February 14, 2014  Cincinnati, Ohio - The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is honored to welcome back Arizona’s female-fronted Heavy Metal act BENEDICTUM, along with their special guest, U.S. female Metal matriarch LEATHER LEONE (CHASTAIN) for her exclusive Midwest metalfest performance at the 7th annual Warriors Of Metal Festival.

Benedictum vocalist, Veronica “The V” Freeman states: “We are so damned excited to play at the Warriors Of Metal Fest VII this year. It was a blast for me to be part of the crowd and announce a few bands last year as co-host of the event and be a part of that metal community, but it will be even better to actually play. Now, top that off with the fact that we will be bringing with us the talented and crazy Leather Leone of Chastain to jam some old and new Chastain tunes! I encourage everyone to come out and support Metal and have a kick ass time with us and all the great bands performing. We love ya! The V, Benedictum”

The Metal Community Rejoice! The Return Of LEATHER LEONE And SANDY SLEDGE On “IMAGINE ME ALIVE”

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on May 7, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

In absence for more than two decades, we embrace new material from Leather Leone (Chastain, Rude Girl, Malibu Barbi) and drummer Sandy Sledge (Rude Girl, Malibu Barbi, Warbride, WeaponsVan) in their new project Sledge Leather.

The Sledge Leather debut album “Imagine Me Alive” was inspired in 2010 when Leather Leone called Sandy Sledge to collaborate on the Ronnie James Dio track “Egypt” for a demo tribute recording. Due to the overwhelming response for more material, Sledge Leather was born and were confirmed for Germany’s Keep it True Festival, April 30, 2011.

Sledge Leather entered the studio in 2011 to record their comeback album “Imagine Me Alive”, engulfing the listener in an onslaught of heavy metal with 11 cohesive tracks that resurrects a classic HEAVY metal sound with Dio’s former band members Scott Warren (keyboards), and Jimmy Bain (bass).

“Imagine Me Alive” is currently available from the band and soon through all on-line outlets.

“We wanted to finish what we started with Rude Girl in the ‘80s – straight up heavy a** metal,” Sandy Sledge explains, “This album truly shows the different ways that Leather’s voice can create music.”

Leather Leone comments: “It’s great for me to finally have a huge say in what’s written and how it’s written. With Sledge, I feel like it’s writing with a soul mate — same beliefs, same ideas — because we are writing what comes to us naturally and what comes to us naturally is HEAVY music. This is metal. It’s just ‘metal.’ Heavy, metal.”

Respected industry friends Mike Varney and Monte Connor comment on Sledge Leather:

“Sledge and Leather are the most powerful team of female rockers on the metal scene today,” says Mike Varney, founder of Shrapnel Records.

”Leather sounds as great as she ever did and kicks even more ass than she did in the ‘80s!,” says Monte Connor of Roadrunner Records.

Sledge Leather’s album line-up includes: Leather Leone (vocals), Sandy Sledge (drums), Matthias Weisheit (guitars), Scott Warren (keyboards/orchestration), and Jimmy Bain (bass).

“Imagine Me Alive” is currently available from the band and soon through all on-line outlets.
