Leave Scars

2005: Leave Scars is founded by Kristof “Dizzy” Van Eyck (vocals) and Filip “Mo6” Verstappen (lead/rhythm guitar) when they decided to quit the fun-metalband D.O.A. They wanted to start an old school thrash metal band and found a drummer in Kris “Uncle” Boenders (ex-Unusual, ex-Disobedient, ex-Hard Resistance) who actually is Kristof’s uncle. On bass they recruted Frederick Peeters from Sanitarium, a Metallica tribute band where both Kristof and Kris played in. 
2006: A year full of rehearsels, writing numbers and seeking their own sound results in a local gig as support for a Dutch black metal band. A few months later, Frederick Peeters left the band and Yves Neefs (Sanitarium) picked up the bass.
2007: The first demo “Unit731” was recorded with Kristof on bass and Yves Neefs on lead/rhythm guitar. This demo contains 6 old school thrash metal songs and 1 hidden track named “Shower”. 
2007/2008: During this time, they’ve played in several metal venues to promote the new demo.
2009: They entered the Belgian edition of the Wacken Open Air Metal Battle wich they’ve won and got a ticket to play at the biggest metal festival of Europe. 1 week before W.O.A., they played at Metal Over Oostrozebeke where the crowd went wild. They’ve also been headlining some local festivals and venues.
2010: Yves Neefs decides to leave the band and Paul Aerts (ex-Unusual, ex-Soultaker) is recruted as new lead/rhythm guitar player. New songs were written and in July they played as support for Violator and Fueled By Fire in Gent.
2011: Filip “Mo6” Verstappen leaves the band due to other interrests and Kristof decides to focus more on his vocals. Mathias “Ath” Annys (Warbeast Remains) is hitting the bass from now on and a few months later, Djoni Tregub (Temptations For The Weak) joined the band as lead/rhythm guitar player. Finally, Leave Scars was complete and starts writing new songs.
2012: They’ve played some local shows and headlined the Highland Games in Essen. In August, the recordings of the new demo cd started. 
2013: “The Arrival” is released and after a few weeks, the track “Trapped” appears on the Compilation cd “Metal Gageleer: The Compilation”. At the same time they got in contact with Benny from Metal Over Oostrozebeke and Nathan McLeod from Malevolence Records©.The tracks “Trapped” and “The Arrival” are released on “Perseverance 2013 Compilation Cd”. In March they’ve enterred the RedBull BedroomJam competition to win a gig at Graspop Metal Meeting, Belgium’s biggest metal festival. They’ve won the finals at Trix Antwerp and played June 27th as opening band on GMM2013. In the next few months, Leave Scars will perform at several venues and metal festivals (Frietrock, DVG IndoorFest,…) in Belgium.
