Richard Christy had this to say about performing at the festival: “I am beyond honored to be playing the Orion Music and More Fest with Charred Walls of the Damned! I’ve been a Metallica fan since the age of 12 and Lars Ulrich is a huge influence on my drumming, so to be invited by the mighty Metallica to play their festival is a dream come true to say the least. I was actually planning on attending this festival when I first heard about it and now to find out that we’re actually playing just blows my mind! We’ll see you at Orion Music and More!”
Charred Walls of the Damned’s second album, Cold Winds on Timeless Days, was released on October 11, 2011. The album, much like its self-titled predecessor, received heaps of praise from fans and press.
“unalloyed metal delivered in the long-haired, soloing, double-bassing, I-feel-like-I’m-riding-a-winged-serpent-towards-a-hemorrhaging-volcano fashion.” Decibel Magazine
“a 58-minute barrage of cutting-edge power metal abounding with tumbling polyrhythms, asymmetrical riffs, and unconventional arrangements. Though technically demanding, the songs are focused by the tuneful, vibrato-laden vocals of Tim “Ripper Owens and the crafty guitar work and stellar production of Jason Suecof.” 4/5 stars, Revolver Magazine
“Charred Walls of the Damned are a rarity in the metal world ˜ a supergroup that’s actually super…I defy you to listen to it and not raise a pair of invisible elephantiasis-afflicted nuts towards the sky. It’s impossible. It just can’t be done.”MetalSucks.net
“It’s smart, it’s melodic, and it’s sure to get the head banging. A quality slice of US metal.” Big Cheese Magazine
“complicated riffs and numerous tempo shifts… the musicianship is flawless… technical skill is top-notch” about.com
