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.
