Howard TV Cameras Follow Speed Metal Drummer Richard Christy And His Crew As They Film Music Video For His Band, Charred Walls Of The Damned
Special Episode, Behind the Scenes Show: The Making of Richard Christy's Music Video Plays Exclusively on Howard TV On Demand

Howard TV takes viewers on a heavy metal adventure with the airing of a new episode of the Behind The Scenes Show: The Making of Richard Christy's Music Video. Howard Stern Show on-air personality and segment Producer Richard Christy is also a well-known heavy metal speed drummer. Christy's band, Charred Walls of the Damned, chose his new song Zerospan to be the subject of the album's signature video. Fans will get a close-up look at the concept behind the video and how it all came together in this new Howard TV On Demand show airing until August 6, 2012*.

Cameras follow Richard and his production team as they shoot in upstate New York, Brooklyn and Manhattan's Washington Heights during a whirlwind two-day shoot. The video features complex horror scenes filled with special effects that show the lead character getting transformed into a "horribly mutated creature" because of an overload of technological stimulation (the theme of Zerospan).

Weighing in with their reactions to the video from the show are Gary Dell'Abate, Robin Quivers and Howard Stern.

Richard Christy elaborates on the video's concept: "I'm so excited that fans will finally be able to see the Zerospan video after many months of hard work!" He enthusiastically continues, "For fans of horror like myself, this video is the perfect mix of technological horror and all out brutality. The Zerospan video is like a mini horror film and the story follows the lyrical subject matter perfectly and creates a haunting vision of a man absorbed by the world's ever growing technology. What it comes down to, though, is that it's pretty much just a kick ass heavy metal video! Big thanks to everyone who helped make this video awesome!"

Zerospan is from the band's latest album, Colds Winds On Timeless Days. Christy had been hinting at a new video since November 2011, when the trailer was released. The lead actor in the video is Bryan Haeffele. The Zerospan video was directed and edited by Mike Schiff (director of CWOTD's previous 'Ghost Town' video) and Sean McEwan (Albino Farm) with special effects/make up by Brian Spears and Pete Gerner from G and S Effects (Stakeland).

For the Behind The Scenes Show: The Making of Richard Christy's Video, showrunners are Lee Gerowitz and Keith Fenimore. For Howard TV On Demand, Doug Z. Goodstein is Executive Producer and Mike Gange is Supervising Producer.

CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED confirms slot on Metallica's Orion Music and More Fest!
Critically-acclaimed, Richard Christy-led metal act, Charred Walls of the Damned, has recently confirmed a slot on one of the biggest music festivals of 2012: Orion Music and More Fest. The fest, which will be held at Bader Field in Atlantic City, NJ on June 23rd and 24th, will feature dozens of bands as well as a Billabong All Out Air Assault Surfing Expedition, Custom Car + Motorcycle Show, and much more. For more information on the festival, including the full line-up and Tickets, visit http://www.orionmusicandmore.com/.

Richard Christy had this to say about performing at the festival: "I am beyond honored to be playing the Orion Music and More Fest with Charred Walls of the Damned! I've been a Metallica fan since the age of 12 and Lars Ulrich is a huge influence on my drumming, so to be invited by the mighty Metallica to play their festival is a dream come true to say the least. I was actually planning on attending this festival when I first heard about it and now to find out that we're actually playing just blows my mind! We'll see you at Orion Music and More!"

Charred Walls of the Damned's second album, Cold Winds on Timeless Days, was released on October 11, 2011. The album, much like its self-titled predecessor, received heaps of praise from fans and press.

"unalloyed metal delivered in the long-haired, soloing, double-bassing, I-feel-like-I'm-riding-a-winged-serpent-towards-a-hemorrhaging-volcano fashion." Decibel Magazine

"a 58-minute barrage of cutting-edge power metal abounding with tumbling polyrhythms, asymmetrical riffs, and unconventional arrangements. Though technically demanding, the songs are focused by the tuneful, vibrato-laden vocals of Tim "Ripper Owens and the crafty guitar work and stellar production of Jason Suecof." 4/5 stars, Revolver Magazine

"Charred Walls of the Damned are a rarity in the metal world — a supergroup that's actually super…I defy you to listen to it and not raise a pair of invisible elephantiasis-afflicted nuts towards the sky. It's impossible. It just can't be done." MetalSucks.net

"It's smart, it's melodic, and it's sure to get the head banging. A quality slice of US metal." Big Cheese Magazine

"complicated riffs and numerous tempo shifts… the musicianship is flawless… technical skill is top-notch" about.com

and more HERE.

Richard Christy talks about the concept behind the video: "What we're crafting with the "Zerospan" video is a five minute technological horror film set to blistering heavy metal! We had such an amazing filmmaking team for the "Zerospan" video. We had Directors Mike Schiff (Charred Walls 'Ghost Town' video) and Sean McEwan (Albino Farm) who are super talented and have brought some incredible ideas! We also had amazing special effects makeup by Brian Spears and Pete Gerner from G and S Effects who recently did the amazing vampire film "Stakeland"! Our lead actor Bryan Haeffele did amazing as well, and people are going to freak when they see the creature effects in this video! We're going to spend some time editing and making it perfect and we're looking to a January 2012 release date! We wanted to release this quick little teaser to give everyone a taste of the horrifying awesomeness that will be the "Zerospan" video! Trust me, it is going to be well worth the wait!"

Charred Walls of the Damned "Cold Winds On Timeless Days" Billboard Chart positions revealed
The latest album from Charred Walls of the Damned, Cold Winds On Timeless Days, has debuted on the Billboard charts! The record reached #53 on the Billboard Hard Music Charts and #14 on the Billboard New Artist (Heatseekers) Chart. On iTunes, the CD peaked at #43 on the rock charts. Additionally, the album reached #89 on the Hard Music Charts on Soundscan in Canada.

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.

Charred Walls of the Damned's sophomore album, Cold Winds On Timeless Days, was released October 11th and is available everywhere now: iTunes, Amazon.com, MetalBlade.com, Shopbenchmark.com and at your local record stores.

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.com HERE. 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.

Richard Christy "Admire the Heroes" studio drumming video debuts on ModernDrummer.com!
Charred Walls of the Damned's "Cold Winds On Timeless Days" to be released on October 11th

September 28th, 2011 - Agoura Hills, CA - 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.com HERE. 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.

Richard Christy elaborates: "The drum sound on the second Charred Walls of the Damned album 'Cold Winds On Timeless Days' turned out better than I ever could have imagined thanks to engineer Mark Lewis, the amazing drum room at Hit Factory/Criteria in Miami, and all of the great equipment that I endorse like Ddrum, Sabian, Vater, Axis and Aquarian! Rehearsing the full album every day for two months straight definitely helped too. Fortunately I set up a couple of video cameras at the studio and filmed a lot of my drum tracking for our second album. We did three or four takes straight through on the drums for each song so what you'll see on these videos isn't necessarily what we used on the album (some of the drum fills don't match up exactly) but they'll give you a great idea of how amazing the drum room at Hit Factory is and how we were able to get a very natural drum sound on the new Charred Walls of the Damned album!"

Charred Walls Of The Damned's cover of Powermad's "Nice Dreams" now on iTunes!
Charred Walls Of The Damned has released their cover of Powermad's Nice Dreams on iTunes. The track is available now for $.99 HERE. Previously, the song was not available in North America.

Charred Walls Of The Damned's Richard Christy is a huge Powermad fan and adds, "I've been a huge Powermad fan since I first heard the classic album Absolute Power back in 1989. The song "Nice Dreams" has always been one of my favorite metal songs and I thought it was the perfect cover song for this band, a great way to showcase what an amazing lead guitar player Jason Suecof is, and a great way to pay tribute to one of my favorite underground metal bands. Hopefully some fans who aren't familiar with Powermad will hear this song and discover this great thrash metal band, and hopefully Powermad fans will enjoy hearing our take on the classic song "Nice Dreams"."
