NARCOTIC WASTELAND’s Dallas Toler-Wade Discusses Gear Used on “Delirium Tremens” in New Rigged Video!

Extreme metal four-piece NARCOTIC WASTELAND – the full-time project of formerNile frontman Dallas Toler-Wade – will release a brand new full-length album, entitled Delirium Tremens, on October 13, 2017 via Megaforce Records/MRI. The album is now available for pre-orders via Amazon, with more options coming soon.

Today, Gear Gods has the exclusive on a new “Rigged” video detailing the gear Dallas Toler-Wade used on Delirium Tremens. Take a look here: http://geargods.net/rigged/rigged-narcotic-wastelands-dallas-toler-wade/

Delirium Tremens shines a spotlight on negative human behavior, inspired by – but not entirely based on – our country’s addiction epidemic. NARCOTIC WASTELANDnamed their new album after the title track, which is about delirium tremens, the medical term for symptoms an alcoholic suffers after about three days without a drink.

Over the years, many of Toler-Wade’s friends and family have fallen into the abyss of addiction, and some have never returned. It’s a tragic byproduct of growing up in Fayetteville, North Carolina, a military town where male residents have a PTSD rate as high as 75% and there are the most reported incidents of shaken baby syndrome in the country. Lots of Fayetteville’s disenchanted population chooses to escape misery through street drugs, prescription medication and alcohol.

Instead of remaining silent about the scourge that has surrounded him, Toler-Wade addresses it throughout Delirium Tremens.  In the torrential, hyper-speed guitar-fest “Faces of Meth,” he growls about amphetamines, “slowly killing you while robbing your youth and beauty” and laments those who “never had a chance at a normal life”and are “raised from generations of total ignorance.” Listen to “Faces of Meth” below:

Delirium Tremens is a dramatic musical evolution from the band’s first release. Not only is the production better, the chemistry between Rhone and Toler-Wade is impeccable, each feeling out and feeding off of the other’s playing. And bassist Chris Dupre and drummer Phil Cancilla form a whirlwind rhythm section that’s tighter than a locked door. Coupled with trenchant grooves and impacting vocals, Delirium Tremens is more than an homage to the band’s favorite musicians, it’s a new style wrought from some of the best pages of the past.

“Maybe knowing that this was going to be my main band made me think about it a little more carefully about the songs,” Toler-Wade says. “I had a bit more direction and the stuff I was writing seemed more focused. The first record established a sound and this one definitely took it to the next level.”
