CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED: Eight Songs Written For Next Album – Apr. 1, 2013

CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED — the project led by acclaimed metal drummer Richard Christy (ICED EARTH, DEATH, LEASH LAW, CONTROL DENIED, BURNING INSIDE) — will enter the studio before the end of the year to begin recording its third full-length CD for an early 2014 release. Speaking to AOL‘s Noisecreep, Christy said: “I have eight new songs written for the next CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED album and it is sounding so crushing! I’m hoping that we’ll get into the studio later this year, probably in the winter because I love going to Audiohammer Studios in Florida when the weather is cold and miserable up north here. I recorded the drums for [CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED‘s second album], ‘Cold Winds On Timeless Days’, in Miami, Florida in December 2010 during a massive blizzard in New York City and it felt so good to not only be playing metal but also to get the hell away from the cold!” Continue reading CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED: Eight Songs Written For Next Album – Apr. 1, 2013

METAL CHURCH – Work On New Album Underway

METAL CHURCH singer Ronny Munroe has checked in with the following update:

“Working with Kurdt on vocal melodies for the new MC record. It’s gonna be great! Cheers…”

As previously reported, Metal Church had formally announced in 2009 that they were calling it quits but reunited last fall for the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise.

“We’ve got plans,” Munroe reveals. “We’re going to start working on a new record and maybe do some festivals this summer. We’ll keep everyone posted as soon as we make up our minds on that. We wanted to see how this went, and it went very very well. Kurdt (Vanderhoof) has sent me a couple of things here and there, but it’s nothing really that has stuck yet. We pretty much stopped doing that to focus on (70000 Tons Of Metal). So when he gets back he’s got a few things to do, and then he’s going to bury his head in writing some new stuff. It’ll be phenomenal. He’s a great writer. I’m really looking forward to it.”

“Well time will tell,” Ronny replies when asked if this is a permanent reunion, “We’ll do a record, and we’re just not going to do things the way that we did before. We’re not 25 anymore, not saying that we’re old, but we need to do things the right way.”

“Everybody understands that this is a complicated business,” drummer Jeff Plate adds. “A lot of things had to fall into place. We gotta get a good record put together and done first, to be honest that’s the first thing. There’s a distance between some of the band members, but that’s really not so much of an issue. It’s really getting the music to the ears of the fans, in their hands and then getting with someone who can put us in the right environment, at the right show, working with the right band.”
