Leather Leone / Malibu Barbi / Sledge Leather (US)
#1
Malibu Barbi was an American power metal band that was born of the ashes of Rude Girl. The most notable member of both bands is, of course, Leather Leone, who only sang on the Rude Girls EP. There have also been a demo and another EP listed as releases, but I'd start with the aforementioned release.

For fans of Chastain, CJSS, Liege Lord, Jaded Lady, Girlschool, Hellion, and Détente.

If you've read my interview with Leather Leone, then you'd already have known about it by then. Either way, it looks like she's forming her own solo band to make up for David T. Chastain unwilling to commit to tours. Totally understandable situation, and I hope that they get more shows around the country. Few metal vocalists out there are on her level of talent.
Quote:Leather Leone, mostly known for her work with David T Chastain, has got a band together to start exploring the Metal scene on her own. Riding the wave of the latest Chastain release “We bleed metal” she has contacted some friends for the journey. The band will consist of David Harbour, (Chastain, King Diamond), Jim Dofka , (Dofka) and Brian Harris, (Darkology).
At this time the set will include material from her 7 records with Chastain, and also from her solo effort “Shockwaves”. Leather has stated, “we are starting out slow to find our groove and hopefully begin a new project together and write some interesting Metal!!!! I look forward to running into all my die hard Metal friends “. And of course, playing with these incredibly talented musicians.”

I think the same, since she's back it doesn't matter with band would be.

Amazing backing band!

Dofka is a phenomenal underrated guitarist. That Psycho Scream demo he did was amazing and caught the attention of Chuck Shuldiner ... which landed Tim Aymar the Control Denied gig.

Her backing band, IMO, nailed all the old Chastain tunes perfectly at Ragnarokkr. Even though it wasn't Chastain, it sure felt like it. And Leather still has it for sure!
