It was just 3 years ago when UK Thrash Metal act XENTRIX released their comeback album Bury The Pain. 23 years had passed since the world last heard new material from the group. Riding the success of that album, XENTRIX is back with their 7th studio album, Seven Words. The album is available through Listenable Records, and was produced by Andy Sneap (JUDAS PRIEST). Ahead of the album’s release I had the chance to speak with guitarist KRISTIAN HAVARD, who has been with XENTRIX since their debut album Shattered Existence in 1989.
