Howard TV To Air Video On Richard Christy

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 drummer. Christy's band, Charred Walls of the Damned, chose the 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!" More...

Charred Walls Of The Damned Album Hits Charts

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 more music this time around. 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.

"Cold Winds On Timeless Days" was released October 11th. You can find Metalunderground.com's interview with Richard Christy about the album by heading over here.
