Screaming Dead were formed in 1980 and were a punk band with a strong interest in the dark and morbid. They described themselves as a horror punk band. Guitarplayer Tony Mc Kormak played an important role in the sound and image of the Screaming Dead.
The band released 5 records during their existence of which you'll find the 3 12"s here. The other 2 records are the 'Valley Of The Dead' 7" and the 'Paint It Black' 7" (which I don't own for the moment).
There has been a discography CD released in 1993 called 'Bring Out Yer Dead' but it is hard to find nowadays.
The band reformed in 1997 to do some reunion gigs and recorded the 'Death Rides Out' CD that contains re-recorded old songs and some new ones. The band split up again in 1999.
Tony Mc Cormak plays in pagan goth rock band Inkubus Sukkubus nowadays, that was formed after the demise of Screaming Dead in 1986.
This one goes out to Erik SN at Missionary Penetration.
