Biography

There are atleast 3 artists with this name;


(1) Formed in 1985 in Preston, Lancashire, 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, 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 Junior’s Ghost Busters, scoring some controversy because of the Ghostbusters logo on their EP. The single was subsequently re-released using a different cover. The track was originally recorded for the BBC “Radio One Friday Rock Show” along with several others which remain unreleased. The success of this EP led to the recording of the band’s second LP for Roadrunner, which was issued in late 1990 under the title For Whose Advantage?. The music video for the title track was recorded.
