EAST OF THE WALL
THE APOLOGIST
TRANSLATION LOSS

Prepare for a deluge of musical excess courtesy of New Jersey based quintet East of the Wall and their latest 12-track album THE APOLOGIST. This unitís advanced take on the progressive metal mindset is not suitable for the novice, as the dizzying signature changes, glorious floating melodies, and massive instrumental interludes employed on these tracks consistently pull inspiration from avant-garde metalís upper echelon acts while the band throws in their own set of musical curveballs and cliffhangers to create an amalgamated salvo of stellar musicianship. Armed with equal parts The Mars Volta and The Dillinger Escape Plan with a smorgasbord of post-metal, jazz fusion, and badass shredding making an impression, despite cleverly creative juices undeniably pumping throughout, a shot of self-editing would assuredly smooth the multitude of meandering moments over as well as round out the overall presentation to assist East of the Wall to stand strong alongside their peers.
