Reviewer: Greg Watson
Featuring former Nile member, Dallas Toler Wade, Narcotic Wasteland is not your typical death metal band. Sure, there is some seriously heavy stuff on the album but the subliminal melody and some really cool lyrical content pushes this one a little past the typical death metal realm. Wade's vocals are full of bark and fit the music perfectly. From start to finish, the album is mostly punishing and unrelenting with a slight deviation to slowing things down a little on a few tracks. This album provides a full album of metal that aims to knock you on your ass and put its foot on your throat.
