WYKKED WYTCH vocalist Ipek conducted an interview with Richard Christy (CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED, ICED EARTH, DEATH, LEASH LAW, CONTROL DENIED, BURNING INSIDE) on the October 13, 2011 edition of “Wytching Hour” show on Metal Messiah Radio. You can now listen to the chat below.
“Cold Winds On Timeless Days”, the sophomore album from CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED, was released on October 11 via Metal Blade Records. Audiohammer‘s Jason Suecof produced and Mark Lewis mixed, while mastering was handled by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (SEPULTURA, SUFFOCATION, UNEARTH) in New Windsor, New York.
The writing process for “Cold Winds On Timeless Days” actually began while the band was mixing its 2010 debut. 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.” Christy describes “Cold Winds on Timeless Days” as a “perfect storm of producing.”
