Without the shadow of a doubt Leather Leone is one of the most legendary female heavy metal vocalists of all time. She began her singing career by joining up with guitar wunderkind David T. Chastain. CHASTAIN‘s 1985 album “Mystery Of Illusion” is an all-time metal classic. Not least thanks to Leather’s outstanding vocal performance on the record.

In 1989, Leather released her first solo effort called “Shock Waves” through David Chastain’s own  Leviathan Records label. 29 years later she is now presenting her follow up album simply enough called “Leather II”.

I would put it simple. Leone still rocks. Not only she still carries that gorgeous magnificent voice, she is still able to handle it perfectly, delivering some massive songs.

The album consists mostly of classic Heavy Metal stuff. There are also  many Power Metal elements here and  there. Do you want to listen some killer lead parts as well? They are here. Do you want the outstanding sound of a rhythm section that drives the massive riffing found on all of the songs? It is here. Yes there is some really inspired music included in this album and yes everything is blessed by this Leone touch that we simply loved. Just listen her singing the chorus of “Hidden In The Dark” and you would understand my point.

I love those type of comebacks. Straight, passionate, driven by the power of music and the need of expression. Leather Leone is definitely under this background. And you know? Her new album is worth checking.

I breathe for music. And I am more than sure that my mission in this universe is to make everybody agree that "Awaken The Guardian" by FATES WARNING is the best album ever released, yes in all musical genres. My next mission is to feed homeless cats and when I am not busy with all this stuff I listen to US Prog / Power and Epic Doom Metal. And I cast spells in rituals in order to awake the old ones. After my subscription to the "Happy Otters" team on Facebook.

Interview with HORIZON’S END

Speaking with HORIZON'S END mastermind - Sakis Bandis (keyboards) is a beautiful adventure, like each and every listen to each and every of their songs. There were really a lot of things to be discussed, as this is the very first interview that took place after the band's reunion. There is new music, there is this sudden (or not so sudden?) comeback, there is an album that was recorded but never released and a whole band that was put on ice many moons ago. Sakis spread some light to all those topics that waited for years to be clarified and to many new ones, as a new journey to the end of an infinite horizon has already started!
