Leviathan Records Worldwide has just released the first official video off the CHASTAIN Cd “Surrender To No One.” Guitarist David T. Chastain states, “We wanted to get something official up there as soon as possible so we arranged for a lyric video of ‘Rise Up.’ I think it turned out pretty damn good all things considered. There are already quite a few fan videos out there for the new Cd. Some more elaborate than others. We hope to have performance videos for a few of the tracks in the not too distant future. However with members living all over the world it is going to take some ‘studio trickery’ to pull it off. However we have done something similar in the past so it is just a matter of time.”
CHASTAIN’s “Surrender To No One” marks the return of original vocalist Leather Leone. Long considered one of the originators of the female power metal vocal style, Leather proves on the new CD she hasn’t lost anything from her glory days. Leather was the vocalist on the classic CHASTAIN albums:
Mystery of Illusion
Ruler of the Wasteland
The 7th of Never
The Voice of the Cult
For Those Who Dare
Also returning to the band is original bassist Mike Skimmerhorn. The drums are now being handled by Stian Kristoffersen (Pagan’s Mind, Firewind).
David T. Chastain is one of the preeminent guitarists in the world today. On the metal scene since the early 80s David has released Cds with CJSS, Chastain, Chastain/Harris, Zanister and solo. I recently got the opportunity to interview David about what is going on with him including the release of a brand new CJSS CD entitled “Kings of the World.”
Chastain are back with a Vengeance! IN AN OUTRAGE is the first release for the band in 7 years and marks a return to the classic form that many fans have been waiting for. I recently had the opportunity to pose these questions to the beautiful leather lunged vocalist for Chastain, Kate French.
