The Skeptics were a mid 80s band from Frederick, Maryland. “Haunted Host” is about a haunted Fredrick amusement park and comes from the 1985 album Snallygaster, named after a local legend of a bird and reptile hybrid with tentacles that would suck the blood of the victims it would carry away after swooping down from the sky. Though never successful in their day, the band has garnered renewed interest with a recent documentary called The Skeptics In A World Of Their Own.
