Charred Walls of the Damned Preview Horror Video

Charred Walls of the Damned, the thrash metal supergroup founded by drummer Richard Christy (Iced Earth), has wrapped production on a new video for the single "Zerospan" from their recent full-length album release Cold Winds On Timeless Days. Christy describes the clip as "a five-minute technological horror film set to blistering heavy metal," and after seeing the teaser they've recently unveiled, you'll probably be inclined to agree. We've posted it on the flipside, so check it out...

The "Zerospan" video was shot back in September under the direction of Mike Schiff (who shot the band's previous video "Ghost Town") and Sean McEwan, and features makeup and creature work by G&S Effects (Brian Spears and Pete Gerner), whose recent horror credits include Jim Mickle's post-apocalypse vampire flick Stake Land.

"People are going to freak when they see the creature effects in this video," Christy declared. "We're going to spend some time editing and making it perfect and we're looking to a January 2012 release date... Trust me, it is going to be well worth the wait!"

We'll be on the lookout for the complete clip... but for now, dig some brutal techno-splatter in this teaser:
