Charred Walls of The Damned in NYC

On Thursday July 8, Charred Walls of the Damned (featuring Tim "Ripper" Owens and Richard Christy) took over The Gramercy theater in New York City. On this night, the band was joined by The Hixon, Magus Beast and comedian Don Jamieson from VH1's That Metal Show.

We arrived just in time to check out The Hixon, a band that we have been watching for a while and they are starting to get the recognition they deserve. The Hixon always puts on great performances and their music is brutally structured. Their message is very clear: they are here to spread the brutality through uncompromised and well focused music.

Following The Hixon, comedian Don Jamieson was introduced by Eddie Trunk and Jim Florentine, who are his co-hosts from VH1's That Metal Show. Don put on an excellent comedy show, something that we had never experienced at a concert and found it to be very entertaining. He talked about all things that rock: getting laid, drinking booze, smoking and rocking out at Duff's Brooklyn.

A few minutes after Don was cheered loudly off the stage, Charred Walls of The Damned took over center stage and played a rocking set. The all star band sounded loud and proud, and the New York crowd was very stoked to have Richard Christy from The Howard Stern Show and formerly from Death, Iced Earth and Control Denied, back behind the drums. Some of the highlights of their set included a cover of Iron Maiden's Number of The beast and Sepultura's Territory sang by Jose Mangin from Sirius XM Liquid Metal.

The night was a reunion of the New York Heavy Music family and it couldn't have been any better. We ran into Richard Christy at the end of the night and this is what he had to say: "I am so happy of our show tonight. New York is my home, so I wanted to make sure that everyone had a good time. I actually was nervous right before we went on, but everything was great! I want to thank all the fans for making this a memorable night!"
