Cheltenham’s Horror Punk/Death Rockers “The Screaming Dead”, whose name is drawn from the English title of the 1972 horror film “Dracula contra Frankenstein”, have had a chequered history, splitting up in 1985, reforming again in 1997; then disbanded again in 1999 and finally reforming in 2014 but the consistency across all of this period has always been the quality of their music and live performances which has not waned over the years, if anything they’ve gotten better.
Screaming Dead are one of the original gothic punk/horror punk/deathrock bands. Like The Damned, the band’s oeuvre includes purist three chord punk alongside more nuanced gothic rock pieces.
And similar to kindred souls in bands like The Dark and Siekiera, Screaming Dead’s early aggressive approach gave way, later in their career, to a more measured and atmospheric gothic sound. In newer dark punk groups like Lost Tribe and Deathcharge the influence of Screaming Dead is palpable.
