Scavenger, an oldschool Belgian heavy/speed metal band that released one album in 1985 Great for fans of Ostrogoth, Acid, and Crossfire.
Scavenger surfaced onto the scene after Deep Throat were forced to change their moniker in late 1984, due to the fact that a German band by the same name claimed the rights to the name.
In those days the Scavenger line-up included Jan Boeken (vocals), guitarists Marc Herremans (ex Backlsider) and Patrick Vanschooren (ex Wicked Widow),
Roger Roscam (bass) and Luc Ebinger (drums).
Back in November of 1984, on the evidence of their one and only demo, Deep throat already signed a deal for three albums with Mausoleum Records.
Scavenger played live at the Jagersborg venue in Maasmechelen on February 22nd 1985. Also in February of 1985 Scavenger began recording for their debut LP, which was
supposed to be entitled No Return. The recordings would continue, every once in a while, for some three months. Produced by Ward Kuczynski and guitarist Marc Herremans,
all recordings took place at Harry’s Studio in Heist-op-den-Berg. The mixing took place at the Shiva Studios in Brussels.
