All Ages Metal Matinee with
Extreme metal four-piece Narcotic Wasteland—the full-time project of former Nile frontman Dallas Toler-Wade. Fourteen years into his two-decade tenure with acclaimed Greenville, South Carolina technical death metal band Nile, guitarist and vocalist Dallas Toler-Wade was itching to explore new musical and lyrical frontiers. So he hooked up with some old buddies from his hometown Fayetteville, North Carolina and started writing old-school death metal inspired by some of their favorite bands, including Gorguts, Immolation, Incantation and Suffocation.
Violent and emotional metal band, Soulkeeper, is proudly based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. With their heavy and heartfelt EP release “Get Well Soon” out 7/8/16, this young quartet ambitiously brings life to an already thriving genre. Anxiously awaiting to perform their art driven and theatrical style, Soulkeeper signs with We Are Triumphant to take their sound across the world. Soulkeeper is our cult, join us.
