Scream Taker is the brand-new outfit fronted by Buffalo Music Hall of Fame vocalist Jim Crean (Appice Brothers), alongside French guitarist Steph Honde (Paul Di’Anno, Hollywood Monster), and legendary drummer Vinny Appice (Dio, Black Sabbath, Appice Brothers). The three musicians have created a classic hard rock album in the vein of Dio, which is no surprise as Vinny Appice is one of the founding members of the original Dio band.
Scream Taker recorded the album during the pandemic and post Jim Crean’s short lived tenure with former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent. Crean was to perform with Vincent in his comeback performance alongside Carmine Appice (Ozzy Osbourne, Vanilla Fudge, Appice Brothers) and Tony Franklin (the Firm, Blue Murder), which unfortunately never materialized. Scream Taker is quickly getting noticed for its powerful combination of heavy riffs and soaring melodies, with offers already coming in for the band to take the show on the road in 2024.
