There's always bands that everyone knows, and then there are bands and musicians that made an impact on you that weren't what any would call commercially gigantic. For me, vocalist Leather Leone has long been one of those musicians. While she never broke through like a contemporary like Doro Pesch did, her work was always as good (maybe better, to be honest) than the reigning queen of Metal's output was. Be it the work she did with Rude Girl, the critically acclaimed recordings as the frontwoman of Chastain, or even solo, Leather Leone was almost never considered as a "female metal singer". Instead, her grit and integrity always left her known as simply a "metal singer".
