Cenotaph - Promo 1996

Cenotaph (tur) - Promo 1996
Source of Suspicions
2) Life Immortal


It's new year and pretty much the same old tricks... though I decided to start off the year with a few atypical posts, first some Turkish brutal death metal and grind demos. Cenotaph from Turkey play brutal and gory sort of death/grind, as you can see from the unpleasant cover image I borrowed from Metal Archives. I got this recording from a tape trader as filler to a tape and that pretty much all the back story I have to give on this. I presume this tape was released right before their debut album.

Two quite short tracks of brutal gore death metal with a pretty good, clear demo sound and ripped from a mostly good dub. The sound drifts to one side a little on the 2nd track's beginning but gets back in line soon. Slow heavy parts aplenty, which is always good, are countered by bursts of speed. I suppose the sound could be a bit heavier but othewise I don't have much to complain even if this isn't really my cup of tea. My disinterest in gore probably affects my opinion here. Recommendable for death maniacs.

I've always been confused by the cover. Are those tumors?

I think they might be. Never studied medicine nor saw an actual, physical copy of the cover - though I doubt they'd tell the source of the image there.
