“ASHES FALL UPON” CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED, EPIC METAL FALLS UPON ME
When writing up new Charred Walls of the Damned jam “Zerospan” last month my pal Axl summed up his past and present feelings towards the band thusly:
Charred Walls of the Damned are a rarity in the metal world — a supergroup that’s actually super. And because I’m a big dumb idiot, I didn’t really get that into their eponymous debut last year; but now that I’ve heard their sophomore effort, Cold Winds on Timeless Days, I know I’m a big dumb idiot, and I can now remedy my previous blunder.
I’m with ya, Axl; for whatever reason I never paid last year’s debut much attention, but I’ve loved every bit I’ve heard of their new album Cold Winds on Timeless Days. It is simply not possible to listen to CWOTD’s new song “Ashes Falling Upon Us” without feeling like your invisible chalice full of your slain enemy’s blood absolutely must be raised to the sky. Something about Ripper’s voice just gets me, and the music perfectly fits the part.
Cold Winds on Timeless Days comes out on October 11th via Metal Blade; pre-order it here.
