SCAVENGER SIGN TO SENTINEL RECORDS
We can finally announce that we have signed to the Irish Metal
Label, Sentinel Records - [www.sentinelrecords.com].

Co. Meath and it has been recently mixed and mastered by Stuart
Anstis. Launch date will be announced shortly and there will
be a gig to coincide with it.
We have changed the address and look of our website. You can now
access it through the address www.scavenger.ie. Site is still going
through construction, so updates will be added regularly. Guestbook, links and photos still to be added.
SONGS NEARLY COMPLETE - Feb 25th
Right now, we're finishing off a few touches on the songs and
getting them ready for recording. We go into the studio on the 22nd
March and hopefully finish up on the 5th/6th April. Artwork for
the album is being prepared also and that will be in its final stages
real soon. Duplication will be set up in about two weeks. All in
all, were hoping to have it released by the end of May.
QUICK NEWS UPDATE
Well its been ages since I updated the site but anyway, here's
what has briefly happened since the last time. The Glenside Metal
Meeting was a good auld laugh. We were 3rd on the bill so we finished
early and since we had a gig the next night in Monaghan, we had
to left at about eight. We enjoyed it anyways and it was great to
meet some heads from MetalIreland. Monaghan was great - Halloween
and we all got pissed before we went on!! Great night, and great
laugh had with fellow Drogheda band Carraig!! Thanks to Marty and
Stephen from Writhe for the gig - Cheers!! Temple Bar Music Centre
followed this!! We got a great live recording of this gig which
hopefully I'll have up here to download soon, or ye can email for
a copy of it (includes Black Sabbath Medley). Had a few gigs in
the Temple too, in Dublin, cheers Sam and Carl (Atomic Drop) for
the gigs - we'll see yiz in December. Our next two gigs, the 20th
and 21st of December are our last before we head into the studio
to record our second album. So for the last while, we've been getting
down to the grind stone and writing some tunes!! The next release
will probably contain 6 tracks - this time we will have artwork
done for the cover!! Well that sums it up really - cheers, and thanks
for visiting the website!!!

ROSETTA, BELFAST - 27th SEPT.
We headlined a gig in the Rosetta, Belfast with Inner Peace
Project and Hexxed. It was our first time seeing Hexxed live and
speaking for myself, they blew me away. Excellent band. Hope to
get them down to Drogheda for a gig or two. Andy, cheers for the
great sound that you always achieve. Thanks to all the mad northern
metalheads up banging away for our set. YOU FUCKIN RULE!!! Thanks
to Ronan for the transport. And last but not least, Mr. Magners,
thanks for the support and keepin us all amused!!! haha!!! Cheers
Ritchie. Thanks also to Taz and James (Moshpit) for the gig and

We've just been writing a few new songs for our next recording.
So far we have included two of the new songs in our recent live
sets - Daydreams in Dystopia and On The Outside (Looking
in). These songs were included in our live set in Belfast
at the Rosetta which we recorded. The recording will be available
soon to download in the Multimedia section.
DUBLIN, CORK AND BELFAST
9th August - Fibbers, Dublin:
Support came from Black Art Principle who played a stormer of
a set, even though they had problems with their amps before playing.
Nice one lads!! We got a good reception from the Fibbers crowd,
especially towards the end of the set as we played Revelations (Maiden)
and a medley of Black Sabbath songs that lasted 20 mins. Cheers
Sam for organising the night.
10th August - Fred Zeppelins, Cork:
We headed down to Cork with the Black Art boys to play Freds.
We all really enjoyed this night. The turn up wasn't the best, but
we had a laugh with the monaghan boyos. Good to meet Snare and co.
Thanks to Freds for the great night.
11th August - Rosetta, Belfast:
The lineup for this gig was Condemned, Scavenger, Aftermath,
Linus, Inner Peace Project. All these bands were great. Condemned
were impressive as usual. We played a set that contained two new
songs we had just wrote. We also recorded the gig on mini-disc.
Sounds well!!! The night overall? great sound, great bands, great
venue, great night. There's a review of the gig in the reviews section.
Check it out [here].
Cheers Andy for the gig. We hope we can play there again real soon.

GARDAI ATTEMPT TO STOP SCAVENGER GIG (Jun
June 14th, McHughs, Drogheda - Support band Fallen played Metallica
and Slayer covers such as Fade to Black and Master of Puppets to
South of Heaven and Raining Blood. Cheers to Fallen for playing
a great gig. Scavenger got interrupted at the start of their set
when the Gardai warned the owner of McHughs that there was a lot
of under age drinking going on and that it must be stopped. The
pub had to be evacuated so that all people could then be asked for
id when coming back in. Fortunately, most people got back in and
we're grateful for those people who stood in the rain and came back
and didn't piss off. Sorry to all the other guys who didn't get
in. We'll make it up to you. We're trying to book the Drogheda Arts
Centre (who won't let us play there still!!), so when we do we'll
let you know and we'll destroy the fucking place. Thanks again to
everyone who came and thanks to Ritchie for the great sound he gave
us on the night.
