Cenobita's history begins in 1993, in México City, from the ashes of an alternative band named Nefelheim, where Claus Bita (machinery and vox) and Omar Flo (vox) met. Due to the mutual interest for electronic music the band was born. Cenobita use extensive distorted guitars, with percusive sequences, violent rythms and melodic tunes, all set in a crossover style. The distorted, acid texture, irritating and shredding voice was the best way to describe cyberpunk themes. William Gibson's cyberpunk concepts, precepts and knowledge, has always been the deepest influence, and his novel "Neuromancer" is considered the band's bible. Industrial-electro acts like Skinny Puppy, Throbbing Gristle, Front Line Assembly, Einstürzende Neubauten, Leæther Strip, Mentallo and The Fixer, :wumpscut:, yelworC, etc., have been a musical influence for Cenobita.
