Xentrix - return of British thrash legends! On tour with Kreator and Evile in April!

British thrashers Xentrix return to action with a handful of live dates as special guests for Kreator and Evile in April as well as the promise of new material!

The band have had numerous offers to reform over the years but original singer Chris Astley always declined and as guitarist Kristian Harvard states ‘without him it wasn't really Xentrix’. Astley has since had a change of heart and the promise of recording new material has prompted him to return to the fold and bring back one of the UK’s best loved thrash bands.

Originally thrust into the public eye in the late ‘80’s after their demo received a five K review in Kerrang which in turn caught the attention Roadrunner records, Xentrix soon found themselves in the studio making ‘Shattered Existence’.

Of course their now infamous cover of ‘Ghostbusters’ remains a firm favourite with fans old and new as does the band’s phenomenal second album ‘For Whose Advantage?’, an album regarded as a bonafide thrash classic.

The band went onto enjoy a short but successful career that saw them share stages with Slayer, Testament, Sepultura, Annihilator, Sabbat, Tankard and Skyclad before calling it a day in 1996 having become disillusioned with the UK metal scene.
