SCAVANGER - BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE SEA
ROCK IT UP RECORDS
Metal To Infinity
a mysterious intro, bombastic and searching for a climax, this album takes off.
Scavanger is a band from Germany and since ages this is the Mecca if we talk
about Metal. Germany never lost its leading role in the scène, like the US was
forced too and so one after another German band releases their album. To be
clear; this is the band’s debut and they found a ‘save place’ at Rock It
of what we call Teutonic Metal will easily like this band. Grave Digger, Running
Wild, Sinner, Stormwitch and hundreds of others have played this kind of Metal
before and so it’s pretty obvious Scavanger isn’t at all an original band.
The arrangements are pretty predictable and all the time you’ll have the
feeling that the climax will never come. It won’t after all, this ain’t the
kind of band that is able to take you by the throat nor are they as good as the
original bands in this typical German style.
it is clear some true Metal fans are member of Scavanger. Influenced by the
bigger bands like Accept and Iron Maiden (an important slice of NWOBHM
influences can be heard) they deliver the listener one after another decent
song. None of these musicians have exceptional skills but that doesn’t mean
they’re not able to please the listener with some great Heavy Metal. This is
the kind of band you’d like to see on a True Metal fest before the favorite
ones arrive on stage. It will fill your time, will attend you to what happens on
stage and keep you into the venue.
suppose it’s clear that Scavanger is to me a middle of the road band, an
honest meaning I hope no one will be shocked. Nevertheless they’re worth
