Cenotaph (1988-1989, 1989-1998, 2000-2002, 2018-present): a Death Metal band from Mexico City, Mexico.
Forming in 1989 from the ashes of Damned Cross, a band who had existed for only one year (1988) to release a couple of demos, founding members Daniel Corchad (vocals), Julio Viterbo(guitar), Pala (guitar), Curro (bass) and Oscar Clorio (drums) reformed 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 only to reform again in 2018 under the membership of Oscar Clorio (drums), César Sánchez (guitars), Edgardo González (vocals), Julio Viterbo (guitars) and Alexis Aguilar (bass; joining in 2019).
