CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED is teaming up with Rock Hard Germany for the streaming of the entire new album Cold Winds on Timeless Days! Please surf over to Rock Hard magazine at THIS location to listen to the album! The album stream is live from October 3rd to October 10th!
Richard Christy, Tim “Ripper” Owens, Jason Suecof and Steve DiGiorgio once again joined 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 second single, Ashes Falling Upon Us, as well as place pre-orders now onmetalblade.com/cwotd.

In other news Richard Christy has partnered up with Modern Drummer Magazine to premiere his studio performance video for the song Admire The Heroes. Richard filmed his drum takes while recording Cold Winds On Timeless Days at the Hit Factory Criteria in Miami, FL earlier this year. Those takes from two different cameras were edited into the video you can see on ModernDrummer.comHERE. Christy’s approach to this record was that he wanted a more organic and spontaneous sounding album. Amazingly, drums were recorded in a mere two days and the video is evidence to his ability to record the songs in an entire, contiguous take.
