Biography

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 (with the ghost flicking a V Sign). 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.
