You heard right! There’s a new Nile side-project primed to go. Vocalist / guitarist Dallas Toler-Wade is the man behind Narcotic Wasteland. You can read the official press release down below. And of course, we couldn’t resist including some music.
Dallas Toler-Wade, guitarist/vocalist of the death metal band “Nile” is announcing the debut release of his metal band “Narcotic Wasteland.”
The album will be released mid-January 2014 and available via the band’s website (www.narcoticwasteland.com) as well as i-Tunes, Spotify, and Amazon.com.
Narcotic Wasteland started as a side project Dallas had been working the past few years when he was not touring or in the writing/studio mode with “Nile.” “The more songs I completed for “Narcotic Wasteland,” the more I wanted to put a full band lineup together,” said Dallas Toler-Wade.
Dallas asked long time friend Edwin Rhone (lead guitar/vox) if he was interested, which he was. They both had played in some metal bands together in the early to mid 1990’s. Edwin had later recommended Chris (“Lutachrist”) Dupre for bass/vox.
Dallas stated, “Chris came in and not only knew his parts, but owned them with lots of attitude. So the only thing left was finding a drummer. After trying out several drummers from all over the states over two years, my band mate in “Nile,” George Kollias, recommended Erik Schultek. Erik did not only nail the material, but fit very well to the style and sound of the music.”
