EAST OF THE WALL To Release “Redaction Artifacts” In October

Friday, 27th September 2013

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/vocals to bass/vocals, 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 at Trax East, and Todd Hutchinsen 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.
