Xentrix

English thrash metal band / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Xentrix (pronounced "zen-tricks") are an English thrash metal band from Preston, Lancashire.[1] The band were formed in 1984 under the name Sweet Vengeance.[1] They changed their name to Xentrix in 1988,[2] and released four albums – Shattered Existence (1989), For Whose Advantage? (1990), Kin (1992) and Scourge (1996) – before splitting up in 1997.[2] After briefly reuniting in 2005–2006, Xentrix reunited once again in 2013, and released their first album in 23 years, Bury the Pain, in 2019.[3] As part of the underground metal scene of the late 1980s and early-to-mid 1990s, Xentrix have been referred to as one of the "big four" of English thrash metal, along with Acid Reign, Onslaught and Sabbat.[4][5]
