I’ve noticed that we’ve been neglecting our website a bit in favor of our Facebook page. Sorry about that. It’s just easier to post there from our phones and such, so you should befriend us at www.facebook.com/eastofthewall or at least bookmark us, since we tend to do smaller quick posts there.

Regardless, we’ll make more of a point of posting all the important things here, like for example footage from our recent European tour with Radare. Those guys did what don’t tend to do anymore: pull out the video camera. Also the picture quality of their camera makes ours look like a toy.

These are the first two parts of a four-part series. They plan to post these weekly, or close to, so part three should be coming any day now. I’ve embedded them below, but I really recommend clicking the hd link to go to the vimeo site and watch it there. The hd version looks great blown up fullscreen.

This massive European tour will be just part of EAST OF THE WALL’s full year of touring in support of their recently released Ressentiment LP, which was unleashed by Translation Loss in July. The album continues to gain momentum, raking in amazing responses, both from those who have followed the band since their work with The Postman Syndrome, Biclops, Day Without Dawn and more over the past decade or more, as well as brand new fans of the technical, nearly unclassifiable act.   Promos of Ressentiment, interviews with the band and live/tour coverage are all available now via Earsplit. Please get in touch with all press inquiries.

“Put simply, East of the Wall have written a minor prog-metal masterpiece without being assholes about it. 9/10″ – Decibel Magazine

…East of the Wall are that rare band that appeal to artsy indie types and metal nerds in equal measures; their dazzling blend of technical post-hardcore aggression, melody and indie sensibility is really one of a kind.” – Metalsucks

“…a somewhat impenetrable proposition of oddball melodies, mind-bending musicianship and new age-y/fusion/jazz of contempo-prog-metal…” – Rock Sound Magazine

“East of the Wall have done everything different and nothing wrong. This is likely to be the single most eclectic album of 2010. I’m tempted to say that Ressentiment is a masterpiece. 10/10″ – Gravedigger Magazine

“…one of the more unique records released this year…a head trip of immense proportions, and well worth your time.” - Popdose

“It’s rare to hear such divergent styles executed at the high level that East of the Wall have managed to reach with this album. 4/5″ – Decoy Music

So to make up for our show cancellation on Tuesday (sorry all, I had me some kidney stones), we’re playing this Saturday at The Updog in Pennington. It’s A Fucking Elephant’s record release show, plus the rest of the bands are great: Xevious (members of Dysrhythmia), So Is The Tongue, and Dead Planet.  2399 Pennington Rd, Pennington, NJ 08534.  Hopefully we’ll see some folks there.

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/.


Ressentiment
Track Listing:
01 “The Ladder”
02 “Salieri”
03 “Fool’s Errand”
