Richard Christy of Charred Walls of the Damned has been hinting at a new video since November 2011, when the trailer was released. Zerospan was directed and edited by Mike Schiff (Charred Wall's previous 'Ghost Town' video) and Sean McEwen (Albino Farm) with special effects/make up by Brian Spears and Pete Gerner from G and S Effects (Stakeland). The lead actor in the video is Bryan Haeffele.
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! 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 Mike, Sean, Brian, Pete, Bryan, Metal Blade, and everyone who helped make this video awesome!
Zerospan can be seen now at BloodyDisgusting.com HERE.

"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
