Информация о артисте

В свое время эта команда вкупе со Slammer и Re-Animator считалась британским ответом на волну американского трэша.

Прообразом этой команды из Престона является группа "Sweet Vengeance", в которой Крис Эстли со своими школьными приятелями развлекался в середине 80-х годов. Кадровые перестановки в ней были обычным делом, и только по окончании учебы Крису удалось собрать первый стабильный состав. Помимо самого Эстли (вокал, гитара), в коллектив также вошли Кристиан Хавард (гитара), Пол Маккензи (бас) и Деннис Гассер (ударные). Взяв ориентацию на трэш калифорнийского розлива, парни играли от случая к случаю в клубах, а также сделали парочку пробных записей. Одна из песен того периода ("Black mail") даже попала на сборник "Full Force", выпущенный фирмой "Ebony Records".

Свой первый значительный шаг группа совершила, заключив договор с менеджерской конторой "B.A.D. Management". Ребята там оказались толковые и смогли организовать своим подопечным контракт с "Roadrunner Records". Лейбл также проявил большой интерес к музыкантам и занимался их делами достаточно ответственно. Обретя под ногами твердую почву, коллектив решил отметить это событие сменой вывески и переименовался в "Xentrix".

Для записи дебютного альбома "Roadrunner" нанял известного американского продюсера Джона Кьюниберти ("Forbidden", Joe Satriani). "Shattered Existence" вызвал кучу положительных откликов, и "Xentrix" стали очень популярны в клубной среде Великобритании. В поддержку альбома коллектив провел домашние гастроли в компании с "Sabbat", после чего отправился в студию записывать EP "Ghostbusters". Кавер на одноименную песню Рэя Паркера добавил команде изрядную порцию популярности и стал ее концертным фаворитом. Правда здесь не обошлось без небольшого скандала, поскольку компания "Columbia Pictures" потребовала изъять из продажи диск с изображением логотипа фильма "Ghostbusters". Музыкантам пришлось пойти на уступки киношному монстру и обложку переделали на другой вариант.

Второй альбом, "For whose advantage?", был сделан по той же схеме, что и его предшественник. Единственное отличие состояло в том, что на сей раз музыканты помимо собственного материала исполнили кавер гиллановской "Running white faced city boy". Сразу по выходу диска "Xentrix" совершили первый европейский вояж, сопровождая "Annihilator".

Вернувшись домой, коллектив записал пару новых композиций, на которых постарался несколько изменить свой саунд. Потом к ним было добавлено несколько концертных треков, и все это вышло в виде EP "Dilute to taste". Эксперименты со звуком были продолжены на третьем альбоме, на котором, воспользовавшись помощью клавишника Карла Арнфельда, "Xentrix" уже заметно удалились от чисто трэшевого саунда. Выпустив на "Roadrunner" последний сингл ("The order of chaos"), команда совершила необдуманный шаг и расторгла договор как с лейблом, так и с менеджментом. Сделано это было с целью перебраться под крыло более солидной фирмы, которая смогла бы вывести "Xentrix" на международную арену.

Однако уже после первого демо, записанного в состоянии полной независимости, иллюзии развеялись как дым. Группе было сделано всего лишь одно предложение – от крошечного лейбла "Heavy Metal Records". Разочарованный Эстли заявил о своем уходе, а остальные музыканты решили попытать счастья еще разок. Заменив Криса вокалистом Саймоном Гордоном и гитаристом Энди Раддом, они все же выпустили один альбом. Однако по причине низкого бюджета "Scourge" никакой раскрутки не получил, и проект вскоре распался. Read more on Last.fm.

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.

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 on Dilute to Taste EP along with three live numbers recorded in their hometown in 1991.

In 1992 the band decided to take a different direction with their album Kin, adopting a more progressive style with their music.. A music video was filmed for the album's opening track The Order of Chaos and received some airplay on MTV, the band would later release an EP of the same name. After a European tour supporting German band Tankard, the band returned to the United Kingdom to play what would be their final tour with Chris Astley at the helm. Astley finally left the band after recording a demo of a number of new songs, some of which ended up on Scourge, released in 1996.

The band then reformed after a period of inactivity with a new vocalist, Simon Gordon, and guitarist, Andy Rudd. This line up released 1996's Scourge only before disbanding due to lack of interest from the United Kingdom's then dwindling metal scene.

The band briefly reformed with its classic 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 and Evile. In September 2006 it was announced that the band was splitting up with no intention of reforming in the future.

On February 4th, 2013, it was announced via Evile's Facebook page that Xentrix would be joining Kreator and Evile for a three-show UK tour in late April. The lineup for Xentrix remains unclear and no further announcements have been made yet.

(3) Xentrix is a also a twenty seven year old self taught Drum and Bass producer from Lampeter in West Wales. After DJing at events from 2001 onwards, it was April 2008 he decided to turn his hand to producing. Having never used any form of music production equipment before he spent the first year learning and experimenting, then creating a constant stream of material month after month.

He was first introduced to Drum and Bass at the age of 13 with Goldie’s ‘Timeless’, and then 2 years later with Roni Size album ‘New Forms’. Having elements of his tracks compared to ‘New Forms’, he feels this is high praise for this stage in his career.

Enjoying the organic sound of real instruments, XentriX takes influence from every genre and era of music.Listening to a wide variety from thrash metal to jazz, he feels with his tracks he is “Working one genre inside another”.

In mid 2009 he started to have airplay on internet radio shows, originating in the UK, Portugal and the US. Quickly building a growing fan base.
