Richard Christy previously stated: "It’s 12 songs of crushing heavy metal and I CAN’T WAIT for everyone to hear it. I’m VERY proud of this album, everyone worked so hard on it and when you listen to it, it definitely shows."
Charred Walls Of The Damned returns with the follow up to their self-titled debut. Richard Christy, Tim "Ripper" Owns, Jason Suecof and Steve DiGiorgio once again join forces to bring to life Christy's latest body of work, Cold Winds On Timeless Days. The writing process for the new album actually began while the band was mixing their 2010 debut. Richard Christy used his experience on the first album to write songs that catered not only to each member's playing style, but to Jason Suecof's production style. The result: demos that turned out nearly identical to what ended up on the album.
With 12 songs clocking in at 58 minutes, fans are getting a lot more music this time around. Recording twelve songs in a short amount of time is no easy feat, but one that was accomplished because of the stellar talents in the band.
Christy elaborates further; "I wanted to get a natural sound out of this album, I wanted everyone to be well rehearsed, not that I wanted the album to be rushed, but I wanted the spontaneous live feel and not over think anything too much."
Richard Christy describes Cold Winds On Timeless Days as a "perfect storm of producing" – Audiohammer's Jason Suecof produced and Mark Lewis mixed, while mastering was handled by Alan Douches at West Westside.
Fans can hear the first single, 'Zerospan', as well as place pre-orders now at this location (track also streaming below). The album can also be pre-ordered on iTunes.
