Charred Walls Of The Damned – “Cold Winds On Timeless Days”

Charred Walls Of The Damned
“Cold Winds On Timeless Days”
(Metal Blade Records)

These guys are probably my fave band (or mebbe I should say supergroup) right now! From the affable, multi talented Richard Christy to legendary Steve DiGiorgio and famous Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, this melting pot of talent have it all – incredible melodies, brutal riffola, double bass drumming par excellence and epic vocals conspire to carry on in fine style the standard set by their amazing self titled debut! Less well known is Jason Suecof, who plays guitar, produced and even wrote additional music on this second album, but he truly is a dark horse, superbly interpreting the styles of his more prominent peers and giving life to songs like ‘The Beast Outside My Window’ or ‘Admire The Heroes’. What makes CWOTD special is that all its members gel perfectly in style as well as to the material and production – that’s damn near the perfect combo! Add in the conviction and enthusiasm so that when they’re playing ‘Forever Marching On’, it’s clear everyone in this band truly believes in it – what more can you ask for….?
