In 2018 Pure Steel Records issued a new version of the 1988 album The Voice of the Cult by traditional heavy metal underground band Chastain. This gem features the shredding talents of the wizard David T. Chastain, the iron lungs of Leather Leone, with the hard-hitting drumming of the talented Ken Mary, and on bass Mr. Chastain’s reliable partner in crime throughout the 1980s Mike Skimmerhorn.
One of the running themes in the music of David T. Chastain is that he plays for only fans of serious guitar. Mr. Chastain has dedicated his life to the guitar. When he joined with the singer Leather Leone the magic began. Leather has a voice that sounds like only Leather can. Strong and powerful, muscular and gritty, the singing is done with horsepower and if you want to sing along, you most definitely are welcome to do it.
Anyway, the album is considered a cult favorite for fans of U.S. metal and it is because it has stood the test of time well. If you have never heard Chastain, this album is a great place to start.
