Chastain has just released their new record Chastainium along with a new promotional video for the song "We Bleed Metal (V2017)." Chastain has been at it now for over 30 years and this is the first record to chronicle the history of the band. Two songs from each of the last eight records showcase Chastain's inventive and unique sound. Originally formed by David T. Chastain and Mike Varney, the band has created some iconic moments in metal music.
Comments band founder and guitarist David T. Chastain, "I thought it was time for a Chastain 101 refresher course for the fans who have been following the band for many years and also an introduction course to the newer fans who may have only became acquainted with the band in 2013 with the second coming of vocalist Leather Leone and the rebirth of Chastain."
"I went back over the last eight albums that stretched some 30 years and picked two tracks from each for what I considered the best representation of that particular album. Most all of the tracks have been premastered. Some are completely new arrangements never heard before by the fans."
David continues: "I have been blessed to have had a lot of high quality musicians and two great vocalists in the band over the years so there is lot to be proud of considering many of the albums were recorded with pretty miniscule budgets and limited studio time. Of course the bottom line for me is: 'was it an artistic success?' I think the consistency thru the years is quite apparent even with the evolution of different musicians and bands."
