Hailing from the North West of England, Xentrix was formed in 1985 by guitar player Chris Astley. 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, including a trip to Japan for Japanese Assault Festival, everything was going well until a certain Worldwide Lockdown brought things to a halt. Xentrix took it upon themselves to use this time as an opportunity to write new songs, culminating in 2022 with Seven Words. A tour with Vio-lence followed round Europe as well as an appearance at Bloodstock Open Air in the UK and Hellfest in Clisson, France. More UK dates followed and 2023 into 2024 is looking very busy for Xentrix, with more writing and gigs happening. Another album is expected in 2025.
