Dallas Toler-Wade, guitarist/vocalist of the death metal band Nile, has launched a new metal project called Narcotic Wasteland. Their debut album will be released in mid-January 2014 and will be available via the band's website as well as iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon. You just have to wait for the music now.

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/vocals) if he was interested, which he was. They both had played in some metal bands together in the early to mid 1990s. Edwin had later recommended Chris ("Lutachrist") Dupre for bass/vocals.



Album Cover


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."

Updates on the exact album release date, CD/merchandise, and upcoming touring information can be viewed at the band's website as well as their Facebook page.

Narcotic Wasteland is:

Dallas Toler-Wade - guitar/vocals
Edwin Rhone - guitar/vocals
Chris Dupre - bass/vocals
Erik Schultek - drums

Curious to hear this and see what style it's in. One would think death or thrash, given the band name and the aesthetic of the album cover, but you never know...

Agreed. Very curious indeed. However, the artwork has me thinking either Grind or Crossover.

@Carl Berg Same here. I was expecting a record label.
