first death steel rings. After circulating their initial demonstration to great response in the steel underground, and launching two EPs (1990’s Tenebrous Apparitions and 1991’s The Eternal Disgrace) through Brazil’s Distorted Tranquility Information, the group — today also offering guitarists Guillermo Hérnandez and César Sánchez, and drummer Oscar Clorio — agreed upon with Mexico’s very own Horus Information for the discharge of 1992’s The Gloomy Representation of Our Hidden Sorrows record. However when Corchado instantly departed to create rival music group the Chasm, Cenotaph had been tossed into disarray, departing lone staying member Clorio to get the pieces and finally orchestrate a comeback by using new associates Edgardo Gonzalez (vocals), Julio Viterbo (electric guitar) and Fernando Garcilazo (bass). This lineup was in charge of both 1994’s Traveling Our Dark Oceans and 1996’s Epic Rites — and Cenotaph effectively split up once and for all, save for a short come back via 2002’s Saga Belica L.P. Take note: A totally different black steel band known as Cenotaph surfaced out of Turkey a couple of years later.
