Avenger (1983-1985) is a NWOBHM band from Newcastle, UK.


vanger emerged in 1983 with Brian Ross (vocals) and Mick Moore (bass; both ex-Blitzkrieg) at the helm. Adding Gary Young (drums) and Lee Cheetham (guitar) they would release their debut 45 Too Wild To Tame, later that same year. Trading places with Ian Swift (of Satan) Ross left prior to the completion of their debut full length Blood Sports (1984). With American Greg Reiter taking over the empty guitar spot once held by Cheetham they released their second set, Killer Elite, (1985). American Darren Kurland then replaced Young on drums but the band split shortly after when Swift swiftly left to join Atomkraft.

Footnote: Do not confuse this act with the German act Rage that originally went under the name Avenger.
