Formed in 1988, British thrashers Xentrix (pronounced "Zen-tricks") began their careers by playing metal covers before focusing all of their efforts on coming up with original material.Initially known as Sweet Vengeance (they recorded an unreleased four-song demo under that name and sent it out to labels and magazines), guitarist/vocalist Chris Astley, guitarist Kristian Havard, drummer Dennis Gasser and bassist Paul Mackenzie created enough of a stir through their live performances that the English branch of Roadrunner Records took notice and signed the group in January 1989.The band's debut album, Shattered Existence, produced by John Cuniberti, was released later that year to an overwhelming press response in England, where Xentrix were hailed as heroes. A bunch of scattered live performances followed with the band embarking on their first headlining UK tour in May 1990.To coincide with the tour, the quartet issued a brand new three-song EP featuring a cover of Ray Parker Jr's "Ghostbusters", scoring some controversy because of the Ghostbusters logo on their EP. The success of this EP led to the recording of the band's second LP for Roadrunner, which, issued in late 1990 under the title For Whose Advantage?.Immediately following the album's release, the band hit the touring trail again, this time venturing over to Europe for the first time as support to label mates Annihilator. Later, Xentrix entered Loco Studios in South Wales to record two brand new tracks, "Pure Thought" and "Shadows Of Doubt", which were later released in EP form along with three live numbers recorded in their hometown in 1991. At the end, the band recorded a three-track demo in 1995 with Chris on vocals, and then shortly after he left the band.
Scourge is the fourth studio album by British thrash metal band Xentrix. It was released sometime during 1996 through Heavy Metal Records.It is the only album to feature vocalist Simon Gordon and guitarist Andy Rudd.These guys have been gone now, for almost as long as they were around. None of the members to my knowledge have resurfaced in any other groups on any musical collaborations. And thats too bad because these guys were a better than average thrash band. This particular metal offering, known to us as "Scourge" is a great thrash album with lots of chunking guitars...origional sounding vocals and amazing sounding kick drums. All the songs on this album are good to great...the only problem with this album is there is not much of a tempo change. Seriously it almost sounds like this entire album was written without a drummer and only a metornome and a guitar. Yes there are a few double time beats on certain bridge parts to some songs...but overall there is no real double bass asskicking "False Ideals" type songs on this one. That being said though...this album is still a great metal offering and their really isn't much compromise in reference to the thrash metal roots...I recommend this album to anyone who likes the following songs...(you can figure out the artists) Long time dyin', The small hours, 5 minutes alone, Heathen's song...and stuff like that. I dig it and i think that its worth owning!
