There are multiple bands who go under the name 'The Scream', one is a 4 piece indie rock band of Sydney, another was a hard rock band of the 80's and early 90s.
The Scream was a scorching hard rock outfit, which came off as a cross between Aerosmith and Cinderella.
Vocalist/guitarist John Corabi had moved from Philadelphia to Los Angeles with his blues-based band Angora in search of fame and fortune. When Angora disbanded (with half the band forming Graveyard Train) Corabi hooked up with alumni Bruce Bouillet (guitar), John Alderete (bass) and Scott Travis (drums), all former members of the highly acclaimed technical metal band Racer X. Travis quickly left to join Judas Priest and one-time Shark Island drummer Walt Woodward III stepped behind the kit.
The group quickly signed to Hollywood records and released a critically acclaimed album that was produced by the legendary Eddie Kramer. Their brand of commercial hard rock was destined for success, however after touring behind the album for a year Corabi got an offer he couldn't refuse. He left The Scream to replace Vince Neil in the sleaze legends Motley Crue. The remaining members recruited vocalist Billy Fogarty and began work on the follow-up album.
Takin' It To The Next Level was recorded in 1993, but was never released due to a shuffle within the record label. The group soon broke up with everyone but Woodward forming the short lived DC-10.
