70.000 Tons of Metal: Day 2

While most of the fans were sleeping – well let's say some of them - the "The Independence Of The Seas" metal-battleship ship had to make a 90 degrees course change, an evasive maneuver to calmer seas, in order to avoid sailing into a storm. The 37 knot (42 mph) wind also prevented the organization from erecting the decorative side-fills, left and right of the stage. Also the lighting rig was put at half mast, so that the stiff winds won't tear it down. At least the Pool stage was ready on time for Raven and all the other bands that would hit the Pool-Deck-Stage on Day 2.

To catch my favourite American thrash metal band from Newbury Park, CA Warbringer I had to get up somewhat early in the morning - meaning before 9 a.m. - to have enough time for a tasty breakfast at the Windjammers buffet. The buffet offered everything you could think of from hash-browns, scrambled/fried eggs, ham, cheese, cereals of all kinds, toast, vegetables, fruits, juice, regular coffee, decaffeinated coffee, tea etc. etc. Even soy-milk could be served for my vegan significant other.

Warbringer kick-started the day at the Royal Theater at 10:45 am:

Ex-Nile Vocalist Announces Narcotic Wasteland

Narcotice Wasteland, the now full-time project of former Nile frontman Dallas Toler-Wade, is set to release new music soon. To satisfy fans in the meantime, the band has re-issued pervious 2014 self-titled debut album, "Narcotic Wasteland," out today via Megaforce Records/MRI.

Dallas states: "I left Nile for many other reasons that will remain undisclosed, not just for the reasons they detailed in their statement, which were 'to focus on my own plans and recordings.' That quote didn't come from me.

"I was already putting a lot of my time and energy into Narcotic Wasteland when Nile was not busy writing or touring. My intention was to do shows and albums with Narcotic Wasteland on the flipside, because I like to stay busy. I will continue to write and perform music on whatever level I can for as long as I can. From now on, Narcotice Wasteland will be my main musical focus."

The band's underlying concept is reflective of its namesake and the city where Dallas, Edwin, and Chris grew up. Fayetteville, North Carolina, a military town, has a PTSD rate of up to 75% in males and is the highest rated city in the U.S. for Shaken Baby Syndrome. The availability of street drugs is astounding and the ever growing epidemic of addiction to pharmaceutical drugs is an extremely toxic and unstable environment to grow up and live in. More...
