FRANCESCO BUCCI (SCREAMACHINE): “We Are Ready To Set The Stages On Fire”


Let Them Hear You Scream

What do you get when you bring together five veteran musicians who love playing and listening to Heavy Metal? You get ScreaMachine! ScreaMachine is a collective of Italian musicians brought together by bassist and lead songwriter Franceso Bucci, to pay homage to the classic Heavy Metal music they grew up with. ScreaMachine cite among their influences as Judas Priest, Metallica, Iced Earth, Savatage, and Accept. Their debut self-titled album is set to drop on April 9, 2021. I had the chance to speak Franceso Bucci ahead of the album’s release.

Highlights Include

  • Discussion of debut album ScreaMachine
  • How veteran musicians came together for this project
  • How ScreaMachine got their special guests to contribute
  • Is ScreaMachine a studio project or are their live aspirations
  • Why the writing process has already begun for their second album
  • … and much, much more!
