New Jersey-based progressive metal unit EAST OF THE WALL will be releasing their fourth full-length, Redaction Artifacts, on October 29th, once again through Translation Loss Records.
EAST OF THE WALL’s first record since the departure of bassist Brett Bamberger and guitarist Kevin Conway sees the band’s style expanding into a newer archetype, the sound of Redaction Artifacts surging with a more direct and driving core while the mellower and melodious atmospheres of the songwriting sound more vibrant and cohesive than ever. In Conway and Bamberger’s place, the band’s remaining members — Chris Alfano, who moved from guitar to bass, guitarist/vocalist Matt Lupo, and drummer Seth Rheam — have added Ray Suhy, a jaw-dropping guitar shredder from Portland, Maine, as well as guitarist/vocalist Greg Kuter, who adds the strongest melodic vocal presence the band has yet had.
Redaction Artifacts is the densest EAST OF THE WALL record to date, with eleven tracks of intricately conceived genre jumping metal. The album was tracked by Eric Rachel (Municipal Waste, God Forbid, Burnt By The Sun, Skid Row) at Trax East, and Todd Hutchinsen (Zud, The Baltic Sea) at Acadia Recording, and mixed by Eric Rachel at Trax East. In addition to the digital and CD versions through Translation Loss, Science Of Silence will be releasing the record on vinyl as a double LP.
Stay tuned for tunes from Redaction Artifacts and more to hit, including the band’s first official video and more. In the meantime fans can check out the cover art and a Youtube trailer for the album and more AT THIS LOCATION.

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.
If you scroll down on our myspace page you’ll find Meat Pendulum / Winter Breath and Salieri, both live at the Brighton Bar. Specifically they’re from the split EP release show, which was the first live outing for the new lineup.
