Back in the Real World
If you ask me, there are 3 reasons why Xentrix never got popular:
1. Their most well-known song is a cover of "Ghostbusters".
2. They're from England (go ahead and name 1 really good English thrash band).
3. Their name is Xentrix. I mean come on.
Anyway, while not consistently great, they can be very good at times, delivering workhorse thrash that sounds not unlike a more generic version of the bay area stuff (Exodus, Testament, and of course Metallica). Solid production too, which is kind of rare for these third-tier thrash bands.
This is their debut. I really think you're gonna like it.
