Xentrix

Xentrix was one of a handful of British thrash bands that existed in the heyday of thrash (late eighties/early nineties), with with a style that fit perfectly alongside the leading Bay Area bands of the time, such as Forbidden and Testament. After four albums, the band broke up for awhile and then reformed in 1996, eventually releasing Scourge before disbanding again. They scored some minor publicity/controversy due to their cover of the Ghostbusters theme (the controversy surrounded their unauthorized use of the Ghostbusters logo on their EP, which was subsequently re-released with a different cover).

Long disbanded, they've announced their reunion in 2013.

Recent album: Bury The Pain, released on June 7, 2019.
