Review

This 4 track EP from the Texas based post rock band And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead is an album teaser with new tracks taken from the forthcoming 6th album "The century of self" out on Feb.17th.
After 3 albums on Interscope, the band now releases this EP and the new album independently on Richter Scale records.
I never really bothered to listen to this band in the past but might regret that now since these 4 new songs are so bloody good, the sound is huge and atmospheric and mostly remind of a mix between Smashing Pumpkins, Secret Machines and Rogue Wave.
I love the 70´s prog influences as well as a touch of more modern alternative rock, the instrumental "The betrayal of Roger Casement and the Irish brigade" is stunning.
I can´t wait to hear the next album because this is one of the best EP´s of 2008, just turn up the volume to the pompous opening track "Bells of creation" - just marvelous!
