Performer: Xentrix Album: For Whose Advantage Label: Metal Mind Productions. Xentrix - представители редкого вида (ныне, фактически, исчезнувшего) "британский трэш-метал". Альбом вышел в очень неудачное время - в начале 90х трэш, прямо скажем, начал загибаться. Но альбом очень хорош.

For Whose Advantage" is a neat album. Released by Xentrix in 1990, this was a thrash album which fused elements of progressive metal as well. While this approach of blending genres is not entirely unheard of, they do it in a way that is more effective than most, leading to a satisfying end result. Many bands make attempts to fuse 'x genre' with 'y genre', leading to elements appearing from 'y genre', but feeling tacked on and contrived
