Cenotaph represent one of the few examples of Mexican Heavy Metal, indeed, one of the few Mexican Death Metal bands. Forming in 1989 with the original line-up of founding members Daniel Corchad(vocals),Julio Viterbo (guitar), Pala (guitar), Curro (bass) and Oscar Clorio (drums) to release The Gloomy Reflection Of Our Hidden Sorrows (1992). But original vocalist Daniel Corchado left after to move on to Incantation, and then The Chasm to be replaced by Edgardo Gonzalez. Most of Cenotaph's material was rooted in old-school Death Metal with screeching vocals that became evident with the follow-up releases of Riding On Black Oceans (1994) and Epic Rites (9 Epic Tales Of Death Rites) (1996). By the release of Saga Belica (2002) the band had returned after several years in purgatory to feature the return of Gonzalez and Clorio with all new string section of Samuel Ocadiz (guitar) and Eduardo Guevara (guitar). They disbanded in 2002.
