Official Press Release for Chastain Uncut!
The original Uncut version of CHASTAIN's Surrender To No One!!
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
Guitarist David T. Chastain explains the "Uncut" version: "As a producer
and record company owner it is my job to put together a Cd with the
best chance of commercial success. However as a musician/songwriter I
want to hear the music as it was written and recorded. Therefore "Uncut"
is the original version of the Cd before the Producer (DTC) got hold of
it! Actually both versions have their good points. More guitar solos
are on this version as well as two of the songs are drastically
different. Plus I usually edit out things that 99% of the listeners
would never notice such as guitar string noise, amp hum, and other
things that drive me crazy. We will leave it to the fans to tell us
which they like best!"
The digital download version of UNCUT will be on Leviathan
Records Worldwide. Hellion Records will release UNCUT on CD format in
Europe and South America.

I first listened to Chastain in the 80s and finally had the chance to meet Chastain and Leather in 1990, although Leather was out of the music scene for nearly two decades, it is like she never left, a seething energy and force that cannot be stopped. Dio's death may have inspired her to continue, but the spirit energy was within her at all times! I was the first on Earth to review Chastain's newest release @ http://dansmoviereport.blogspot.com/2013/11/chastain-surrender-to-no-one-cd-review.html
And when Leather wanted to return to the music, I interviewed her even before she rejoined Chastain @ http://dansmusicreport.blogspot.com/2011/08/exclusive-interview-leather-leone-back.html
Needless to say, you will get all of the Leather news that is fit to print and some that is to wild to even mention haha! Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....
