History

Chastain is the band of metal guitarist David Chastain who has released music non-stop under different monickers since the early '80s. David Chastain is also the proprietor of Leviathan Records. Kate French is now the wife of Larry Howe of Vicious Rumors. Chastain specializes in guitar-oriented hard and heavy metal. The discography includes albums by the band Chastain and the solo act David Chastain as eventually the two have become indistinguishable.

Shrapnel Records reissue the first two albums, namely Mystery Of Illusion and Ruler Of The Wasteland in October of 2008. One-time Chastain band-mates Leather Leone (vocals) and David T. Chastain (guitar) had been working together in 2013 on new material. The two worked together most famously in the 1980s. Drummer Stian Kristoffersen of Pagan's Mind and Firewind was part of the line-up.

Chastain, which in 2013 again featured Leather Leone on vocals, announced Surrender To No One as the title for its next album. The band was shopping its music to labels. The returning band would issue a demo called We Bleed Metal in 2015 through guitarist David Chastain’s Leviathan Records. At the same time, Darkology would issue a new demo called Fated To Burn through its imprint Prime Eon Media in June. The Dallas-based band featured former Chastain guitarist Michael Harris. Chastain released Chastainium and a new promotional video for the track We Bleed Metal in 2017. The album was a compilation of two tracks each from the band’s last eight albums. Chastain re-issued its 2015 album We Bleed Metal in 2017 keeping the original’s drums and vocals, but adding and rerecording the other instruments. With only one guitar track on the album the disc, the man opined, was as close a sound to a live performance as possible given that the band does not tour. It was out on Pure Steel Records and Leviathan Records.
