Ex-CHASTAIN Singer LEATHER LEONE Performs IRON MAIDEN Classic With SENTINEL BEAST (Video)

Former CHASTAIN singer Leather Leone joined reactivated '80s Sacramento, California thrashers SENTINEL BEAST on stage on January 29, 2011 at the Cheyenne Saloon in Las Vegas, Nevada to perform a cover version of the IRON MAIDEN classic "Phantom Of The Opera". Video footage of her appearance can be viewed below (filmed by Wayne Marsala of Grey Haven Productions).

SLEDGE LEATHER, the new project featuring featuring Leather Leone, has been confirmed for the Keep It True XIV festival, set to take place April 29-30, 2011 at Tauberfrankenhalle in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. Leather will be joined in the new band joined by MALIBU BARBI drummer Sandy Sledge, bassist Betze Stephens and guitarist Brent Baugh on guitar. The setlist will contain a lot of CHASTAIN classics, songs from her solo album and brand new songs.

SENTINEL BEAST was formed in Sacramento in 1984 by Debbie Gunn, Mike Spencer (bass), and Scott Awes (drums). During this time, the axes were played by Greg Williams and Jerry Fraiser, later to be replaced by Barry Fischel and Mark Koyasako. Discovered by Kerry King of SLAYER, the band recorded and released the influential "Depths of Death" album, on Metal Blade Records, in 1986 and the band later went on to open shows for the likes of SLAYER, EXODUS, MEGADETH, MERCYFUL FATE, KING DIAMOND, and others. The band broke up and Debbie Gunn departed for Chicago shortly after to front ZNOWHITE, then relocated to Europe to join the all-female thrash pioneers, ICE AGE.

SENTINEL BEAST's current lineup consists of Gunn, Steve Oliver on bass, Ken Korpi and Dana Lindstrom on guitars, and Mark Varian on drums.
