The Screamagers

The Screamagers have created a monster that refuses to die. Fusing '50s and '60s pop sensibilities with crooning vocals and a touch of Ramones and Misfits-inspired punk, the Screamagers concocted a new musical genre: Ghoul Rock!

Biography



Hey Daddio!

Greg Shadowcaster is a Monster movie fan who rocks a 50's music sensibility with that spooky groovy feel that all the cats dig!

Zombie Steve hits the bass and yowls the howls.

Scary Chris smashes the skins and sings along.

Together they are the Screamagers!

A new band that came out of a benefit concert in late 2007. After a successful performance and with a mutual admiration of B movies and cheesy fun The Screamagers were born.

Their second practise gives us the 8 tracks on this site. Recorded in 2.5 hours complete with backing vocal tracks The Screamagers blast off with all the innocence of a different era with the passion of the modern age.

The members of the Screamagers have decades of ghastly rot 'n' roll experience under their belts.

Lead singer/guitarist Greg Shadowcaster fronted the '50s cover band the Shadowcasters.

Zombie Steve has played previously as front man/guitarist for Shake Appeal as well as many other projects in the Toronto punk rock scene.

Scary Chris has a long and varied past in the Toronto new wave/punk/country scenes. He has played with bands such as The Cads and Oh Those Pants. He also plays with new wave/country band The Lost Anglers.

The Screamagers leave no genre staple untouched: zombies, vampires, mummies, werewolves and giant insects are all paid tribute in their songs. Their fiendtastic and spooktacular tunes are best described as spoovy - a combination of spooky and groovy!

Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-ha!

Lyrics

Abducted By Aliens

Written By: Greg Dalgetty

In the middle of the night
Everything is not all right
I’m abducted by aliens
They say they want to take me home
I tell them to leave me alone
I’m abducted by aliens

Abducted by aliens
It’s a drag
Take me back, take me back

In the middle of the night
Everything is not all right
I’m abducted by aliens
They say they want to take me home
I tell them to leave me alone
I’m abducted by aliens

Abducted by aliens
It’s a drag
Take me back, take me back
Abducted by aliens
It’s a drag
Take me back, take me back

Back From The Grave

Written By: Greg Dalgetty

We met and fell in love and shortly after wed
And not long after that, I found my wife dead, so I
Dug up her bones, harvested her guts, yes I
Dug up her bones and then I
Took her to my laboratory, way up on a hill
Strapped her to my table and waited there until the lightning
Struck her corpse, set her eyes ablaze, the lightning
Struck her corpse and now,
Now my wife is back from the grave
The lightning
Struck her corpse, set her eyes ablaze, the lightning
Struck her corpse and now,
Now my wife is back from the grave

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Day Of The Centipedes

Written By: Greg Dalgetty

Day of the centipedes
Centipedes conquering the earth – oh no!
Day of the centipedes
They’ll take over the universe – oh!
And though we’ll try to fight them, we will never win
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Oh yeah!
We’ll die in glorious battle, defending the Earth
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Day of the centipedes
Day of the centipedes – oh no!
Day of the centipedes
Day of the centipedes – we’re gonna die!
Day of the centipedes
Day of the centipedes – we’re gonna die!
Day of the centipedes
Day of the centipedes – oh yeah!

Zombies

Written By: Greg Dalgetty

Zombies walking in the night
Zombies filling me with fright
Zombies walking everywhere
Scary spirits in the air
And I can’t take it anymore
Don’t know what I’m running for
Zombies, baby
And I have got to get away
I do not wanna stay
I am going to leave now
Zombies, zombies, holy cow!
Zombies walking in the night
Zombies filling me with fright
Zombies walking everywhere
Scary spirits in the air
And I can’t take it anymore
Don’t know what I’m running for
Zombies, baby x4
Whoa-whoa-whoa!

She Turned Into A Werewolf

Written By: Greg Dalgetty

SHE TURNED INTO A WEREWOLF

We went out one night, then she came to my place
And then before my eyes, hair grew on her face

Whoa - to my surprise, before my eyes
She turned into a werewolf!
To my surprise, before my eyes
Oh no!

Then we made werewolf love until the break of dawn
The neighbours wondered what was going on

Whoa - to my surprise, before my eyes
She turned into a werewolf!
To my surprise, before my eyes
Oh no!

Whoa - to my surprise, before my eyes
She turned into a werewolf!
To my surprise, before my eyes
Oh no!
