New Jersey’s “post-everything” progressive powerhouse, EAST OF THE WALL, has today released another video from their brand new fourth album, Redaction Artifacts. The song, “Obfuscator Dye,” is the third track from the band’s new opus, which has been garnering near-universal critical acclaim surrounding its release at the end of October. The simplistic but vibrant performance video for the track was filmed by Jolil Ula of Vacant Eye Photography.

Metal Injection is hosting the premiere of “Obfuscator Dye” now AT THIS LOCATION.

Redaction Artifacts can be procured through the usual online retailers such as Amazon and iTunes, and exclusive colors of the vinyl version can be found at scienceofsilence.net.

Following a round of record release shows for the new album, EAST OF THE WALL will be bringing their powerful live performance on the road to the U.S. this Spring and to Europe over the Summer, but for now those local to the band’s home state can catch them at the following shows. Additional live actions for the band will be announced in the weeks ahead.

EAST OF THE WALL Live:

11/22/2013 Court Tavern – New Brunswick, NJ w/ Black Wine, Brick Mower, Risk Relay
11/23/2013 The Saint – Asbury Park, NJ w/ Hammer Fight, Carnavarice Breath, Sydbarret, El Drugstore

“Once again, progressive rock, noise, post-punk, and sludge metal are referenced but never solely relied on in these elastic compositions, instead turning into an adventurous, cohesive whole that blends melody and atonality well, at times beautifully. Like Intronaut, this is wholly unclassifiable music, created and performed with tremendous discipline.” –Decibel

“Without hyperbole, this is the band’s greatest work and one of the finest records of the year. 9.5/10″ – Metal Injection

“Redaction Artifacts is a thoughtful, ear-candy-laced labyrinth with a lot to explore and absorb. This is dense, challenging music, and as impressive as East of the Wall’s releases have been thus far, Redaction Artifacts is certainly their finest album yet.” – No Clean Singing

“…what you would come to expect out of these New Jersey progressive masterminds. Even revamping a line up didn’t allow the music to suffer. East of the Wall have crafted yet another outstanding release that truly highlights the benefits of virtuosic musicianship and creative songwriting. To put it in simple terms, it’s just damn good. 9/10″ – American Aftermath

“East Of The Wall is the intersection of Mastodon earthiness and any-prog-band complexity. Redaction Affairs puts a tighter focus on the former, giving you those lost-in-the-wilderness feels and a sense of disconnect from melody and chord.” – MetalSucks

“…a stunner, a record that surpasses even the great strides of 2011′s The Apologist… working in elements of art rock and prog and hardcore for a final product that dazzles.” – eMusic

“There just isn’t a better example of hall-mark progressive metal for 2013. These amalgamations were superbly sculpted with in studio both recording and rehearsal. East of the Wall again triumph embodying the progressive moniker in name and due diligence. 9.4/10” – HBNBM

“Liken to a first serving of fine whiskey, it may take an open mind open to appreciate something as innovative and complex as it is, but Redaction Artifacts is just a fantastic goddamn Rock and Roll record.”  – Live High Five

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.


Listen to “The Fractal Canopy” at eMusic now AT THIS LOCATION.

New Jersey genre-jumping technicians EAST OF THE WALL have released “Arbiters Meet,” the first song from the band’s record upcoming fourth full-length album, Redaction Artifacts. The single is synced to a look into the album’s recording process, using footage that the band took throughout the tracking and mixing sessions.

“Arbiters Meet” is now a featured video at Metal Injection RIGHT HERE.

EAST OF THE WALL is also using this footage to create a series of in-studio mini-documentaries, which will be released in the coming weeks, as Redaction Artifacts nears release on October 29th. The new album was engineered 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. Featuring a revamped lineup, the nearly fifty-five minute Redaction Artifacts counters some of EOTW’s most direct and aggressive musical attacks with their most melodious vocal and guitar harmonies to date.

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.
