Hailing from the North West of England, Xentrix was formed in 1985 by guitar player Chris
After numerous changes to the line up Xentrix signed to Roadrunner records and entered
the studio to record their first album 'Shattered Existence' with producer John Cuniberti
The nineties then saw them move to the forefront of the British Thrash movement following
the release of the 2nd album 'For Who's Advantage'. The title track video became a regular
on the playlist for MTV's Headbangers Ball.
The legendary Tommy Vance of the BBC Radio 1’s Friday Rock Show brought Xentrix to
Maida Vale studios in London to record a session for the show where they included
a thrash version of the 'Ghostbusters' theme tune, which was already a favourite with
stage divers at their live shows.
Xentrix returned to full activity in 2017 for a storming Bloodstock Festival show with Jay
Walsh (Bull-Riff Stampede) newly appointed at the helm.
Through the closing months of 2018 the final recording work for the new Xentrix album
'Bury the Pain' was completed. With production from Andy Sneap and Mastering by Russ
Russell, this new recording has the band sounding heavier than ever, while still retaining
their signature sound.
With the release of 'Bury the Pain' on Listenable Records and dates booked into
2020, Xentrix are fired up and ready for the next chapter to begin.
