Guitar Playthrough Clip For "Faces Of Meth" Issued By Narcotic Wasteland

Extreme metal four-piece Narcotic Wasteland - the full-time project of former Nile 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.

A few weeks ago, Narcotic Wasteland surprised fans with a brand new track, "Faces of Meth," to great acclaim. Today, you can watch a guitar playthrough of the track, courtesy of Dallas Toler-Wade, via Guitar World at this location, or simply clicking in the player at the bottom.

Dallas says, "When writing this song, I was tapping into some of the musical ideas I had in the early 90s. I have always loved the toxic tri-tone sound. So, years ago I figured out a way to play them using my index and middle, then kind of hammering on the next strings over with my middle and pinky. This is all over the two albums in one form or another, and it is something I have quite enjoyed experimenting with over the years."

"Delirium Tremens" shines a spotlight on negative human behavior, inspired by - but not entirely based on - our country's addiction epidemic. Narcotic Wasteland named the 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. of remaining silent about the scourge that has surrounded him, the band addresses it throughout "Delirium Tremens."

"Delirium Tremens" is a dramatic musical evolution from the band's first release. Not only is the production better, the chemistry between Ed 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.

The track listing is as follows:

1. Introspective Nightmares
2. Faces of Meth
3. Return to the Underground
4. We Agnostics
5. In Memoriam (intro)
6. Bleed and Swell
