Chaos Records releases the second reissue of the classic Mexican Death Metal band Cenotaph. 'Riding Our Black Oceans' is a landmark album in this style, where aggression meets melodies and the result is a contrasting war of emotions. Never before has melody in music been so powerfully channelled and it must be considered that this was released way back in 1994. Not only was this an extremely influential album for the scene back then, it remains a standout album even today, what with its music remaining powerful and challenging and ever so evocative. This is considered a classic not just in Mexico but all over the world.

'Riding Our Black Oceans' has been remastered and presented in a new layout with a limited edition of 1000 copies only. You can't miss out on this eternal gem of Death Metal music bound to enthrall you for ages to come. The facets are ever revealing, slowly unravelling themselves with each listen. It's an intricate album with powerful and fragile emotions put together.

Comes with an 12-page booklet featuring artwork and lyrics for all tracks....
