This new track, titled “The Fractal Canopy,” contrasts the previously-released singles from Redaction Artifacts by exposing more of EAST OF THE WALL’s melodic side. The eight-minute prog opus, while still retaining the soul of the group’s metallic bite, references the tonal palette of 90s left-of-center alt rock like Failure and Hum as frequently as it calls back to Opeth or Converge.

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.

Redaction Artifacts Track Listing:
1. Solving The Correspondence Problem
2. I’m Always Fighting Drago
3. Obfuscator Dye
4. The Fractal Canopy
5. Arbiters Meet
6. Third-Person Camera
7. Excessive Convulsive
8. The Methuselah Tree
9. A Negligible Senescence
10. Redaction Artifacts

February 21st, 2013

New Jersey progressive metal unit EAST OF THE WALL has posted a new digital single to benefit Translator Audio, the renowned NYC-based studio having been completely destroyed when Hurricane Sandy blasted the East Coast in October. Translator Audio was the place countless bands have recorded some of their most impressive material, including Keelhaul, Unsane, Pelican, Cave In, Made Out Of Babies, Rosetta, and more, including where EAST OF THE WALL recorded their commended 2011-released The Apologist LP.

In order to raise money for the studio’s reconstruction fund, EAST OF THE WALL is releasing a demo of a track scheduled for the group’s yet-to-be-recorded upcoming album, which will be released later this year via Translation Loss Records.

The track, titled “I’m Always Fighting Drago,” is the first to feature EAST OF THE WALL’s revamped lineup, which still includes drummer Seth Rheam, guitarist/vocalist Matt Lupo, and guitarist/vocalist Chris Alfano, yet sees new guitarist Ray Suhy and guitarist/vocalist Greg Kuter filling the holes left by departing members Brett Bamberger (bass/vocals) and Kevin Conway (guitar/vocals).

Suhy (also guitarist for The Baltic Sea) has been performing and writing with EOTW for over a year, first as a touring guitarist, and then joining as a full member when Conway left the band last April. Shortly afterwards, Bamberger left the band to join Revocation full-time. After some restructuring, Alfano moved to bass and Kuter was added, completing the lineup, and in the process adding the strongest melodic vocal element the band has ever produced.

The new demo can be streamed exclusively at MetalSucks, and those interested in helping Translator Audio can purchase the digital single in lossless audio from Bandcamp for $3 (although those wishing to donate more can do so).

Included with the single for “I’m Always Fighting Drago” is an acoustic/vocal cover of “Century Of Excellence,” a song from EAST OF THE WALL’s first album, Farmer’s Almanac, performed by Larry Chiswick (Vehicle For Blackness, ex-All Parallels)

Stream and purchase the “I’m Always Fighting Drago” single and donate to Translator Audio via MetalSucks RIGHT HERE.

EAST OF THE WALL will enter the studio in late Spring, but will be road testing the new lineup and material on a short string of tour dates to be announced shortly.

Incredible, advance media reviews of The Apologist are dubbing it as the band’s most cohesive and potent material to date. Set for release on October 25th on CD/digital via Translation Loss and 2xLP via Antithetic Records, the textured madness was recorded by Andrew Schneider at Translator Audio in Brooklyn (Cave In, Pelican, Keelhaul, Unsane, Rosetta), and surges with nearly fifty minutes of EAST OF THE WALL’s trademark challenging progressive metallic prowess.

“Imagine the metallic flourishes of the math-rock band Don Caballero lasting much longer, the bombastic gruff of Botch injected with melody, and some super-tight, jazz-inspired guitar work.” – NPR

“… the same wonky, jazzy, proggy via post-hardcore East of the Wall-isms… but done in new ways, evolved to the next level, more ambitious.” – MetalSucks

“It’s progressive metal in the truest sense of the word. This album is as raw and musically uncompromising as they come.” – Alternative Matter

“‘The Apologist has a very straight forward production that focuses the attention to the miracles that are worked in terms of melody and rhythm. It is by far the best East of the Wall have made… A new star in the post-metal sky.” – Lords of Metal

“Melodic, slick, clearly jazz-influenced and wonderfully emotion-hewn, this instrumental section clashes naturally with more technical post-metal-isms later in the same song, but East Of The Wall have the talent to pull it off, whether indulging in softness, harshness, or both together.” – Metal Reviews

Promos of The Apologist and interviews with EAST OF THE WALL are available now worldwide via Earsplit PR.
