Cenotaph joined the vocabulary of extreme metalheads after showing up on the Pantalgia compilation in 1992, but was known to tape traders before then as a Mexican band with a distinct style of heavy primitive death metal that was nonetheless discursive and spirited.
This re-issue on 10″ LP includes the 1990 7″ EP Tenebrous Apparitions and the same form from 1991 with The Eternal Disgrace. These show the band during the formation of its style as it arose from the ashes of Damned Cross, its previous name, and as it refined its style during the era leading up to its formative The Gloomy Reflections of Our Hidden Sorrows.
