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
