Jersey prog-destroyers EAST OF THE WALL will unleash their next massive full-length Ressentiment via Translation Loss Records on July 20th. Today, MetalSucks has hosted the an exclusive premiere of the album’s opening track, “The Ladder”, streaming now at this location: http://www.metalsucks.net/2010/07/01/climb-up-the-ladder-with-east-of-the-wall/.

Meanwhile, the band have also posted another new track from the record, ”Wisp Of Tow”, on their official website, Facebook and Myspace pages.

EAST OF THE WALL’s Ressentiment is a concept record in which the band focus on a more aggressive tone, an increased emphasis on sonic dissonance, and also integrating the use of vocals for the first time on an EOTW album. Engineered and co-produced by Will Putney at The Machine Shop (King Crimson, Clutch, Lamb Of God), the album closes out over 62 minutes in length, seamlessly meshing mind boggling tech-metal with serene melodiousness for the entire ride. Preorders for the record are being taken this week: http://translationloss.com/store/.
