One of the very first bands that got me into metal was Chastain.

This week on Third Eye Cinema: one of the greatest of all female metal singers, legendary powerhouse Leather Leone!
As frontwoman for Chastain on no less than five records between 1985 and 1991, her dramatic, Dio inspired pipes both complemented and drew some much deserved attention to David T. Chastain’s darkly melodic neoclassical guitar work, resulting in what many insiders agree may be 5 of the greatest metal records ever recorded!
After a staggering two decade absence from music (!) and in honor of her late mentor, Leather has returned to the fray, sounding just as powerful as the day she left!
