#208 Today s Boondoggle with Kristian Havard of England s Thrash legends, Xentrix


In this episode Bill talks with Kristian Havard of Thrash Metal Legends, Xentrix. We talk about wanting to be George Lucas when he grew up and how much Star Wars impacted his life, the music scene in England, Early Metal influences, how begging his Dad to pay for studio time as a birthday gift created the demo that ended up getting them signed to a label, getting their videos on Headbangers Ball, touring Europe and dreaming of performing in the states, their connection to Black Sabbath, and why the band decided to call it quits before making a comeback in 2019. We also talk about the bond this band made over the years, their latest release Seven Words coming out in November on listenable records, the pain that is the vinyl printing backlog, and somewhat becoming George Lucas as the director and editor for their music videos today, plus so much more.
