Cenotaph - _Pseudo Verminal Cadaverium_
(United Guttural Records, 2003)
by: Xander Hoose (4.5 out of 10)
Not to be confused with the Brazilian Cenotaph, this four-piece hails from Turkey, where the death and black scenes seem to be on the rise. With _Pseudo Verminal Cadaverium_ being their third album already, I find it hard to grasp why there is still a demand for it. Cenotaph's style of gore-death is not just uncompromising in its brutality, but unfortunately also in its lack of originality. Though heavily borrowing from early Carcass material and with some slight references to Fleshgrind, there is nothing wrong with _PVC_'s technical capabilities. The vocals are a whole different deal, however: it's not just that they sound uninspiring, at times they sound so horrible it feels like Cenotaph is a parody of other gore bands. I'd rather listen to Carcass or pop my Sickening Gore album in the player than listen to this one again.
