Scream Taker is a 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). 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 and currently working in Last In Line alongside Dio alumni Vivian Campbell (Dio, Whitesnake, Def Leppard). ‘Kill The Beautiful’ unleashes 12 original songs including standout tracks “Stone Cold” and “Shattered Mirror”. Jim Crean gives an outstanding vocal performance only matched by Vinny Appice’s signature drumming. This is a must-have for fans of any of their previous work. Jim Crean can also be seen fronting the Appice Brothers with Vinny Appice and his legendary drumming brother Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge, Ozzy Osbourne, etc...). Scream Taker hopes to do select dates towards the end of 2022 following the release of their debut album ‘Kill The Beautiful'. The first single and video for “Stone Cold” will be available on August 26th.
