XENTRIX picture
Xentrix was a British thrash metal band of the late 1980s/early 1990s hailing from Preston, Lancashire.

They had a small bit of controversy/publicity surrounding the release of the Ray Parker Jr. cover Ghostbusters in which the original artwork for the single had an unauthorised use of the Ghostbusters logo. The single was subsequently re-released using a different cover.

The band broke up after the release of Kin and reformed after a period of inactivity with a new vocalist in Simon Gordon and guitarist Andy Rudd to replace Chris Astley. This line up released 1996’s Scourge only.

The band briefly reformed with its original line-up for a small number of dates in the UK in the early part of 2006. One of these shows included support from Onslaught (band) and Evile. In September 2006 it was announced that the band was splitting up with no intention of reforming in the future.

XENTRIX For Whose Advantage?

Album · 1990 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Time Signature
Questions...

Genre: thrash metal

A thrash metal gemstone, "For Whose Advantage" is obviously inspired by the likes of Metallica and Testament. Still Xentrix manages to maintain a high degree of originality, delivering a bunch of songs that are rich in fast paced riffs as well as odd time signatures, unusual harmonies and other elements that fall under the umbrella of technical thrash metal.

This release is in many ways an essential thrash metal record, which captures many of the good things about thrash metal. The musicianship is top notch and there is a certain level of technicality, but still the music is quite aggressive. and with politically and socially conscious lyrics combined with Chris Astley's unrefined, yet oddly melodic vocals, "For Whose Advantage" would be for your advantage if you purchased it.

Recommended to any fan of thrash metal.

XENTRIX Scourge

Genre: groove/thrash metal

"Scourge" is the last album from underrated British thrash metal band, and with its focus on groove and heaviness it is stylistically a far cry from their first albums "Shattered Existence" and "Whose Advantage" which are more technical thrash metal records. However, one must remember that between these is "Kin", where Xentrix took the tempo down a knot or two, so, "Scourge" is very much a natural step in Xentrix' musical evolution. It also very much reflects a band struggling to find a new musical identity in a time when metal was not in, and - ironically - it also reflects the general evolutionary curve that thrash metal took in the wake of Pantera's success with groove metal and the onslaught of alternative metal.

"Scourge" is one of the better attempts by a thrash band at making more groovy metal because, after all, they do not abandon their thrash metal roots altogether as evidenced by riffage in tracks like "Incite" and "Strength of Persuasion" as wel as "Never Be" and "The Hand that Feeds Itself" (my favorites of the album). I also like Xentrix' approach to heavy and groovy metal on this album. Rather than trying to just copy Pantera (although there are a lot of Pantera-rip-off-ish things on this album), Xentrix try to add their own touch and blend in alternative metal and classic metal elements in with the groove, which can be heard in a track like "Caught You Living" which contains groove, technical riffage and rap... all in one song.

The major weakness of the album is that its energy quickly wanes away and gives the impression of limping music which should have been played faster (and this is a problem that many of the thrash-cum-groove metal bands of the late 90s had). In other words, this is another one of those album which are best served a couple of tracks at the time, because the individual tracks are pretty good.

The production is crisp and clean, and the bass drums have that characteristic 90s click sound. I think that this rather polished production is fine, because it allows you to pick out all the details, which is something I appreciate. Moreover, the music on this album does not really have the raw energy to carry a raw production.

So, not a bad album at all, and one of the better thrash-cum-groove metal albums. But "Scourge" does not measure up to the quality of Xentrix' previous releases. It is also historically interesting in that it very much reflects the state of flux that metal music found itself in in the mid 90s.
