Leviathan Records Worldwide has just released the new CHASTAIN video “Evil Awaits Us” from the band’s new CD “Surrender To No One.” This marks the first music video from CHASTAIN with Leather Leone on vocals since the classic “For Those Who Dare” video from 1990!
The video was filmed on 3 different continents. David T. Chastain explains, “With the band scattered around the world it took us a little more time than we would have liked but in the end it does justice to the story.” Joining David and Leather on the video are original bassist Mike Skimmerhorn and new drummer Stian Kristoffersen. There is also a special appearance by Metal internet sensation Ladyevil. David states “Ladyevil brings her beauty to go with the beast of CHASTAIN. Her transformation from innocence to evil as she moves through the supposedly haunted mansion is exactly what the lyrics foretell. I was told the ghosts were out and about during her video shoot in Brazil!”
Leather adds the final words, “I am so excited to be back out doing the things I love. Seeing myself in another CHASTAIN video was something I thought would never happen again! Thanks to all the fans who have helped make ‘Surrender To No One’ such a success and make me feel wanted again in the world of Metal.”
Leather Leone is back in the saddle again! She is one of the fewest female metal voices that wrote a chapter in metal history. Now, she has stepped up from the vocalist spot and the band releases another Chastain diamond with the original voice. Metal-Rules got in touch with David T. Chastain to talk about the new album, Leviathan label, downloading issues, Gus G. any many more…
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.”
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.”
