Transitional Scream is a Metal/Alternative Power-Trio based out of Long Island, NY. Founding member, Rich Kasten is the Singer/Songwriter/Guitar Player for "TS". After linking up with a local Producer/Drummer, Rich put together a collection of songs he had written up until that point that he felt were not of the sound of the bands he had worked with up until that point. Those songs turned into what would be Transitional Scream's debut release, Transitional Scream - EP (2008). Transitional Scream -EP is available for purchase on iTunes, Rhapsody, and CDBaby.
Rich's main objective with his music is to make clear of his cherished influences while maintaining originality. Such influences consist of Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Black Label Society, Rob Zombie, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Pantera, and more. With this wide range of influences, TS has been known to come to the liking of a broad audience.
Transitional Scream has been quoted as "Having the angst driven vocals in the likes of Kurt Cobain, with the ferocious leads of Zakk Wylde."
After a three-year hiatus, Rich has reformed Transitional Scream with members Frank Perry (Drums) and Michael Vitale (bass). With over 60 years of combined experience, you can be sure TS will be bringing back the "Scream" more than ever all throughout the Tri-State area.
