Dark Waters Rise, although suffering from weak production, turned out to be a vast improvement over the previous demo, and met with a fair amount of enthusiasm from listeners. Injected with mystical/Lovecraft inspired themes, Cephalectomy's unique style, eventually refered to by some as "Mystigrind" - resulted in their signing to Discorporate Music in 1999. On 2000's Sign of Chaos, Cephalectomy's first full length recording for Discorporate, the band continued onward in their pursuit of chaos, brutality and necronomic melody. Four years would pass before Cephalectomy would release their sophomore album Eclipsing The Dawn. The album proved to be above anything the band had produced to date, earning both critical praise and an international audience.
A gore-themed split cd with the band Bound In Human Flesh followed one year later. In 2008 Cephalectomy unleashed yet another release, an ambitious, single-track EP entitled The Dream Cycle Mythos. A release the band felt was fresh, true to their style, and exhibited their best work to date. With this release also came bassist Scott Armstrong, someone the band felt could really add to the mix and make the Cephalectomy experience that much more intense . Now in 2009, Cephalectomy brings forth their 3rd full length effort An Epitaph To Tranquility, an album the band feels is a bit "different" from their previous releases but still shares the same Cephalectomy qualities that fans would expect. This release brings an additional vocalist, Peter Mestre, who joined the band after doing guest vocals on their previous release, The Dream Cycle Mythos.
