Event Details

The fourth band of the MTV HEADBANGER'S BALL TOUR 2022 tour is confirmed! The English XENTRIX! In November in ZLÍN!

VIO-LENCE, XENTRIX, WHIPLAH, ARTILLERY – 26. 11. 2022, ZLÍN, Masters of Rock Café

The "Triple Thrash Treat" was particularly popular on the show at the time, where three harder combos were featured in a row. This tour version with VIO-LENCE, WHIPLASH and ARTILLERY is already set for a triple thrash treat. XENTRIX from Great Britain will even turn this year's MTV Headbanger's Ball into a quadruple thrash treat.

VIO-LENCE from San Francisco, California complete the package perfectly and stand for the essence of Thrash Metal. The guys are descended from the second wave of Bay Area Thrashers of the 1980s, from whose ranks Robert Flynn was recruited, who founded Machine Head after his departure. VIO-LENCE are rather known for aggressive Thrash Metal without any technical gimmicks. Thrash as Thrash can. Without frills! They defined the genre with albums such as "Eternal Nightmare", "Oppressing The Masses" and "Nothing To Gain". Now they are back violently and brilliantly with new single "Flesh From Bone" and soon EP "Let The World Burn". A perfect headliner!

XENTRIX, who released their first album "Shattered Existence" in 1989, are new to the line-up. The well-known "Ghostbusters" MLP and the successful "For Those Advantage" album followed. They went on tour with Annihilator and Despair. Kin followed in 1992 and toured with Tankard. After that the band broke up and with a few brief interludes the band reunited in 2013 playing Bloodstock UK and a few shows with Overkill and Kreator. Since then the band has been doing what they love most:  playing live shows!

Although WHIPLASH hailing from New Jersey, but have absolutely nothing to do with the Bon Jovi sound. This thrashers set metal standards in the 80's and were well into the 90's as well. The title of the 1998 album "Thrashback" alone speaks for itself. Now it's time for a „thrashback“ again, when they hit the stages in their powerful power trio line-up.

ARTILLERY from Copenhagen command provide a certain European Thrash Metal note. Like their colleagues, the Danish come from THE Metal decade in general - the glorious 80s. With strong power and thrash metal, they've been back as strong as a rock since the end of the 90s and got involved in the mosh pit and the MTV Headbanger's Ball Tour.
