Over the period of two days, I listened to all four of their albums. I really enjoyed the first two. Kin was kind of hit or miss for me. Nowhere near as aggressive as SE or FWA, and Scourge was a bit, um, different. I didn't dislike it, but next time I listen to it, I may have to pretend it doesn't have the name Xentrix plastered on the album cover.

What about the rest of ye?

I agree. SE and FWA are awesome and (imo) can stand up to other thrash band's 2 consecutive cds.
Love both of these and spin them often.
But after those two I couldn't get into their albums.

Love the first two, never heard anything else. I spent $15 used for both of them because they were out-of-print. Little did I know they were to have a re-issue not long aftewards. However, they were worth it.

This was a band I never could get really into. Could have been to vocals they was the deal breaker for me as I thought they were not my cup of tea.

Classic case of don't try to break out big doing a cover song. Made me think of them as a novelty act. Took a bit before I gave them a chance. Of course love the first two but I'm also a fan of Scrouge too. Kin I'm not as big on. Just has never done much for me.

I only own For Whose Advantage, which i consider to be among my top 10 Thrash albums ever.

The title track's intro is breathtaking.

I own both the debut, Shattered Existence and For Whose Advantage.

Both are really good underrated thrash albums. In both cases the vocalist reminds me a bit of Hetfield's voice as it sounded on Justice. Both albums are awesome and have a ton of catchy songs.

The Ghost Busters theme they covered doesn't do this band any justice imo. It is too quirky and it doesn't really fit their original sound. It's not a bad cover but it's something you'd expect from a youtuber to cover on guitar or something.

Not familiar with their albums after For Whose Advantage...

I like them. Their first 3 are very solid albums. The only one of their's I don't have is Scourge.

If you can, get Shattered Existence as IMO, it is even better, if not equally as good.

I'm trying to, but it's almost impossible to find. It took me 5 years to find a copy of For Whose Advantage.

For Whose Advantage is a masterpiece! The others are hit and miss for me.

I only have Shattered Existance and For Whose Advantage. I think I liked them both pretty well. Might have to give them a fresh spin and see if one trumps the other.

I know I like them well enough to keep Kin and Scourge on my want-list after all this time. Someday I'll get around to tracking them down.

Picked up scourge a while ago. I can't seem to get into it. Probably the band's weakest...

Don't expect another FWA though.

I'm not. That's why I haven't been actively searching for it. If I come across it and the price is right, I'll snag it.

I always thought it was a wacky British humor play on the word "Eccentrics" (pronounced Ex-En-Tricks), but I've heard people pronounce it as "Zen-Tricks" too. I'm not sure which is correct.

I thought I read in an interview that the band said they just made the name up and their was no real meaning behind the name. Just something they came up with.
