Howard TV Airs Speed Metal Drummer Richard Christy Music Video For Charred Walls Of The Damned
Howard TV takes viewers on a heavy metal adventure with the airing of a new episode of the Behind The Scenes Show: The Making of Richard Christy’s Music Video. Howard Stern Show on-air personality and segment Producer Richard Christy is also a well-known heavy metal speed drummer. Christy’s band, Charred Walls of the Damned, chose his new song Zerospan to be the subject of the album’s signature video. Fans will get a close-up look at the concept behind the video and how it all came together in this new Howard TV On Demand show airing until August 6, 2012*.
Cameras follow Richard and his production team as they shoot in upstate New York, Brooklyn and Manhattan’s Washington Heights during a whirlwind two-day shoot. The video features complex horror scenes filled with special effects that show the lead character getting transformed into a “horribly mutated creature” because of an overload of technological stimulation (the theme of Zerospan).
Weighing in with their reactions to the video from the show are Gary Dell’Abate, Robin Quivers and Howard Stern.
Richard Christy elaborates on the video’s concept: “I’m so excited that fans will finally be able to see the Zerospan video after many months of hard work!” He enthusiastically continues, “For fans of horror like myself, this video is the perfect mix of technological horror and all out brutality. The Zerospan video is like a mini horror film and the story follows the lyrical subject matter perfectly and creates a haunting vision of a man absorbed by the world’s ever growing technology. What it comes down to, though, is that it’s pretty much just a kick ass heavy metal video! Big thanks to everyone who helped make this video awesome!”
Zerospan is from the band’s latest album, Colds Winds On Timeless Days. Christy had been hinting at a new video since November 2011, when the trailer was released. The lead actor in the video is Bryan Haeffele. The Zerospan video was directed and edited by Mike Schiff (director of CWOTD’s previous ‘Ghost Town’ video) and Sean McEwan (Albino Farm) with special effects/make up by Brian Spears and Pete Gerner from G and S Effects (Stakeland).
For the Behind The Scenes Show: The Making of Richard Christy’s Video, showrunners are Lee Gerowitz and Keith Fenimore. For Howard TV On Demand, Doug Z. Goodstein is Executive Producer and Mike Gange is Supervising Producer.
