Metal band Charred Walls of the Damned has released it third studio album, Creatures Watching Over the Dead, which bandleader Richard Christy (drums) composed over the past five years.
“When I write for Charred Walls I never really plan anything out. I just start playing riffs and if something sounds really cool, I’ll build a song from there. My only intent is that I want our music to be heavy, melodic, and catchy,” Christy said. “Jason [Suecof] and I then get together for pre-production. I’m an average guitar player so he takes my riffs and makes them amazing, and then we spend a lot of time re-arranging and crafting the songs to refine them and make them flow really well. Once we have the songs where we want them, we get together with [vocalist] Tim [“Ripper” Owens] and [bassist] Steve [DiGiorgio] to take them to the next level.”
Steve DiGiorgio has had an extensive metal career, and along with Charred Walls of the Damned, he’s also worked with Futures End, Sadus, Synesis Absorption, Mythodea, Anatomy of I and Testament.
Here’s the album single, “The Soulless”:
